So You Want To Be A Waiter

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

New blog added – Culinary Grammar

This is a nice blog for foodies. There’s enough food porn to keep the “gourmand” in each foodie happy and there is a personal touch that marks the best private culinary blogs.

The author is/was in Nashville, so there’s that. There’s lots of local color that she exposes to the rest of the world. She is a graduating student who is moving to Dallas to teach, so this might explain why the last post was back in April. Perhaps she graduated back in the spring and she’s getting established in her new career. I suspect that she will pick back up when things get stabilized because she obviously has an affinity for talking about food. I know all about having to take a break, although my recent break was less to do with recharging and more to do with taking care of business. I normally don’t recommend dormant blogs, but I just get the feeling that it’s a temporary condition.

Perhaps I’ll do a post in the near future recommending truly dormant blogs because there are a few that remain relevant, funny and interesting even though the author might have left the food industry.

So, let’s drink a nice sweet tea over our plate of collards and welcome Steph to the fold!

Here’s a pic from the blog (I reduced the size – it’s bigger there). It’s a nice table of food from my friend and great chef Margo McCormack’s lovely restaurant, Marché:

    Thanks so much for the welcome!

    Your hypothesis about my disappearance is right on the mark. I’m teaching K-8 Spanish so I’ve been in over my head teaching 9 grades, but I will be returning to blog very very soon. You’ve given me the jump I needed!

    Hi, i just thought i’d post and let you know your blogs layout is really messed up on the K-Melonbrowser. Anyhow keep up the good work.

      Viagra – I’m usiing you as an example of what I consider spam. It was a pretty good attempt to break into the comments section, and, in this case, I let it go but removed your link. So it’s a lose/lose for you, especially since there’s nothing wrong with the layout of the blog in the K-Melion browser.

      So, for you spammers out there, make sure that at the very least, your comments are not only relevant, but also factually correct. I’m not here to promote whatever venture you happen to be promoting, unless it’s something actually related to this blog, like another waiter’s site, culinary site, or something that I personally like.

      Otherwise, you just end up in the trash bin.
