Personal Narrative: Woodberry Kitchen

Satisfactory Essays
Brunch this week was at Woodberry Kitchen. Hard to believe this place has been around over ten years! Chef Spike Gjerde and chef Lou Sumpter are always serving up some some local, seasonal concoctions that folks (including myself) can’t get enough of. In 2015 Gjerde took home a James Beard Foundation award. Sumpter a Maryland native was also recently honored by Eater for up and comers in the food industry under 30.

I’m typically very pleased when I come here although I prefer to go for dinner.

The potted vegetables were awesome, I loved the wood roasted eggplant dip and will be recreating soon. I’m cutting back on dairy, but had to give the crab pot a try and it was worth it l! There was a perfect balance of lump crab meat and cream cheese, delicious!

There was a big debate on scrapple at the table! Where is it most popular (Philadelphia vs Baltimore), should it be thick or thin cut, or should it be avoided altogether. Personally, I love scrapple and thought it was a stable in most Baltimore households. I like my scrapple a little bit thicker than what i was served. It was still somewhat addictive all the flavors were all there, and reminiscent of my childhood when my mother would fix me a scrapple and egg sandwich before school.

How do you like your scrapple?

    As a Chinese-American, my family expected me to help out at the restaurant while maintaining straight A's in school. But, it wasn't easy; every day, I would report to the restaurant after school and immediately start working. Inside the kitchen, I would pack all the orders into aluminum containers, place them into a brown bag, and insert packets of sauces and utensils. Burns and cuts were common due to the terrible and tearable aluminum containers. Outside at the front desk, I would answer the seemingly…

    Personal Narrative The blaring ring of the alarm clock runs through my ears, marking the end of my pleasant six-hour sleep. I’m looking at the time and fumbling my hand next to me, managing to hit the snooze button and relapse back to my sleep. Repeating this several times, I eventually decided to get up, and turned off the alarm. I grabbed the towel lying on top of my chair, and turn around only to sneak a glance at the time. I stumble through the bathroom, flick the light switch brace…
