In a busy kitchen a sharp knife is your most important tool. With continual use, it dulls, but much like watching yourself slowly age you don't realize it's gotten quite as dull as it has until you find yourself using massive force to cut an onion. It's time to sharpen.
The Knife's Edge is my attempt to sharpen your other most important tool. Your mind. After years of owning a restaurant in a small Northern California town my wits have become dull. My once strong opinions have been shelved and most of my thoughts are kept to myself in the interest of not offending potential or existing customers. This blog will be a whetstone to regain my edge.
Once I get a few pictures to post, I'll start getting this to look right. And since it's been a long time since this tool has been sharpened, there's going to be a lot of debris flying for a while. The next post, the promised rants and raves a la John Waters' wonderful Puff Piece and Hatchet Job, from his book Crackpot.
