    New gig

    Today i officially sign the papers to start as the sous for a local Japanese restaurant. I'm ver excited wanted to work here for years. It is possibly the best sushi spot in Salt Lake, and while i won't be doing too much with that i do get to mostly run the main kitchen. Leaving a gig as head chef but at a struggling and poorly run place that i improved as much as i could but in the end the long commute (50minutes one way) and owner who won't spend money to pay for needed repairs were the end. That and his 19 yr old daughter acts like she runs the place and gets away with anything i couldn't do it any more. I'm super pumped for this and to be back in downtown SLC.

    Sweet, congrats. Good thing you won't have to drive that canyon during winter anymore. Will have to stop by and check out the new place when you get established.

    I know I am liking my change of type of cuisine. Granted I am only washing dishes but the change of style is very therapeutic, and fun to see something new.

    Gratz on the new gig. Hope it turns out the way you want it to.

    Congrats!! Must be a relief and sometimes enough is enough. Nothin' worse than working with the boss' kids. ;-)

    Yeah probably end up being a usuba or mukimono over the next year already have a deba and the kiritsuke handles anything yangiba related. Handles usuba related tasks too perhaps I'll just end up even more profficient with it. I'm most excited to work with people who care about their knives like i do.

    For those in the Salt Lake area it is the "Naked Fish Japanese Bistro" Swing by I don't start till next tuesday, but you'll be hard pressed to find sushi better than they have there (my opinion which I had before I worked there)

    I just got out of a meeting with the owner, he is great. There are things in the works that if we do our things correctly over the next will move us out beyond the eye of local media and hopefully bring us some national attention.
