“When Harry met Sally”, a classic for most of us over twenty. The food scenes alone are some of the most memorable and impactful. Of course, we all recall the faked orgasm in the diner, totally rocks! However, no less significant is the time she orders her food with everything on the side, special ordered.
Harry looks at her like she is insane and she does not understand why. A phenomenon I encounter quite often with my clients at Kenmare catering. These clients see a menu before them, it’s long and extensive, but for me, the creator, it’s just suggestions of combinations of ingredients. When I consult and design with these clients, I work diligently to bring out their inner “Sally”.
Ask for what you want the exact way you want it. You are helping me create for your palette. The fact that Harry assessed that Sally is “the worst kind. A person who thinks they are low maintenance when really they are high maintenance” makes us think we are doing something wrong by asking for our food to be served the way we want it.
Of course, we need to back up and realize, Harry and Sally were dining in a highway truck stop diner, not that you can’t find incredible food and culinary talent ever once in a while in these stops, it’s just not their specialty.
Do we feel its okay to ask to have it our way?
