In No Time Things Change

So, remember how two posts I was kind of sort of complaining about my new job? Well over night I went from salad prep girl to banquet events dessert girl, which I am actually excited about. I am still learning the ins and outs as well as my true role in this position. But on my first night I was left alone to serve a 300 person party, talk about responsibility. At first I was totally freaking out, but in reality it’s not that bad. It’s all about timing, and pace. The next day I was in charge of a 500 and a 100 person party, needless to say that was a little more overwhelming, but I still made it happen with time to spare.  It seems as though once I really get the hang of things I could really make this “my department” the sales team is already asking me about new ideas, and trust me I have tons. On my days off I am looking through my recipes, and thinking of things that the team would really enjoy selling. I am also trying to analyze the negatives within the department, and looking at how the department operates, and slowly trying to make improvements.

With this new job I am on a sixty day probation period. During this time I think I am being tested, no not think, I know I am being tested. I believe they want to see how much work they can through on me before I get overwhelmed and quit. But I know that I will not get overwhelmed (well I already have but I already overcame that), and I have no intentions of quitting.

Forty-seven more days to go!

Hello fellow bloggers. My name is Bailey, but you can call me Bae. I am a 22 year old college graduate, and an aspiring pastry chef. I have recently been released into the real, wild, culinary world, and I am slowly finding my way. In the midst of it all I plan on exploring restaurants, pursuing food photography, critiquing recipes as well as creating my own, as well as reading as many chef biographies as my free time allows. I think it is important to know about the chefs that have paved the way for us fellow culinarians. It also allows you to sound educated when conversing with others in the field. I am very excited to see where this adventure takes me; I hope you will come along for the ride!
