Catering is extremely demanding financially and physically. It's a business.
I told the caterer I'd work for nothing if he'd teach me about catering. I lasted one week full-time. It was exhausting.
I'm always astonished to see how badly people can behave when they think no one is noticing.
I write in the morning - and then I'm always experimenting and tasting recipes for the books.
What one's goal should be is just to become a better writer and to tell different kinds of stories.
