Good morning, I am exhausted.
I think the whole country probably feels the same way. The air feels thinner but heavier, somehow.
As the election continues, I am trying to figure out how to balance my eyes being glued to the TV and my school work. Unfortunately, I am really struggling with getting sources as of now. I do have one restaurant owner who told me he would be thrilled to participate, Joshua Williams Sr. from Papadoo’s Soul Food and BBQ. He and I are supposed to talk later this week and start setting up times soon.
I have also reached out to Jina Yoo, the head chef and brains behind Le Bao. I have done a lot of reading about her and she is very passionate about Asian fusion food and has a lot of culinary endeavors in the area. I am thrilled about the prospect of working with her and will follow up with her tomorrow.
I have also reached out to the tea. of chefs at Barred Owl Butcher and Table to see if they would be interested. I am really hoping that they will respond soon as well.
I am trying to develop ways to alter the project if I determine it is needed. I would be happy to do a deep dive on one chef of food lover, and I have a list of other restaurants I can reach out to as well. I will most likely send those emails out today.
I still feel good about this project, I am just struggling to get sources. Hopefully that will change over the next few days.
