The wise food-critic works hard all day and all night
and today, she’s arriving to see our small, new joint.
Smelling bitter gouda, will she fancythe new
pungent cheese?Should she taste the delicate soups that
we have boiled for such a long, long exhausting time?
Because she influences all the frequent guests that
we still want to receive.
With each hour and every passing minute, taking a deep
breath and exhaling in and out, she comes into
my restaurant. Happy and with such enthusiasm.
Drinking wine and munching on flatbread, she flashes
a large beaming grin at me. A good night to remember.
