Great news. I have a job in the food/hospitality industry


You couldn't have written this opportunity more perfectly. Coco Tang are opening a Parisian style cafe in the centre of Nottingham in early June 2010. The empty premises is currently going through a re-fit and I have been recruited as a plongeur - a kitchen porter. For those on flickr who know me as Frenchyphil this job couldn't be more perfect and I am so happy. It's French in style, it's quality food, it's chic, it's sexy and it's very easy for me to get to work. I am waiting to hear exactly when I start but I believe it to be this weekend. Wow!!!



Big thanks to Steve and Henry from Coco Tang for putting their trust in me. I hope to be a great asset to their business.

Big thanks to all of my followers too for all your support and encouragement in these last 17 months since this blog first started. Twenty-three plus thousand hits so far can't be wrong. Merci bien.

Phil xx

Congratulations.

I will raise a glass in your honour. Probably at the Chinese restaurant ce soir !!

Oh Phil, this is such fabulous news. I reckon in about a year you will either be the maitre d' or the sous. At least you will have one foot in the door and they are very lucky to have someone so enthusiastic, charming and bloody good at cooking. And think of all those pretty ladies coming in...

The best of luck for your first day - hope you'll still have time to blog.

Ah my little French fancy, I am so pleased for you but a little bit sad that I won't see you as much, the selfish person that I am!

Best wishes Phillipe. I hope it works out well for you. It's not a chain I know, but will probably give them a go sometime.

Thanks everyone for all your comments and good thoughts. I'm sure I'll be very happy there - working in the professional kitchen. Met the head chef today. He seems a very nice fella and wants to get me involved in the prep once we get started.
