How Come They Didn't Mention The Pastry Assistant Or The Dish People?
The Washington Times ran an article on the waitstaff at the Bread Loaf Writers' Conference. Did anybody mention the kitchen crew? Nooooo, they did not. What would those waiters have to serve those editors, agents, and literary muckitiemucks without the Bread Loaf kitchen crew, on which the Gauthier family served for two and a half generations? (I say a half because my cousins aren't a whole generation younger than I am.) Nothing! Would anyone pay any attention to their poems and first drafts of the Great American Novel then? I think not.
