Talking SCHOP! A birthday first in Canada, Part III
Kysha Harris | 7/3/2019, 11 a.m.
Before anything, Marcus sent over two glasses of champagne as our eyes bounced over the fish, seafood and vegetable forward menu. Jason and I decided on our entrees of spicy crab pasta and trout, but then here comes a whole raw bar platter of seafood presented by the Chef de Cuisine, Nicholas Bramos, replete with Marcus’ signature sparklers. Who needs a birthday cake when you have a platter of sashimi, crudo and seafood? Not me!
As the sparkers were lit and Jason led the birthday song, I began to well up with emotion. Yes, it was my birthday, my last year in my forties, but professionally I felt recognized for all of my hard work in food for the last 17 entrepreneurial years—cooking, writing, consulting, producing and so much more.
I am grateful for this journey and all my family, friends and colleagues on it with me. Cheers to you and yours.
Canada…thank you. I will be back.
Happy eating and thanks for reading!
