Get back in the Kitchen!

It’s been a minute.

Ever since my beard started hosting its own cooking program 2.5 years ago, I haven’t really had any time to write articles, especially since my first restaurant, Chef’s Market, opened around the same time as this whole TV thing.

It’s terribly flattering and affords me recognition from people I admire and respect for my cooking, as well as an influence on how we eat and why. I’ve given a number of interviews about what its like being a TV celebrity chef so I’ll let those give you all the information. I’m just here to talk.

Cooking requires practice, so does writing. Only through practice do you get better and maintain a keen edge. That having been said, I fear my writing has been dulled through years of disuse. And twitter. Seriously, twitter has spoiled me and Instagram ruined me. A picture is worth a thousand words, right? So no caption needed, right? lets throw in some hashtags and we’ll be golden. #brainatrophy

So what am I on about? this post is just a flexing of the muscles, a clearing of the cognitive cobwebs. I must remember about baby steps – take it one day at a time. So this is short, but I’m hoping to get back into the swing of things. Maybe a post about the restaurant? maybe a treatise on the show, Matbakh 101? How does a few posts on my creative space, the Arabesque Development Kitchen? Many things are coming, and winter is certainly one of them.

Oh there will be recipes. For sure. In the meantime, thanks for reading. I’ve missed you (I’m looking at my keyboard).
