You heard right. I’m no longer involved with Super Linda (aka All Consuming Eater of Souls) – was asked to leave following an altercation after I DARED to change a dessert I didn’t put on the menu myself. Nasty business. Chef quit a few months ago. The state of the nation is, I’m back to being the sole source of all things pastry for Tiny’s and only Tiny’s, I’m working out of the prep kitchen at a nearby affiliated sports bar, and the former sous is now running the show at Tiny’s.
And things are going great! Better than expected, even. We were both ready to storm out when Chef left but…this is a chance to make a great place even better, and do what makes us happy. With a loyal kitchen staff behind him and an enthusiastic back and front of house behind me, we’re kicking ass.
In fact I have literally been told on several occasions recently, “do whatever you want.”
We’re tweaking and transforming the menus. Gone is the weird burger with sprouts, the crab dip, the brunch pastry basket.
We have a loyal enough following of regulars that I can fearlessly challenge them and myself at the same time.
I’m also currently still setting up my gorgeous new apartment with my fiancé (we have a private backyard and counter/cabinet space for miles!) and hugging Slappy, the cutest kitty in the world, daily. And I’m hoping to start sharing short but sweet recipes again soon!
