I loved the restaurant business and have many fond memories. In the future I will recount some of the best personal stories for you. I am still a foodie with a passion for the finer things in life. This includes international cuisine and basic nutrition with a twist. I love to share. You can eat well and healthy at the same time. You could say that I am a true gourmet. My interest in the future of the industry remains strong. I will always be a restauranteur in my soul. I hope this blog will find some kindred spirits. I have a lot of knowledge to impart and it is not just about caviar (although is an expertise I have!)
When I retired, I felt at sea at first. It would be a huge change in the routine of my life. I would miss crafting menus, preparing novelty dishes and greeting the patrons. I would regret my decision, but it had to be. I also loved the staff with all my heart. When I left, I wanted some remembrances in the form of special plates, items of décor, or the wonderful commercial kitchen faucet from Kitchen Faucet Depot. I remember when I installed it after reading about the new technology online. I had to bring the restaurant kitchen up to date. You can have an old stove or fridge, but a good faucet is a godsend. The ideal model in my mind has a long enough curve to accommodate any pot or pan—no matter the size. It must have an easy adjustable neck, so you can move it from side to side during the rinsing process. I like touchless units, but I am all about hands-on when in the kitchen. The lever is easy enough to operate. Getting the right water flow is a matter of your work requirements. You can set a commercial faucet in a way that you cannot with home versions. I loved this faucet and had to take it with me. I still know my way around the kitchen. My sink at home can certainly handle this faucet as the drill holes are in just the right position. That is an important issue if you don’t want to replace your sink. You may not get to decide on deck or wall mounting. I don’t think it makes one bit of difference in my case as my set up is perfectly compatible.
Every time I look at the faucet, I think of my employee, Juan, sleeves rolled up and still in an apron. He stands tall in front of the chrome goddess. She bends forward to meet his every need. It could be a glass, a plate or a utensil. She sloshes water freely over the item surface, making it pristine once again. Now, she serves me every day, rain or shine. I can’t think of a better memento to take away from the old restaurant.
I am addicted to the finer things in life. It happened at an early age and stayed as I matured. This includes gourmet food (for the most part), nice clothing and accessories, and a late model luxury car. I could add living in a good neighborhood in a state-of-the-art home and having the best fixtures and furnishings. I love to pursue the arts. All this is actually a fantasy of mine because we can’t have it all. I just want to have “some.” How about you?
I spend most of my idle time pursuing great restaurants, the best wine, recipes, cooking techniques, and new sources of caviar. I threw in that last one to show how broad a range exists in this foodie category. It may sound far-fetched, but in point of fact it is true. I have my preferences but am pretty open to new cuisine and all sorts of delicacies. I love to share my passion with readers who might be of the same persuasion, so to speak. People often ask, “Aren’t you interested in anything but wine and edibles?” “Of course,” I reply. I am into maintaining a proper image of refinery and elegance. This means attending to my shirts and ties, matching shoes and socks, and a trendy watch. Everything gets dry cleaned, pressed and polished (in the case of the shoes). An 18K tie tack keeps my tie neat and in place. My hair is freshly cut on a monthly basis and immaculate. I am a spectacle to behold. Just kidding! It is not vanity to present your best face to the world.
My accessories such as my business bag get the same close attention. You can’t go about your life being stylish unless you address every little detail. I leave no stone unturned to make it clear. My bag gets dirty inside from a change of shoes or a dusty watch case. Outside there are signs of some wear and the bag needs regular care and treatment to keep the leather soft and supple. I keep it looking like new. It takes work to maintain your look, my friend. I imagine the criticism: “you could do better more useful and productive things with your time.” I beg to differ. Looking good beats acting like a slob. I see so many overweight people in torn jeans and ratty tees. Are they really proud of their flip flops? They never leave them by the pool.
I am proud of what I have become. I have worked hard to be the best I can be every day of my life. Everyone should desire the same for themselves. To say that you only live once may be trite, but it is certainly true. Select what is important to you and pursue it with a vengeance. You will regret it for sure if you don’t. I counsel friends, family, and colleagues to follow my lead; and I am now out to recruit you.
When a person is looking to buy caviar there are many different types to choose from. The caviar will have different flavors based on how it is produced, the type of fish that it originates from, and how long it is aged or brined. Before purchasing caviar it is important to learn about the different types and the flavors that they will provide.
This caviar is made from sturgeons. It is soft and clear. The eggs are about the size of a pea. The color of these eggs ranges from silver to black and they have a creamy texture.
