By the way, this was written as my final thoughts on my last day of my favourite stage.
The peacefulness of that courtyard on a saturday night, passing buses of drunken students, the mild breeze from the river and the golf course. That black nothingness that the road beyond the bins led to, the wonder in them eyes of a new customer, or a cheeky smile from that girl on the bench. The food making you miss home and recapture lost memories, that german pinot noir that made you feel like a king. That michael buble soundtrack, that ‘I’ll miss you’ nod or them “we’ll have a final drink’ words. That splash of sea salt instead of a sprinkle, that sizzle of butter instead of a simmer, that tearing of delicate mushroom petals, that smudge of sauce or serving up a cold plate. Them kind words of the potwash, the housekeeping and front of house, the way the soms dance with their descriptions of vintage wines with confit lemons and dry cured bacon. That chardonnay from washington or that riesling from spain. That gypsy scare near the freezer, that call of ‘Drooveey’ ten times a day, that slap on the back or dig in the ribs, them free gulps of miso soup in between kitchens, them long list of memories and moments. All being swallowed into the passion spent in them hot, steamy, soapy kitchens. For me that was Sat Bains.
It doesn’t look like much, but it got me praise from all the chefs I’ve looked up to and been lucky enough to work alongside for the past month. This moment today was a happy one. #Cheflife #proud #satbains #callmesugardaddy
