Christmas in a Swedish bistro
“Being pathologically averse to even second-hand confrontation, I found his behaviour terrifying.“
Good god, this was a traumatic bedtime story! I admit to chuckling alternating with horror as the story went!
Lololol what a punny title. I feel for your painful experience. You said it well: "Being a chef is hard. You burn and bleed to get the job done somedays." Seems like everyone was on edge and under pressure. The only way to survive is to not take it personally and keep your head up.
Having never really left the back end of hospitality, let me reassure you that the kitchen nightmares never really disappear, they just morph to suit your new life. It will keep you on your toes, even when you know the security codes. Bravo for triggering an early morning memory and making me laugh over first coffee.
Geeze, I almost missed the title, so excited was I to dive into the (quite entertaining!) story. “Pork Shank Redemption” is freakin’ brilliant. 😂
“But I’m glad Mårran did his best to make that Christmas Season worse.” Great read, Wil and love the title! :)
This is really lovely. A great read. Thank you!
What an excellent read, thank you.
The worst thing about WhatsApp group chats is when you leave one and someone adds you back. Almost as if they're saying, "we're not done with you, get back in here, loser." Or at least that's how I interpreted it.
I'm glad you're writing about Christmas buffets because just yesterday I started humming Christmas songs. It really is the most wonderful time of the year. Well, except maybe if you're working with Mårran from Moomin.
