My kids (ages 5 & 13) have invited 25 family members to dinner to celerbrate their Mom's birthday this Friday night. Any suggestions on a spot to handle us? Any cuisine is fine in the Northridge/Granada Hills/Chatsworth area. Thanks
Save the sweats and backward baseball cap for the stadium. When you're eating at a nice restaurant, dress the part. WTF Are You Doing?! gives chefs the chance to gleefully re-enact the awful behavior they see in their dining rooms every day.
The kitchen has its own language, forged equally from hot pans and sharp things coming around corners, and tight spaces shared for hours on end. In this brand new series, we devote time to the words and phrases chefs hold near and dear to their sweaty, stressed out, crass little hearts. Today's deep-dive: SHOEMAKER.
Ah, yes: the phrase that’s basically your perpetual state of being, explained by the chefs who know it best. Ride that wave of panic, guys.
