Tools of the trade first CHEF SHIRT!
Anthony Bourdain is a chef that recklessly loved his craft and learned to speak from the heart turning both cooking, traveling and writing into his craft.
"Cooking is a craft, I like to think, and a good cook is a craftsman -- not an artist. There's nothing wrong with that: The great cathedrals of Europe were built by craftsmen -- though not designed by them. Practicing your craft in expert fashion is noble, honorable, and satisfying."
Who else can say that working on their craft has saved them? Saved you from boredom, saved you from heartache, saved you from depression, saved you from making bad decision. Working in a kitchen or behind a bar can be a grind that grinds you down but also a place of salvation when sometimes all you need in life is a distraction from everything outside of your grind. Work with a positive attitude and remember that when you grind yourself down, you sharpen yourself and find your gems. Gems that are always there but you need to grind to find them.
This custom design gives homage to the knife; a tool for craftsmen.
Thank you again Anthony Bourdain for dedicating your life to cooking, craftsmen, culture and people.
