Raising the curtain
The curtain is raised just before dinner, and everything has to be perfect backstage. We have gathered in a huddle – once again – to assign tasks, refresh the name of dishes in our head, and receive last-minute information from the chef. A last rehearsal before the ball kicks off, a never-ending pirouette from the kitchen to the tables. And as the napkin lies, crumpled, on the table and the footsteps of the last guests leave the room, we finally have time to feel the effort, a sweet release banishing all tensions. Another night under the belt!
