I cook at a 4 star hotel in Philadelphia that rhymes with Core Reasons - mostly banquets but I step on the line as needed.

EMALSKY <> :lol: I’ve had maybe two days off in the last 4 weeks; I’m owed over 2500 hours in back compensation over the last 2 years. Last time in the South of France was for 49 days; I worked 19 hours a day for 47… 2 days off, I was comatose. I’m 19 hours in on a 35 hour shift. I’m prepping for a “kosher-style” party of 104 confirmed tomorrow. We have a Nobel Prize Winner on premise for an Israeli Cancer Research Foundation. I have to deal with a Kosher caterer of whom will be catering to a select 12 devout Kosher. I have to set him up in a satellite kitchen, after it has been blessed by a Rabbi, of course. I have numerous VIP assistants changing special instructions daily. I have numerous principals complaining about nothing to push down on others shoulders to elevate their own egos. I have product that I had to return, and I’m waiting for that purveyor to do right in the morning… which weeds me further. That is but a fraction, but I don’t have the time nor desire to divert my focus anymore than this just did. Just know… cooking is the easy part, you don’t want my job.

Think you do. You have no idea…

Oh, NYC... I worked on Central Park South (59thW) & 6th in The Ritz Carlton. I had clients from 09 till 2011 that own the 23rd floor. I was domiciled between Lex & Park on 94th.

I do property management and rentals of vacation villas in Cabarete, Dominican Republic. In my vanishingly few off hours I cook stuff on the grill.
