Coming to you from a quiet restaurant

Dear Feastlings,
As you’re well aware by now, Sundays, with the exception of Father’s Day, we’ve been shuttered, and as close as we thought we were to reopening, two potential coworkers excitedly agreed to interviews this week, and neither showed up. A third showed up and excitedly agreed to come in and work what we call a stage (say it with a French accent,) a day or two in the kitchen so we can see if you have solid knife skills, how many pans you can handle at once, and have knowledge of basic sanitation practices. He disappeared as well. In the meantime, we’ve been given four days’ notice by one new employee, and notice of impending retirement by someone who’s been with us for nearly 20 years, and with whom I’ve worked, on and off, for 35. So Sundays, I’m afraid, are still a non-starter, and if any of you knows someone with some catering production background who’s itching to cater again, we’d love an introduction.

So today, for those of you who’ll be following along on the wine tasting,

Things are heating up- climate change and wine

you’ll find me on the screen, alone in a vacant restaurant, scratching my rapidly balding head over what to do next and probably not spitting as much as usual as I taste along with you. If you’re cooking along with me today, I’ll tell you now that I plan on adding a nonstick pan to your list of necessary items today, but I haven’t updated the heating instructions just yet. I’ll head into the restaurant shortly to do it, or you can just know that when we get to course three, you should have that pan ready, along with some oil or pan coating that you can spray into the pan. That’s the only real change to the tasting. As to logging in, you’ll do it with this information,
