Cook the dream!15.07.2016
The kitchen ... The special place full of magic!
Cooking is something that makes me feel good, because it is something I have learnt from my family, it is something that we do together and we enjoy having the time together to tell each other about how our day was, or just to become a little closer. In my house, the kitchen is something that is special and magical, where they leave spices and unforgettable flavors, mixed with laughter and stories that I bring with me from childhood.
When you work on a PM shift in catering, the biggest concern is that the food has that special spice too, because there are usually days of great rush because making food for over 200 people is not easy, and the staff are always looking to make the best meals. Your day begins, and the first task is crying, but you only cry because you are cutting onions! Of course when you make food at home, usually you use 3 onions, but for 200 people we use soooo many onions, and you begin alone, in the end there is always someone to help you, and to join you in crying laughing with you because we do everything, even when cutting onions we do with great joy, just to pass this energy to the food we are preparing! Then... the kitchen atmosphere turns! Here comes the magic, super cheesy tunes with some bad dancing, the sound of laughter, and ZAZ! The meals are ready! I know that I have put all of my love in to making these meals. Cooking makes me feel a little closer to my home in Brazil.
When people compliment our meals, it fills me with delight! My heart explodes and I feel very happy! I feel that this happiness shows with my big smile and my very loud and infectious laugh! This is why I smile!
