At the Monteblanco location of El Corralito, there was a great team spirit.
Basque born Chef (manager) Luis Astier (left) with his Sous Chefs...
Yep, preparing good compost substrate is the most important ingredient to success in mushroom growing!
A coffee break was always great for catching up with everything going on in the different areas.
Husband Pieter is 2nd from right, wearing his Monteblanco overall for hygienic reasons, just as I wore my white coat apron (3rd from right).
Left my cap on the table...
Chef Luis Astier was a great manager and also a real hobby Chef; hence that first photo with the Chef's hats.
It was Luis, who installed a coffee break with fresh fruits for his staff!
You can now see my plate with fruits... The 'Chef' is 2nd from left, next to husband Pieter.
Agustín, one of the owners is to Pieter's right.
They sure had some great Lady Chefs on the premises, who prepared a delicious lunch for the staff people and we both got lucky for being part of that!
Speaking the language and managing to pass down a compliment to the Lady Chefs, they learned that my Pieter LOVES arroz con leche (rice pudding) so they saved him some leftover for surprising him next day.
Pieter was smiling from ear to ear.
