Well, I realize by posting this I'm actually confessing a guilty pleasure...that of my love for reality tv's Hell's Kitchen with Chef Gordon Ramsay.
I have a great job in a great industry and have had the chance to experience more than once what is, forks-down, one of the best ski resorts for dining and nightlife--Whistler. (Oh, and they ski there too!)
But I do have to admit a bit of envy for those Hell's Kitchen contestants. Why? Well, because they are competing for a truly incredible prize--a head chef position at Araxi, one of Whistler's best known restaurants.
A sweet prize, for sure...but consider too that Whistler is playing host to the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games, which the Hell's Kitchen winner will have a front row seat for, and now you'll know why I'm green with envy, just like an undercooked brussel sprout. :o)
