I do have a dream. But for that to happen I need to be known. Or to be more exact, I need people to know my name and what I do. My food. My way of thinking. And I know it sounds very shallow “know, famous, etc.”.. I know it does, but it is what I need to fulfil my dreams. And there are different kinds of famous. It’s not that I expect to become the next Marco Pierre White…
Do you know who Jiro Ono is? Of course you don’t, and that’s okay! He has one of the best sushi restaurants in the world. He is booked over a year in advance. Jiro is a 91-year-old man, who has a restaurant with 10 seats. Jiro started in a kitchen when he was 7. And is now the proud owner of Sukiyabashi Jiro! A 3 Michelin star awarded restaurant. HE IS 91 and is still working almost every day. That’s amazing. That’s what I want, that’s the kind of famous I want to be. I want people to know me for what I can do. But the problem is that I don’t even know what I can do right now. I can cook, I can cook really good food, and I have an eye for plating.
But every chef has to find his way. Like right now I enjoy cooking everything, but when it’s time for me to start my own business I can’t have a menu with a billion dishes just because I enjoy cooking everything. I need to find a path of what I want to do, the thing I do best. Well… I have a few years left to figure that out I guess. But I am very impatient. Ever since I was 16 and and still till this day I want to be older, wiser, better. Just jump 10 years ahead, that would be enough. But maybe that’s a good thing that I can’t, imagine all the things I would miss haha.
Here we are again, stuck in my mind, a spinning swirl of thoughts about everything, and it isn’t even noon yet..
Well people, now it’s time for breakfast and then I have to get ready for work! Woop woop! Next week I’m trying out some new dishes for the next menu! So don’t forget to check out the blog now and then! Thank you for your time.
