World of Warcraft Cooking Guide: Herb Baked Egg

Mmmm breakfast.  Of course, breakfast isn't just for the morning, it's good any time. And Eggs are one of the greatest foods for how well they pair with so much.  Baked eggs, also called Shirred Eggs, are a great way to do a lot of eggs for a number of people, seeing as how they are put in the oven.   So, with no further ado, the next World of Warcraft Recipe in my list.

Update on the Life of the Crimson Coat Chef

So, a little while ago I posted that I had recently taken on my first job as a Sous Chef.
I'm still excited by this!
Now, some of you might not know what it is that a Sous Chef does. And honestly, it does differ from location to location.  There's this thing called Brigade de Cuisine, the fancy French title for the kitchen hierarchy, which for those of you who like to be able to answer trivial pursuit questions, was developed by Auguste Escoffier.
If you really want to know all about it, follow this link to Escoffier On Line
The Brigade system is what brings discipline and organization to a kitchen.
And in this system, the Sous Chef, is basically the Executive Chef's right hand.  I knew I was a natural for this role a long time ago. The perfect Sous Chef is able to anticipate what the Chef is going to need. They can fill in in a snap, they can take orders, but they can still lead.
Now in our kitchen, there's only the two of us with occasional helpers. But I'm perfectly alright with this.

So here I am, working away on so many June Weddings that my head is ready to spin, but I'm still thinking of my little project here on the Crimson Coat Chef.
Then inspiration strikes!
