Is TV stardom lurking in those dirty dishes?



It soon became apparent that it requires more tools to prepare the food than to serve it.

How many measuring cups, spatulas, graters, peelers, pans, bowls, processors and other stuff does one cook need?

I pointed out politely that TV chefs had an army of crew members to clean up after their cooking shows but she had only me.

I asked respectfully if I should refer to myself as her “key grip” or “best boy” or whatever a flunky is called in a TV kitchen.

I was standing at the kitchen sink, drying my dishpan hands, when she answered:

“Cheer up. If I make it to The Food Network, I might take you with me.”
