Chef John’s Taking Another Break!

The recent break I took over the Thanksgiving holiday was the first time in six years that I’d gone a whole week without posting a video. Well, since everyone was so understanding, and seemed genuinely happy that I was taking a vacation, I’ve decided to take another one.

That’s right, it seems as though I have a few more days of vacation time to use up, and it’s either take them before the end of the year, or risk a terse email from Human Resources. 

This actually works out perfectly, since I’m flying back east to spend the Christmas holiday with my family. My hope is that you’re all be so busy eating, drinking, and of course, shopping, that you’ll hardly notice I’m gone.

By the way, I know I’ve mentioned heading back to New York many times, but I’m not sure if I’ve ever specified exactly where. Here’s a map with good ol’ Machester, NY pinned for all to see. You’re welcome, stalkers. Anyway, I hope you all have a great week, and I promise this will be the last vacation I take this year.

We were practically neighbors! We lived in Horseheads and then in Corning for many years as my hubby worked for Corning, Inc., which originally was Corning Glass Works. I earned by Masters at Elmira College and we loved visiting the Finger Lakes and Ithaca.

Best of the holiday season to you and your family, Chef John! I have to admit that I am feeling rather selfish! Please come back soon! I really miss your videos!

Chef John,

I wish you have the best holidays and a wonderful year ahead.

I discovered your youtube channel this year, and let me tell you, my life hasn't been the same since!

Enjoy your vacation, and come back soon :)

Alex said...

You should at least provide some regional cuisine vids when you go back home. Be it just an information video on beef on weck or whatever, don't waste the opportunity. Safe travels, looking forward to your next video.

Hoping you enjoyed your vacation and family time, we need you full of energy and quips when you get back. I live not far from where you are, in Seneca Falls. Unfortunately you are here with the plentiful rain. It was pretty a few days ago with the snow. Anyway, as you say "ENJOY", but get back to work soon!
