So You Want To Be A Waiter

The best book on waiting tables that you have never read – yet

A new month

May – the month of possibilities. It may stay spring for another month. Maybe the economy will pick up and people can keep their houses. It may stop raining before I have to build an ark – you know, stuff like that.

Well, with a new month comes new possibilities. For us waiters, we should look at each month as a time for self-evaluation. What bad habits are we slipping into? What new foods and culinary procedures can we learn about so that we are a more expert waiter? What new wines can we learn about? How can we become more efficient during times of the tall grass? How can we polish our movements that much more?

Come to think of it, this advice is useful for any worker, so if you’re a civilian, take a look at yourself as well. In these uncertain economic times, it would behoove all of us to be brilliant at our jobs.

Think of the first of each month as your yearly smoke detector battery check.

I’m going to try and feature one food item or dish recipe, one wine, and one culinary concept on the first day of each month. I’m hoping to also pepper the month with such little nuggets, so stick around.
