So You Want To Be A Waiter

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

New link posted – Waitersfriend – A friend in waiting

I highly recommend this fairly new blog from three waiters in Australia.

This blog appears to have a lot of potential, focusing on practical information for waiters of all stripes. In that regard, the goal seems similar to my own blog – lots of culinary information and advice for the working waiter.

The tab, “a Waiter’s Glossary” is a great compendium of culinary terms that waiters should be familiar with. Not only does it cover the basics, there are a lot of more obscure culinary terms that can expand a waiter’s knowledge exponentially. So far, it’s just food-related items. I hope that they expand the glossary to include many of the arcane terms that we waiters use in our workdays. I have made such a list on this very blog and they are welcome to add the terms to their glossary.

This blog should prove to be a valuable reference for all of us, and so, I proudly add this to my blogroll and suggest that everyone of my readers check it out sooner rather than later.

    Thankyou for the generous write up – much appreciated! The glossary (and the whole site for that matter) is definitely a work in progress so thankyou for the permission to use your waiter terms – it gives me another job to crack on with this week. If you need anything from us let us know.
