■Break the Ice
A - Alwyn H - Hinata
L(Hinata) talks about her first day at her new culinary job
A: How was your first day at work?
H: It was exhilarating! My colleagues were a blast and
I also learned a lot today.
A: That’s good to know, I hope you’ve been honing your
knife skills. I remember you mentioning that you aren’t
good with knives.
H: I managed to refine my skills during the winter break,
although I’m still lagging behind when it comes to speed.
I’m lucky we have tools that allow us to catch up with
poor knife skills.
A: Oh really now, what kind of special tools do you use?
H: It’s not that special, as a matter of fact, the tools we
use can be normally found in the kitchen!
A: Does that mean I can make those grandiose dishes that
H: I wouldn’t describe them like that (laughs modestly),
but yes you can.
A: Hold on, I think we’re getting off-topic here, tell me more
about your colleagues.
H: Sorry about that! Hmm… They’re great and they really work
well together. Their teamwork is a sight to see.
A: That’s expected from kitchen professionals!
By the way did you make any blunders?
H: Unfortunately, I did. I broke a plate! I was surprised
because I’ve been handling them all day but that time,
I think, it hit another plate and it just shattered!
A: (jaw drops) what? How did that happen?
H: I don’t know, and because it was our peak hours
I didn’t have the time to think about it.
