What is the best part about what you do? What is the worst part?

Being a cook & owner of my own restaurant gives me creative freedom to make anything that inspires me and sharing it with people. I would say that is the best part. The worst part is the amount of responsibility that comes with running a restaurant, from supply shopping, scheduling, employees, menu planning, ordering etc. IT CAN BE A LOT!

What is your favourite joke about your own profession?

“No way, you’re a cook, You must make amazing meals for yourself at home”

Yeah right. Lol
