  1. Congratulations to Erik on his great new opportunity! I have to chuckle though when I see the title “Executive sous chef”. Sous chef is a title that needs no furthur embelshment, unless it truly refers to
    to a position that is actually removed from day to day cooking operations. Sous chefs are some of the best cooks anywhere, because of their everyday practice of cooking. Thay are to be admired and emulated by line cooks, in that they have earned the trust of the chef to oversee QC in his or her absence while performing in the kitchen at the highest level themselves.
