Welcome to Daily Food Bank!!!
Welcome to Daily Food Bank, for those of you who have found this blog through the Tastings Wine Bar & Bistro site, welcome to my contribution to the culinary experience.
At this stage, I will begin to take you through the remaining weeks of our construction phase at Tastings.Beginning this week and every week from here until we open, I will keep you up to date on all the happenings, from our new management team, to our build out progress and beyond. Follow us as we prepare to take you on a food and wine experience like no other you have experienced in this area.What is it really like to open a new restaurant?? I will share with you my experiences, both good and bad, as well as show you through photos where we are week by week.
Once we are open, I hope you will continue to follow my kitchen team and I through our process of development. We will share with you our new dishes, our techniques and oddly enough, most importantly our failures,as I believe this is the only way to move forward in a kitchen environment, understand your mistakes and failed dishes and you begin to understand how to succeed.
Both my kitchen team and I want to bring you into this multi sensory experience by giving you behind the scenes information, pictures, recipes and most of all a sense of why we do what we do. Why do we love the chaos? love the long hours? working weekends?Most will never understand, most will think we are crazy, only those who live it day in and day out will fully understand, but I hope that through our posts you can determine your own answers to those questions. Its different for each of us so called "kitchen rats", but I will do my best to express to you through Daily Food Bank what it is all about to me and my crew.
