The markets in Sicily: catania,floridia and palermo have fine ingredients and great vocals,which just sound like music when you don’t entirely understand them .

This stuff is just so dismal. People have personalities,good,bad, and ugly, which are exaservated under pressure. They might be good cooks, but lousy leaders, or need the time and self awareness to learn to be leaders. Too easy to judge from the outside...Who knows if they can really change, what else that they should do with their lives if run out of town.

true. of course, if one really wants to be a boss or a leader, one probably should also be prepared to step up and lead. she needs to step up for turning a blind eye, which she clearly did, in favor of her success over the dignity and safety of her female staff. i also recognize that she was being bullied, too

 

 

I don't think that young cooks thrust into the position of heading a kitchen really know what they are getting into a lot of the time, especially when they and their partners decide to open one restaurant after the other, along with the attendant hiring, firing,and babysitting issues....if only it was about just making good food...

Free and easy is fine in the hands of the top of the line staff,maybe not when they have to crank out a lot of food. Free and easy in the hands of new hires ,or not all that talented ones is bullpoopy...

Greenmarket goat is not inexpensive,and when you are rid of the bones, you are not getting very good bang for the buck. I gave up on it, after I couldn’t salvage free leftovers from the restaurants that I was working in. After purchasing a not all that cheap piece of lamb breast the other day,I would add that to the list of not much bang for the buck either, unless you like to eat fat.
