When I showed up, I was told that Chris was out for the night because he was getting a hot tub installed at his house. The cook said, Here’s the menu, here are your dishes, prep. If you have any questions, ask the guy beside you. We were slammed that night. Chris came in an hour into service and said, All right, you’re hired. If you want the job, come on down. So, a month later, that’s what I did. Trailblazing Citron’s kitchen was tiny, and that’s where I learned that you don’t need a massive kitchen to put out a lot of food.
Four days later his next-door neighbor came by, listened to him talk about this manicotti for a few minutes longer than he probably wanted to, and then said to Kasey, I’m a chef in town.
