Batali-65.jpgMario Batali writes a thoughtful essay about his first job in a professional kitchen. It started with washing dishes at a pizza place in New Jersey called Stuff Yer Face: "When the dishes were all clean, I would go up and help the guys on the line, which is the first way to become a cook. You're not even being paid for it. You might say that some people that go into cooking today don't want the cooking job. They want the Tom Colicchio job. The thing is, there aren't very many of those jobs." [Mad Feed]
