Hard dating chef
To see the burns and the cuts from that darn mandolin.
You aren’t ever going to spend New Year’s Eve together or maybe Christmas either. It’s a page turner for sure and you learn of my new idol, Brian Polcyn of Forest Grill, has something many Chefs lack, balance between home and work, with a successful restaurant, wife and 5 kids. These guys, these Chefs,---they have tons of stress mentally and physically. When he’s had a rough day at work be the one who gives him a back rub or takes him out for a beer and a chat.(Very much like George Clooney’s character in the movie Up in The Air.) The waiter joked “Well it’s not like you get to see him anyhow.” The sad thing? He argues that it’s more like 80 /20 but I disagree. Sure, you’ll never know as much as he knows,--he went to culinary school to learn all those things!!If you are going to date a chef, realize that you can never really be “normal”. To me MAC is always going to be makeup and computers not knives. So I do recommend that you get used to text messages, photos from your phone and of course maybe an email thrown here and there just telling him he’s awesome and you’re thinking about him.When I first met Brian and he said he was a Chef, I nodded. When he said he was a chef at one of the best restaurants in Chicago,--my eyes lit up! And the calluses on his right hand that will never go away. It used to be sharks but I am now more afraid of time than anything in this world. And you will know what I mean if you decide to date a chef.I assumed, like most girls, that this meant a whirlwind romance of fancy dinners prepared for me daily, lots of time to spend together, and of course,--being able to get into places I normally can’t snag myself. It’s great to be with someone who is so passionate about their work. My best advice is that you just relax when you do see him.
