Chefs have a no cheat day schedule. Or, we cannot afford one. When people dine out, they want their food to be the BEST, not the Second best. No matter how tired I am or how many hours slept I got the night before, I need to perform.
Challenge is not about cooking great food. It is about cooking great food every time, even under pressure. That’s what we see in Master Chef or any other cook-off program.
I find my motivation from different things. A new recipe found online, through social media or even from good reviews from my customers. My kitchen is my happy place. I love what I do, which is why I try 100% every day. The thing that demotivates me the most is empty tables. The best music in the restaurant is people talking, eating and having a good time. I love it when it’s busy and customers at every table.
I don’t want to comment on COVID as I think enough has been said in the past. I just want it to go away like a bad dream and want to wake up smiling again. All this has made me realise that great people surround me. People who walk through our front door and bet their money to try their luck. The first-timers don’t know what to expect. So how can I not give my 100%? The love and support I’m getting from my local community are excellent.
Thanks for being my inspiration/motivation, and I will see you again.
