What else do you learn in the process?

revelLast week Karin and I went out for her birthday, we visited a few museums with friends because it was First Thursday and then made our way to REVEL in Fremont. I had just eaten there with a co-worker earlier in the week and knew that she would absolutely love it. We had a great time sitting at the bar, talking about life, enjoying each other and watching the masters cook. It was an eye opening time, just as it usually is when you sit and watch chefs at a good restaurant. It is a time that is both mesmerizing and inspiring.

I enjoy cooking but the reality is most nights it actually heating up things bought from Trader Joes. So I watched these pros with a different eye then usual. The part that I was amazed with was how clean they were. Any drop that fell was cleaned up immediately. Each bowl was prepared without streaming sauce or flying ingredients. Everything was done with such care and precision. After that night I realized not only do I need to fall more in love with food to become a great cook, I also need to become in love with cleaning. That is something that I can work on all the time, whether food is present or not.
