    I dunno...I kinda like that.

    But then again, I like this too: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZPoqNeR3_UA

    I like music during prep sessions in our back kitchen or when I'm cleaning down. During service and especially when I'm setting up my section I can't stand any kind of distraction at all, a whole new persona takes over.

    For me, knives are a pretty obvious choice. Even if I don't have to use them a lot, I feel completely lost without them. A pre-service coffee or tea is usually on the cards too. In terms of other equipment for service.. I would hate to be without a couple of tea towels, a set of tongs and a stack of spoons. Fish spatula is handy too. I'm pretty desperate for a solid microplane at the moment too come to think of it..

    JB Prince offset plating tweezers. Lost a pair one time and felt disabled without them.

    Wooden spoons. The only thing they do special, is remind me I'm cooking for family. Gotta drop some of the work posture when you're at your mothers house, and do it the way she did.

    Generic herb scissors, lintless side towels, and sharpies. I would like better scissors but cannot get past the $3 price tag and they have lasted over 2 years
