A weird thing happens when you become involved in the catering business. You begin to hate, detest, even loathe your own food. After week in and week out of making the same things over and over, the monotony of it all starts to get to you. Tasting the same flavors, sniffing the same smells- it can become almost unbearable. There was a time when I truly felt that if I had to look at even one more crab cake or caramel bar, I might just lose it.
Luckily for me, I’ve been out of the catering grind for almost a year and a half now, and oddly enough, I’ve been finding myself craving some of those dishes that I at one point used to abhor. Crab cakes are once again becoming desirable. I enjoyed making that batch of caramel bars a few weeks ago. As of last week, I even succumbed to my craving for Cheesy Zucchini and Red Onion Flatbread.
