    Default Cheffie has a new toy for her kitchen

    I have a new stove that needs to be tested out this weekend. Who is free for dinner?



    I should add, I live in a small rental studio with a small kitchen area that had old appliances. The new stove/oven is small (apartment size) but NEW!!!!

    Who's Hungry?

    I'll come & help cook for the hoardes (if you don't mind the help)... I am a chef too.

    What's on the menu?

    I'm free for dinner. Just give me a call.

    depends on what is good and fresh when I go to Whole Foods Saturday.


    chicken or perhaps seafood.....you'd think with a firehouse full of hungry lads, I could find one or two that might be hungry.



    ps. Probie. I've been to Scotland before in my travels through Europe. Beautiful country. I had a great time. got a wee bit lost, missed the last train, had to sleep in a train carriage overnight in the station, could not understand half of what they said, but the international words are "Buy you a Pint?". Found that works everytime.

    Aaah yes, those magic words... work a treat every time!

    As to my cheffing history, I did my chef training in Her Majesty's Royal Air Force & stayed in the service another 5 years. Moved up to Inverness, got married (to a Scotsman!) & we have a little boy now, 4 years old. I am still cheffing now for a catering company that runs a staff canteen in a local medical facility.

    Do I qualify as reasonable help in your establishment?

    Cheffy, I could really use a good home cooked meal.

    What ever you are fixing, I would be happy to partake in! I'll even do the dishes afterwards!

    Cheffy,

    What kind of stove did you get? I'm sick of my malfunctioning electric range and oven and want to go back to gas (we moved, and the electric appliances came with the house), but I priced them, and they're outrageous! Do you have any recommendations for a basic range/oven? Thanks. By the way, enjoy!

    Since I live in a rental, I had no say in what they gave me. (it is electric). In a perfect world, I would like to have one that has gas burners on top and dual ovens on the bottom ( one side electric, one side gas).

    But since when is the world perfect. However, this one is far better than the one I had. Dinner will be wonderful this weekend. As for brands, that I do not know.

    I am working on the menu.

    Hey,y'all don't laugh too hard.This is how my Chief gets people to show up for training twice a month:"If you feed them,they will come."
    I've been on for two years and a couple times,the only solid food I ate during a month was when I went to training meetings.It does wonders for attendence.
    As to me showing up,I don't like to fly and won't be rude enough to ask what's in the feedbag before I'll commit.

    Puffy, for you anything. I make killer chocolate chips cookies.

    As for the menu, I am working on it. Chicken or seafood for the main course.

    CR-Now what fun would it be if I gave his name away?
