After almost two years, I am leaving Tipsy Cow. I have been hired on as the kitchen manager at the Hop House in Redmond. It's a great little gastropub with over 100 beers on tap and a great comfort food menu. I'll be starting this Friday, and familiarizing myself with the kitchen and staff. This is a huge move for me, and the next step in my career.

Oh yeah, I graduated from Culinary School. Waiting on my diploma.

:thumbsup2: :thumbsup2:

Congrats, Reid.

You'd better have some good pics and food stories from the new place, though. I've been spoiled looking at that Tipsy Cow food....

Well, it's been a hectic and interesting first week and a half at Hop House. We're looking at expanding/updating our menu, and I'm trying to bring the kitchen up to my admittedly high standards.

Only a couple of pictures so far, here's our Margherita Flatbread. We use naan, glaze it with olive oil and top it with mozzarella cheese, roma tomatoes and fresh basil chiffonade. We also do a couple other varieties of flatbread, including Chicken Alfredo, Goat Cheese, and Portobello Mushroom.

Image


This is our Turkey Pub Club sandwich. Sourdough bread with pesto aioli, spring mix greens, roma tomatoes, turkey, provolone cheese and bacon.

Image

I'll put up some more pictures when I take them.

Also, we are currently seeking motivated and dependable line cooks, prep cooks, and dishwashers. If you or someone you know fits that bill, and doesn't mind working for this crazy suave bastard, shoot me a PM!

Holy shit, it's been so long since I posted in this thread that it was halfway down the second page of the subforum! Bad Captain, very bad Captain.

Since last I posted, I left Hop House, as some of you may know. Being in charge of the kitchen was fun, but dealing with the owner left me very frustrated, and the commute from Gold Bar was killing me.

I'm now cooking at the Route 2 Taproom in Monroe. I'm not the "kitchen manager" there, but it's great to be cooking real food again, and so far (after about a month) I seem to be working with a great team.

Chef Eddie Ray Chapter cut his teeth cooking on fishing boats in Alaska, he now owns several boats himself, and cooks at the Taproom because he wants to, not because he needs to. He helped open Bubba's Roadhouse in Sultan, and designed their kitchen. He's a surly sonofa-so-and-so, but he's a great guy, and I'm learning a lot from him.

Picture time? Picture time.

Pulled pork tacos, pulled pork smoked in house with slaw, choice of BBQ sauce (Sweet BBQ shown here), and red onion
Image



Pulled pork sandwich, pork, slaw, choice of sauce. Shown here with Taproom Fries. We have regular freezer fries if you want, but you don't want those, do you?
Image



Famous Taproom Tots. Tater tots, covered in pork and shredded cheese, then smothered in BBQ sauce.
Image

I'm realizing now that all the pictures I've taken have been pulled pork related products..... But hey, here's a picture of a brisket being cut up to grind for burger patties! That's right, we make our burgers with brisket.... and some chuck.

I figured they might want some pointers about how to set up their kitchen there. :bigsmile: :ROFLMAO:

All joking aside, I thought you might find it interesting. And there are a few ideas in there that I just might work into my own new kitchen. :bigsmile:

Bacon Aioli Burger. Our bacon aioli contains 2 strips of bacon in every 2 oz. We use about 4 oz on each burger. Brisket/chuck burger ground in house, comes with pepperjack cheese and three onion rings.

Valentine's Day special: Volcano Boar Shanks.

Wild boar shanks braised to fork-tenderness, seated on a bed of garlic mashed potatoes and covered in a wine sauce. Came with Brussels sprouts. Man, oh man this shit was good...
