lastly, I've done the 10 course meal for 10 people, but I just couldn't see myself serving in plastic plates. In return, I would need to clean the plates and I often volunteer 1 of my friend to do it and rotate to another friend. It's fun and it gets you to connect with someone else.

whta i do NOT like doing is ensuring my guest doesn't get sick afterwards. YES i know if everything is handled properly, it would be ok, but I don't like to feel the pressure if osmething doesn't turn out well.
Yeah, I need new plates, my ikea plates just aren't quite cutting it, but I guess those things will come in due time? I still feel like I'm just learning about food, ingredients and textures. The visual aspect seems like a whole different ball park. Last thing I'd want to be is pretentious.

The rotating dishwasher thing works, but again, still a bit new at this, lots of scrambling around even with 2 people in the kitchen we're not the quickest. Still just focusing on getting to food right and plated.

As for getting guests sick, I've never really put too much thought into it.
I don't leave meat lying around, I scrub my table and sink down, you know, just a general tidy work space. All my meat is usually day-of or I bought it the night before. Why are you so worried? As long as you're neat and you scrub your surfaces, I think you'd really have to try to make somebody ill.

Still thinking I have terrible timing and quality isn't consistent.
I hate the idea of hyping something up and not being able to deliver.
Been working on learning some more basics.

I've been busy having friends over all summer.
I guess i should post up pics pretty soon

It's ramen season soon, maybe I'll start with a small group then.
At least I know my ramen's half decent.
