天分、努力、基本功、和說故事的能力

畫面上這碗是叫「extremely spicy noodle」,來自餐廳momofuku,主廚老闆叫David Chung,維吉尼亞州長大的韓裔美國人,在紐約開餐款一炮而紅,現在餐廳、副業佈及全球,生活水平應跟吃蛋白沒兩樣。

這碗超辣麵,至少集合了超嗆小紅辣椒、四川花椒、再加上豆瓣辣椒、乾燥辣椒籽等四種以上的辣椒調味而成。一碗大概加幣13,加稅後約台幣360,附上一杯牛奶解辣。味道的確不錯,香麻也辣,我一口就全身發熱但仍想再來一口、再一口。

跟台灣一碗60元的老虎麵有啥不同?層次感較豐富,下次還想吃一次。

Pork Buns,類台灣割包。

拉麵,靈感來自日本。(他住過日本2、3年)

雞肝醬上面鋪菇類XO醬混蘋果泥,口感跟鵝肝醬差不多意思,價格平民,特別的是做得像木片、也像海苔的薄餅乾。

David Chang在亞洲飲食文化東偷西偷,講正經點叫融會貫通。

但像他搞出名堂的人,很少。

他對做菜肯定有過人天份,因在不同高檔餐廳工作過,學到極致紮實的基本功,且保有小男孩愛冒險的心。

另一個想提的,是最近紅遍亞洲、連續三年被評為全球最佳餐廳noma主廚 René Redzepi,雖然他在鏡頭前龜毛要做沙拉的那顆白草莓熟度,必須「比不熟、再不熟一點的程度」…的樣子有點滑稽,但他找到其它廚師未深耕的領域,專攻特種食材、比如活了200年的蛤仔、某特殊土壤孕育風味了得的大蒜,加上,他很會說故事。

這周四吃完多倫多的momofuku,每晚洗澡就想這些有的沒的。

天分+努力,是脫穎而出的王道,放之任何工作、專業皆準。

兩者都沒,每天去工作就像行屍走肉。(沒被開除,老闆可能是當慈善事業經營)

有天分、不夠努力。(頂多配角水準,常自憐懷才不遇)

很努力但沒天分,只是累壞周圍的人。(這種人,最多)

若能很清楚知道自己的熱情所在,那麼,找個能發揮自己天份的工作,應該不難。

但,多數的人並不知道,自己有什麼天份、也分不清楚什麼叫熱情,更不了怎麼找。

嗯。。。。 40 more words
