Good news: The chef is so impressed with her talent and work ethic that he gave her permission to come up with the special last Tuesday night, his night off. After checking what was in stock already and considering costs and prep time, she proposed London Broil with pearlized onions. The chef gave this his enthusiastic approval. She was so excited.
Bad news: No one ordered it. Except the chef, who stopped by to see how she was running his kitchen in his absence. She will only acknowledge being proud of the faith the chef showed in her, not disappointment. Well, I AM DISAPPOINTED.
