It was a balancing act. We had to simultaneously spend about 50 hours in the commissary kitchen last week, and keep Austin abreast of late breaking news in the world of food and drink.

We managed to pull it off by pulling a 16 hour shift cooking on Saturday for our Terlingua pop up. Blaring Ashanti and Fat Joe the Gangster whilst doing so made it all worthwhile.
