Well, according to Carolee Bondurant, previous owner of my local Radford business, and the card she gave me for my 23rd birthday, it was the chicken. Almost 9 years have passed and we all know that the chaos always floats to the top!
These days I am working out of of Chaos on K. Yes, there are new recipes everywhere recently... personally, professionally--everywhere but my kitchen.
While creating just the right filing system in my new home office, I came across a journal which reads on the front:
As I sit in my shoebox, flipping through my 1997 plan for the concept I realize that for me Chaos&Chicken is organic (as all chicken should be) and will continue to change over time. Chaos&Chicken represents me, my passions and my dreams. Chaos&Chicken is a figure of speech, a term of endearment and often a metaphor for this life that is my own. No matter the recipe, the year, the location or the plan-- life always dishes up chaos, some good and some bad-- but when served with a side of chicken (or lamb), shared with colorful characters and good music, it always seems a little more manageable.
