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.
