Island Kitchen Brigade

The old adage is "If you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen."

But in Jake's  case, it drove him to a kitchen.  

Looks like Jake has left one island for another.

Several tweets have place Jake in Martha's Vineyard and jumping on the line of the cooking crew at Beach Plum Inn in Menemsha.

And how does Jake just grab a chef coat and jump in?  Well when the executive chef is your best friend, it helps.

While most of us would daydream about being famous and not working, Jake seems to be the opposite. And we know from past interviews this isn't the first time Jake has found his way to the back of the house and on the line.  And for Jake cooking is relaxing.  It sounds like this is his idea of vacation. 

Although a week of high temps and high humidity and spending in a hot busy kitchen would not be a vacation for most. 

It is nice to see him heading back to MV to share the holiday with friends (and family).  The island has special memories and it is a homecoming in a way.  It's been a while since it's been public about him being back on the Vineyard. Sure that this visit will no doubt be just as special of a memory.  Wonder if Jake will go catch the 4th of July parade in Edgartown?   

Keep your eyes and ears open to see if Jake shows up to help out with the Farmer's Market this weekend or if he pops up at the Chilmark Flea Market.  Or maybe on a snack run at the Chilmark Store.

Anyone having or going to a cookout tomorrow?

Can hear the late night pre-4th fireworks from one of the local clubs.

Happy 4th of July to all my U.S. friends, it's your day to ring the bells and wave the flag proudly. It's been a good year for LGBT issues and things are getting better in the fight for full rights for all people.

Happy 237th Birthday

For the land of the free and the home of the brave.
