It was extremely difficult in the beginning, to handle a kitchen, the cooking etc, but every single day was a learning for me.I always keep it to that, there’s so much to learn out there, from managing a staff of 14 in a kitchen to now handling two kitchens, it’s a great leap for me, and something that I am proud of.I obviously want to continue growing, and learning every single day!
