Interview with Krista Kern Desjarlais

Find Eat Drink has published an interview with Krista Kern Desjarlais, the chef and owner of Bresca.

What are the elements that make you say “that was a great night” in the restaurant business?
A great night is when the total ‘vibe’ is present. The guests, music and the flow of the kitchen are in synch. My sous chef and I will put out as many as 160 plates in one night and if the dining room feels relaxed and chatty and the orders are coming in smoothly, then we can execute at a steady pace. What could feel overwhelming for just two cooks, becomes a positive flow of energy….i.e., a great night.
