do you guys realize matt has a job that most chefs would kill for? hell, it even has me thinking
I requested the day off a while ago, but stuff happens and what are you going to do. I love my job with all its ups and downs. I am holding out a glimmer of hope, but I am being realistic. You guys can always come visit me!
I have never been to a gathering before, so I dont know if this is standard operating procedure...but is someone bringing a case of onions or something for everyone to go to town on? Myself and I am sure others work in restaurants and could maybe help bring some produce or whatnot to chop up. Maybe we can make 100 gallons of onion soup afterwards.

I think we had "stuff" to cut the first year, but no one seemed to bother. I even had a case of whole chickens for folks to try out their debas... We'll have about 40# of beef for anyone to test but hopefully that will be tender. I could easily pick up a 50# bag of onions if everyone would like.
Ok guys, as the time is getting closer, i'm starting to think about what stuff to bring with me. This year i'm going to be sending stuff ahead of time so i want to know if there are any specific things you would like to see/have around for purchace.
I'm already planning on bringing a bunch of stones to play with (including most if not all of our gesshin lineup) and some of my personal knives for you guys to see in person (including a gesshin hide yanagiba, my Konosuke HD, a prototype suji we have, and some of the Gesshin Ginga line). Anything else i should bring/send?
I have limited space, so i just want to make sure i really have the things you guys want.
P.S. Feel free to PM me with specific requests of things you want to see/try out (if possible)
I just want to say that I cannot attend. I signed up but unfortunately I am out of luck. Really was looking forward to meeting everyone in person but it just ain't gonna happen this year. I have not been able to unsign up on the event site.
Oh man bummer.....we're loosing more and more.
I just got my schedule for this week. Yea no way I am making it. In fact I might just sleep at the restaurant this week. HAHAHAHA, I am gonna miss you guys. Take plenty of pictures guys!
