The staff consists of the owner and chef, Theo, with Chloe, Padma, Tara, and myself. Whenever something isn't covered, whether it be a sink of dishes, a panini needing pressing, or a customer requiring three chocolate croissants and a large coffee to go, whoever has a free hand jumps over to whatever needs to be done.
When I began my internship, I was first trained as a baker. Once I'd become familiar with the kitchen and had proved I was a competent intern, I learned how to run the cash register and began helping customers.
Perhaps it is because my coworkers and I are constantly switching tasks, our work is never boring or redundant. I'm excited to go to work every day and thoroughly enjoy my time there. I get to mix and bake breads, make croissants start to finish, create tarts, pies, and cookies galore, and to top it off I get to serve and talk to customers. I'm a people person, and when in my first Internship on Nantucket, I truly missed having a connection with guests as I was unable to leave the kitchen. I'm so glad that I now get to talk to customers, give suggestions, and most importantly, fill their bellies with delicious food.
