On large scale gatherings and catering

“Cooks are in some ways very much like actors; they must be fit and strong, since acting and cooking are two of the most exacting professions. They must be blessed - or cursed, whichever way you care to look at it - with what is called the artistic temperament, which means that if they are to act or cook at all well, it cannot be for duds or voodlers.”

Voluntarily acting as assistant cook for an evening, Sam Renseiw nevertheless managed to capture some footage from a larger event, catering to the employees of a Nordic Company.

Cooking is indeed very demanding work! The production of a meal for a hundreds is quite an undertaking--as is the production of a theatre play for hundreds!

I never had any inclination to the culinary schools or the theater, but I certainly enjoy the results of their labors.

The link links to something saying the video has been removed.

Fireworks are a great finale'.
