Pheww!!! 1st day in my new job, at a famous French caterer…..started at 6h45 and finished at 19h45, with 35m for lunch. It’s work, work, work…..lots of repetitive work, but lots of creativity as well. Everyone seems to have a very good “team ethic”, where we all stay until all work is finished…..it’s odd, but working 12h30 does not really pose a problem since we all want to get the work done – from the head chef down to the trainees.
Given that the French Open has just started we have loads of work and everyone is on a 7 day week for the next 2 weeks. So, even though we talk about it all of the day, I don’t think that I’ll be seeing much of Roland Garros !
Anyway, I simply wanted to record the start of my 5/6 weeks at my first caterer in France.
Stay tuned to hear more about my experiences in one of the most respected caterers in France.
Bon courage mais tout ça c’est aussi du bonheur !
