In the food world, “family meal” is a time when an entire restaurant gets together and shares a bite to eat. From dishwashers to head chef, everyone gets an equal share (if their ass gets there time). It’s nothing fancy. Usually leftovers and odd bits from kidnapped from the walk-in– but it’s a nourishing ritual that gets the whole gang a minute off their feet to feel like a team. No one’s too good to dig in, and it starts service off on well-fed note.
Family meal is something we’ve instituted on blog cook days, too. It keeps our heads level and blood sugar stable while we crank through a month’s work of prep and photography; it helps us reduce food waste and feed our hungry studio guests; it gives Lucy a chance to show off while I knock out a load of dishes (oooooor check and re-check instagram); it gives us a chance to sit down, tell dumb jokes, gossip, and listen to Biscuits on repeat.
