She was working on the project and obviously I had to have a job.

10:48.90

philjstreet

Yeah, yeah.

10:50.22

We had like the fishmonque coming with this palette of you know, like fish right from the sea ah like dropping to us. It was was really good I learned how to cook sous vide. It was like gastronomicmic restaurant so we were doing everything homemade from the du bush to the bread to you know des deserved a really small team but you know it really really completely the opposite opposite of America I was in a me restaurant but America was like really really, really busy was fine dining but was really like.

11:22.11

philjstreet

Right.

11:30.17

Emeline

You know, like like yeah like a lot of covers and so was was really so I kind of switched again and really focused on you know, different flavors trying to be more perfect more defined like. And um, and then the lady from ah from Dubai called me and say oh would you like to to come ah ah to help us out for the opening for um, for her week and I was like I was like yeah so as I spoke to my boss can I take a week and try you know, try this etc and um, went to Dubai. Ah, to super just for the week ah the the opening of the cooking school and yeah it wasn't for me. Um the the Dubai ah I mean the the short experience I had there like wasn't really my personality and was really hot. So I don't think my boxer would have loved that too.

12:09.40

philjstreet

Okay.

12:22.42

Emeline

But it's ah it's ah so then went back I went back in Spain and I was like come out like like I need to I need to change like you know I need to was what I was there one ear and I was I don't know like the the spanish life. It's very parting and very you know. It was not was not for me anymore and I I do love speaking english I must admit I'm very fascinated about these languages. So it's um so I was like okay so went back home and I was like what do I do now like I was like should I go to Singapore you know because there is no quarantine for dogs I was like.

13:00.36

philjstreet

Um, it's all about the dog. Yeah.

13:01.64

Emeline

Like you know so is the is the big you know? Yeah I know and I and I was I was going to term thirty this year so you know was kind of like the big. Yeah, the big number and you're like oh my god I need to make the right decision now. It's no more her. Yeah, it's no more like you know like. Playing around then just trying to have experience I need to build something and my mom was like you know, always listen to your mother. Ah, she's like why don't you go to London I was like ah London is too small. You know it's not like America and she's like I think it did much your personality him mar I was like. Case who I tried you know since Cvs you know, came here for a weekend foreign interviewsters there and um and got a job and actually at the end of may will be 9 years I'm ah I mean this a beautiful country. Ah, and and yeah, so so that's my ah, that's how I arrive in London.

13:49.60

philjstreet

Um, yeah.

13:55.95

Emeline

Ah, so I started as ah so I did downgrade in my position I went ah as a senior sous chef in oban restaurant so in ah in South Kensington um so what's was a good ah was's a good step because.

14:06.26

philjstreet

Yep, yeah yeah, but but.

14:14.10

Emeline

I've learned all about your legislation and obviously coming from different countries. You kind of you know you you need? yeah to listen a bit so it was really really good experience. South sinceky.

14:23.55

philjstreet

That's ah but a fair point actually like I mean you know to? We're kind of just talking that you know very off the cuff here about moving here moving there la la la all that sort of stuff but actually you know it's quite ah, an upheaval. Whatever however, transient you are and however, comfortable. You are with travel and all of these sorts of things to still have this moment whereby you are moving from. Ah, adapt one culture to another but you're living here. It's not like you're just experiencing it for a couple of weeks and being you know, consumed by everything and all around you. You've got to make a life here and so actually that's quite that can be quite a lot of pressure so actually to have the foresight to say well look I'm just gonna I'm gonna take a step back so I can.

14:56.66

Emeline

Um, this this.

15:09.70

philjstreet

Kind of almost ease my way into understanding the the fullness of of what I'm doing here and as you say learning a new legislation I mean the the Uk Public Health is you know it's quite specific.

15:24.26

Emeline

Who.

15:26.60

philjstreet

Um, in it in its approach so you know all of these things where if you'd have gone straight into a head shift. Maybe you would have been setting yourself up for for failure because there's too much to learn. Okay I'll just scrap that I'll add ah but out. But ah.

15:35.91

Emeline

I No I don't think so because Like. Ah, no, no you you know at the end of the day you need to to follow certain and pros procedure when you cook and when you know you've you've been cooking for many Yearss. You know what to do and what not to do you know after it's not solely about like knowing which cutting board you need to use for which.

15:59.68

philjstreet

Yeah.

16:00.57

Emeline

Projects you know it's ah it's um I think is um, yeah I think it it came to you know did disposition came and I was like sometimes it's better to regress to think about the long term and not jumping right away onto you know. I felt that the right at that moment that was the right decision because at the end like I was a head chef in France and I moved to I moved to ah to America I was exec chef I didn't know nothing like nothing at all like ah like ah I arrived there I was completely lost like we don't cook meat like the same way they do you know like.

16:28.32

philjstreet

Right? yeah.

16:38.17

Emeline

They have like a million temp for a stack over there. You know it's ah everything every country is different and to be fair like I moved to madreid I didn't know how to speak Spanishville at all like I was literally like my boss was french so he was ah like when I was placing I was giving him my order at the end of the day you know.

16:45.25

philjstreet

Right? yeah.

16:55.10

Emeline

And then and then after 2 months he's like okay you know how to do it now you need to do it. So then I was so scared to that my pronunciation was not right that ah I was waiting the out of office just to speak to the answer machine. You know to place my order. Yeah, and then and then after I start to get confidence. So it's just.

17:06.54

philjstreet

Oh bless you? yeah.

17:13.66

Emeline

I don't know what comes you know and you need to embrace it and this position came I had other opportunity but I was like this is this is the one. This is a very strong company like they know what they're doing like you know I'm gonna learn you know like the right way and and you know it's giving me a break as well. A bit you know and and try to settle down and um, but yeah, but I could ah I mean you do you are complicated in this country though you it's it's true. You you have a bit complicated but um, yeah so I Don ah I done eight months there and ah, then then then I decided that you know was you know okay cold now I want to be a head chef again and I start to work in a cafe in Aborn Flit River bakery so was completely different of what I um um I was used to do because I was.

17:57.58

philjstreet

Emeline

new belging and twist it in.:

18:52.19

That other cafe as well was some things like really really interesting. So I don't know done that I stayed with them for quite a long time and we opened like a guestroperb as well with a josperovn so once again, another challenge. Never ah, never worked with a jos perovn ah like build different teams. Ah, and yeah, seeing like you know, different things and try to get to 2 to to think about you know how what can work there for different area and anyway and stay there like for about I think 5 years for for 5 Years

19:45.56

22:18.67

Emeline

Um, ah.

22:24.40

philjstreet

The dogs play quite a large part in your life and and's as as they should um but having been on there I've seen a couple of photographs with you on a certain raymon blanc. Um, you're just talking about you know the the people that you meet whilst doing the the role you have I mean is there a nicer man.

22:24.73

Emeline

Yes.

22:33.81

Emeline

Yes.

22:43.60

Emeline

Yeah, yeah, oh I'm like if you stuck me on the subject is just it's just and it's is just wonderful I mean it's give you and you see the thing being French and you know like Mihland Star is not my background is not where I you know.

22:43.52

philjstreet

In the industry than that man.

23:01.71

Emeline

I Grow It's just such a luck to to work with him and his team. They're just absolutely like brilliant people and and Himmo is just I don't know you are an advanced and he still teach you something and you see is so.

23:19.62

philjstreet

Um, yeah.

23:20.71

Emeline

Passionette and this is what our industry is about. It's like he's like he's vibrating you know for foods and and projects and flavors and ah yeah is ah I mean I'm very looking very very okay.

23:32.81

philjstreet

Yeah, but you know the the you say you're lucky but you've kind of you've put yourself into this position because the 1 thing I I picked up from your career story so far the overriding message that I got is that you are and incredibly proactive around. What happens next to you. It's not a question of like you're the one that's made the choice to to go and do this, you're the one. That's then said, right? I want to learn about this and then you go and you you do it or I want to go and move and and you know improve my english so I'm going to go and do that and. So you've kind of had the reins to your life. You know and I'm sure stuff has happened to you along the way where you've had to react to and change and all of that sort of thing but the overriding thing is is that you're here because you've put yourself here. This is not it's not it's not luck your you know your your talent and your drive has gotten you to where you are at this point in time and the fact that you wake up every day you know and you're exactly where you need to be it sounds at this point in time in your life. It's just wonderful. It's just wonderful. We could we could we could leave the podcast there. It's just a lovely.

24:39.53

Emeline

Um, but you don't. Ah, no, but you know ah at the at end of the day We. We've got a skill. It's in our hands. So You know we don't need to carry much. It's it's in our hands so you can This is what's wonderful with this industry. It's.

24:44.97

philjstreet

Wonderful, fluffy happy thing.

24:52.26

philjstreet

Yeah.

25:04.34

Emeline

You can do it everywhere in the world. You know like you can you know and then you learn from from everybody all the time and it's just make you stronger and and like yeah it's you don't need to yeah with one suitcase you just go wherever you want is safe.

25:05.10

philjstreet

Um, yeah.

25:18.60

philjstreet

Yeah, no I mean yeah I mean you don't probably go somewhere with a stack full of Cvs and and hope to get a job. There's probably an easier way to do that these days. But yeah, especially with visas and things like that I would I would imagine but no.

25:22.78

Emeline

And.

25:26.85

Emeline

Um, you know that.

25:36.40

philjstreet

But Also I think the other thing that I picked up was is that you've you've kind of I don't want to say you've ticked things off as you go, but you've gone you've gone somewhere and you've learned something you've gone somewhere else and you've learned something else and you've gone somewhere else and you know and you've got all of these different styles of of cookery. All these different. Ah, styles of restaurant. Ah volume fine dining Gastro Pub Cafe you know, which must bring you into a really a solid grounding for a role like you have now where you've got to kind of explore lots of different things. Um, for lots of different types of businesses again because I would imagine in ah like as ah, an example in a museum you're going to have a cafe but you're probably also going to have a restaurant. Um and so having the knowledge of kind of both how both of these things work.

26:14.67

Emeline

Ever. Ah.

26:31.60

Emeline

It does indeed. Yeah, it's ah and I always been. You know, very curious about different foods like the the one I need to tick in my box. It's ah like Japanese I don't know much about Japanese food I find it very very complex. Um, but yeah, it's ah.

26:31.70

philjstreet

Must serve you? well.

26:41.19

philjstreet

Right.

26:50.97

Emeline

Yeah, you know cooking. It's it's you on ah you on every day you know and it's ah like different different people. You know I remember my my one. My one of my kitchen poter was from Colombia you know and you you cook stuff food and you learn about colombian dishes. You know like. Like when I was in us 1 of my chef was mexican and it actually teached me the right way to make pico de gallo and guacamo. You know it's it's ah and it's and that is that is things that can be. You know, served in a more refined restaurant and more classic places. You know it's ah. The versatility of ah of the different cuisine. They can be. You know, transferred into different style. You know is just um.

27:35.22

philjstreet

Yeah, yeah, and that one that's it's kind of a a never ending um thing as well. I mean the the combinations that we're still learning right? I mean we learn from each other as you say ah your Columbian ah Kitchen porter teaching you.

27:54.25

Emeline

Listen.

27:54.51

philjstreet

You about colombian food I'd I'd love to learn about columbian food. As an example, you know and there there's just there's always something else to learn I'm sure even Raymon Blanc learns new things on a fairly regular basis or maybe not actually I think he knows everything. But anyway yeah.

28:04.59

Emeline

Since she stupid. Is the master of the master.

28:14.43

philjstreet

Absolutely Um, yeah, so well talk to us about your role now then and the types of things that you're that you're covering and um, you mentioned that you're in Stadia and that you're in museums and things like that but give us a kind of snapshot of what you're kind of. Your date. It looks like.

28:32.70

Emeline

So it's been ah I mean recently's been a lot of of work around that new legislation with the calorie. Yeah, you know that new law. Ah like we started on the sixth of April so we worked um we were yeah and yeah I'm good.

28:45.20

philjstreet

That's fun isn't it. So.

28:49.57

Emeline

I am going to reserve my comment right now. Ah.

28:51.95

philjstreet

That's fair. That's fair, yes, but they' say that this is not a political podcast. So I'm not Goingnna I'm not going to take you to that route.

28:53.77

Emeline

Ah, yeah, so what was a lot of work ones. Obviously it's reacting a lot with ah different issue. We've got with the supply. You know like you know, ah all the problem around the world like Brexit and you can exter cetera so that's just. Making for all of us things a bit more difficult and recruitment, etc, etc. But um, we've got wonderful ah project that coming up right now. So so they so live as invested into a farm and we are growing our own vegetables.

29:27.22

philjstreet

Ah, nice.

29:29.34

Emeline

Ah, so it's cool. Yes, so it's um, it's called full circlele farm they there is the this um the charity attached to it is the garden army and it's ah a regimegenerater farm. So the the gentleman and farmer of Tom is just such a wonderful man. And ah e e e yeah, the to god it's like to grow your vegetable but it's kind of like polongge like like the the soil will not be used. You see what I'm in I don't know how to explain it. Um.

29:58.63

philjstreet

Um, yeah.

30:02.95

Emeline

Yeah, it's legenderd itself you know because you're doing the right thing. So for example, he was telling us that it's going to get another piece of land and it's going to put like some pork you know and then ah like the like the fact that the pork's going to be walking on that ground. It's going to you know, create something onto the subbo I'm not ah I'm not.

30:19.10

philjstreet

I I think met I think I've met farmer Tom did I think did farmer Tom was he involved in ah the hotel birch in hertfordshire. Yeah because I went there and did ah he does.

30:22.46

Emeline

And expect did you did you.

30:32.39

Emeline

I Think so yeah I think so.

30:38.99

philjstreet

Or he certainly used to I don't know if he's even still there but the um he used to do these talks around what they were trying to do with the land and there they would have ah they would set up a ah ah place for the for the pigs to work the land.

30:43.77

Emeline

Ah.

30:49.88

Emeline

Um, but.

30:53.34

philjstreet

Um, and then when they're done there. They move them onto the next piece of land and they bring in the chickens then who do their thing with the land and then do that's at that point you start to plant and then you effectively recycle all of this all all over again and um I was a.

30:57.96

Emeline

Um.

31:06.75

Emeline

Yeah, yeah.

31:12.42

philjstreet

Totally hooked on that because you know this is one of the things that that nobody ever used to talk about but more and more people are talking about now is regenerative farming right and to get a ah big company like sudexo live behind something like that I think's exactly what.

31:19.70

Emeline

Are.

31:32.14

philjstreet

It needs it needs it needs big business to to take hold and not just be. You know, ah taking advantage of the land all the time which is you know for the the last few years we've seen that I think the top soil levels are. You know at all time low and we can't grow things properly if there's no topsoil and all of these things. So It's wonderful news for me that a big business is is getting behind something like this.

31:49.81

Emeline

Um, is it.

31:56.89

Emeline

Yeah, no, it's ah it's ah it's great and it's not only this is it like you know we're gonna we're gonna learn more about vegetables. We're gonna we're gonna go there and we're gonna help him which is you know when I live in London and more. Um. You know I live southlandone. It's it's you know we've got a lot of park and it's nice but I remember like when I visited his farm it. Um, it just one morning it kind ofitized me like I was in a you know.

32:25.81

philjstreet

Yeah I can imagine.

32:29.83

Emeline

Yeah, was like you know so peaceful and dogs running grabbing you know apples and you know playing around and you know you you got your hunter and you you know it was a bit raining but just just the way it showed you know and ah and I felt like pumped up. You know I was like whoa and you know for mental health. It's so good.

32:47.29

philjstreet

Yeah.

32:49.30

Emeline

You know, like just you know like we are. We're gonna organize like you know for our teams like some some days where we're gonna go there. We're gonna help him Out. We're gonna We're gonna make a little picnic. We're gonna learn ah more about vegetable where it's coming from what you know like seasonalities. Obviously you very like key into our philosophy like it's key key key. And ah, and yeah, and then you know that is' seeing Sometimes you're very surprised like how how does it grow is it coming coming from a tree is it coming from the soil like you know how are like I mean pineapple is it not crazy like you know like you there is things like sometimes you you you know you're like oh what is it? Oh yeah, because it it.

33:15.10

philjstreet

Um, yeah.

33:28.45

Emeline

Yeah I mean I found that fascinating and I'm really really looking forward to it and and obviously we able to tell him like you know what we want and we're going to use those vegetables to create our menus so is just super cool. Really really super cool.

33:37.97

philjstreet

Fantastic, Yeah, absolutely yeah and I can imagine as a chef as well like that's yeah as you say just revitalized. It's like oh yes and I'm going to literally much like the scenario whereby you've got a fishmonger.

33:56.88

Emeline

Ah.

33:57.29

philjstreet

Delivering fresh fish to you that that was caught that morning Now you're going to be able like chop off up pineapple or pepper or whatever. Yeah I don't know can we grow pineapples in this country. No no yeah, not.

34:07.48

Emeline

I don't think so we can ask some? Ah yeah, but no, that's ah so that's cool. So that's one. Ah wonderful project. We've got and second one is um, ah suic soliva has created um.

34:14.11

philjstreet

Nothing is off the table with Tom at.

34:26.46

Emeline

Ah, scholarship and aronship with ah Remon Blanc ah yeah so that we're gonna have like about six eight ah like like young chefs who will be able with heat training to develop their skills in so in our vens that we've got in London and they're gonna have the chance.

34:28.15

philjstreet

Brilliant.

34:45.88

Emeline

The chance to go work two months at the manoir. Yeah, so it's ah I know I said the same as can I so this ah this is this is a wonderful opportunity because they will be able.

34:47.77

philjstreet

Um, Wow where where do I sign up. Ah.

35:02.67

Emeline

So they're going to do two months in ah each of our vens in London they will be able to support us for ah Jar Dan Bla in Chei flower show http://whileaasco once again which is seems you see when we go back to it I remember my my first royal like I've never you know done maure events. Like that way like that volume like you know you you do? Yeah, you do big weddings and stuff but you like and even after like 20 years working in this industry was like oh my god you know it's like mind blowing the organization behind it and like you know, like the the. You you know there is this kind of positive bubble like you go there and you just lift it up by everybody and it's um, it's just yeah, yeah, so they will be able to to be part of that and ah and I'm very very very excited about it like. We're gonna have some days out as well like show show them like you know barro market make them try some projects going to the farm. So they're gonna have an amazing year amazing air.

36:07.99

philjstreet

Fantastic, Yeah, absolutely and you know it's one of the things that I think we can do as an industry to really turn the tide of attracting more people in is let's give them moments of inspiration. Let's inspire them to come into the to the industry you know. Let let it not just be about getting a job. You know,? let's let's give them the opportunity. There's lots of I've had the the I suppose the privilege whilst doing this podcast of talking to lots of people who've got lots of different little things going and with enough little things going on. You know.

36:43.48

Emeline

Um, visit.

36:46.21

philjstreet

In 5 years time we'll look back at this time and go well god you remember that time we had that recruitment problem. Um you know, but um, um, but it needs everyone to step up and it's great to hear that you guys are stepping up as well. With ah you know who's not going to be inspired by spending.

36:51.87

Emeline

Um, yeah.

37:05.79

philjstreet

Time with Mr Blanc but also you know is there any better training than actually live training getting out into the venues and learning about um ways and means and your the good moments. The bad moments. Everything.

37:16.77

Emeline

Yeah, the the exactly the you know the this industry like you know it's like it's it's it's backed the same when you learn the language hour to I learn english I think I start to learn english I was like 8 you know in friends they start to you know, give you a class once in a while and. So I arrive in America I ah know how to say a word you know the best is just being. You know your hands into it you you will learn way more after 1 year going into different venues seeing different kind of food like like Evans.

37:39.36

philjstreet

Um, yeah, yeah.

37:54.33

Emeline

Like the organization be be be behind maure Evans then going talk fight dining. You know, like fine fine dining like excellence even you know like the manu ca con and then yeah, we're working on you know, like the precision you know it's ah you will learn way more. Than than you know going to school I mean school is important. Don't take me wrong. It's you know it's giving you this military and you know like it's important to learn about different things exactly but in time of our work you our industry? yeah.

38:16.71

philjstreet

Yeah, a grounding. Okay.

38:27.95

Emeline

Try it out. You know you passionate you you eager to to learn different things you you want to be part of ah like a family because at the end of the day this industry there is a special bond feel. You know it's um I mean you spend more time with your colleagues that you're spending with your friends or your family.

38:44.39

philjstreet

Yeah.

38:46.42

Emeline

So there is this kind of like like brotherhood and and ah yeah, it's it's it's it's a team but it's deeper than ah than a team. It's ah yeah.

38:55.70

philjstreet

Yeah, no know it's family is what it is what it's what it becomes and that sounds very whimsical to say that but and in the end you know I count. It's been a long time since I've been anywhere near operations but I count back the the number of my mates that I'm still in contact with.

39:02.88

Emeline

Um.

39:15.25

philjstreet

Today far out ways you know from from that period when I was an operator you know because you kind of you live and die together. You know you, you know you share the celebrations but you share the the times where it all goes horribly wrong as well and and you actually the times where it goes horrible.

39:17.80

Emeline

Um. Um.

39:29.50

Emeline

Um.

39:34.18

philjstreet

Horribly wrong are always going to happen. Um, and you actually learn more about each other in these moments I think than than you do when? everything's lovely and easy. Um, and um, you know and and I think critically for that it feels like leadership understand or understands this now.

39:42.17

Emeline

That.

39:52.00

Emeline

Hurt.

39:53.72

philjstreet

As well. You know that there's um I know that we've historically had you know culture issues. Um, but the the change in the um and the kitchen space in the last few years you know you can feel. There's more people actually really care about the whole process. The human is part of that process. And you build such as you say such amazing bonds with people. Um because you're just you know you're sharing so much together.

40:19.16

Emeline

Yeah, it's it needs the pressure. You know it's it's such um, you always feel. Ah, you know when you are at the pass and it's really funny I was talking with um with um our divisional exec chef last week and he finished his she he gave me a bursts. He was like oh I'm mean I was at the pass and I was like as like it's good. Isn't it as like this this you know like you've got that tinker in your stomach and you feel like you are in the marix movie. You know it's like dot da da check on and this and that and and he's like he's like it's you know I don't know it. Likes you and you know this is why we do this job because we worked all day all afternoon all night you know we cook different food and then there is this peak moment where you know you achieve something. It's not like you know you've got like a six months project now that that project is every lunch every dinner. Every opportunity every breakfast that you do you know? It's this and then it just takescks you and you've got that kind of like trance. You don't feel anything like you can burn yourself. Don't don't feel it. You know you catch yourself? no no no you you like oh yeah go bum you know like you just iron man you know at that moment.

41:21.23

philjstreet

Yeah, yeah.

41:27.51

philjstreet

Um, yeah.

41:29.63

Emeline

And it just and you float and then there is you know I mean this is another things I kind of vlog but you know the energy you know I think we we all have vibration you know in our body. We all related with one and the other you know and and it's when you are had the past and everyone is just so for confused there is this. You know it's like it's floating then you know when we have one goal you know it's like send those dishes. You know the best we can and it's yeah, but he he told me that last week and I'm like ah like it always texts me. You know this you could you could cry you could You could have um, a top of tears.

41:56.41

philjstreet

Yeah.

42:02.57

philjstreet

Yeah.

42:08.62

Emeline

42:10.66

philjstreet

Yeah, now it's great. It's great to see Absolutely is and yeah, it makes me feel like I want to work for you because you're you know to work for people who show the passion and show the care in what they do. It's you know it's what it's all about you know we need more people like that. Ah, throughout the industry and every single facet. Um, you know once we've got that foundation and play then everything else takes care of itself. Um, yeah God We went deep then didn't we that was um, that's great. Um, but we do go deep on this podcast from time to time.

42:37.12

Emeline

Her for fifth.

42:47.40

philjstreet

Just from time to time. So let's um, let's talk very quickly about your your Instagram page foodie and pause so dogs and food basically are your 2 things. Yeah absolutely and um.

42:53.60

Emeline

Yes.

42:58.48

Emeline

Yeah, my my 2 thing. Yeah.

43:05.85

philjstreet

I'm going to suggest that probably the dogs are more important than the food. Ultimately.

43:08.60

Emeline

Yeah I have to admit I'm ah I'm a big massive dog lover. Ah like I had the the most wonderful boxer who traveled with me. Ah.

43:18.41

philjstreet

Um, yeah.

43:21.70

Emeline

Yeah, in ah in ah in us and in in Spain and in in London and she was ah a french a french dog which actually got in a restaurant that was working ah I was a yeah yeah I was working there and they they had I remember I was once again because in France at the time it was ah like you know you just walk by with a Tv.

43:29.63

philjstreet

Um, okay.

43:40.91

Emeline

And you're like oh are you looking for? So you know for somebody so I arrive in mont perier and was this restaurant with called lu 6 and then a knock by and I had those 2 big massive boxer coming at me and the boss was like like ah I was a oh sorry, don't worry we did did they know is nice. So zaka right? drop my cv and I was so chef there and. And I fell in love ah with ah with this boxer and solo he was called and the owners met babies. Um I don't know how you say in english like they met babies with um yes and the the wait for us.

44:09.71

philjstreet

Yeah, they got little poppies.

44:17.40

Emeline

Ah, who was working there was getting married and the the owners were like okay we're going to offer you one of the puppies and she was like okay we didn't come with me come with me and ah and ah, she's like I'm going to go go pick um pick my baby and I was like oh no no no no I'm like if I'm coming. They're too cute because I really had a special affection for solo. Like really really really and ah and then I'm like okay I'm coming and then I opened the door and the the owner opened the door and and then I saw daya coming up and she was exactly like her father like the same color. The other one were more clear but she was exactly like that and I just. Instantly fell in love. And yes, I'm working in ah in a busy industry. Yes, it's not easy to travel with a dog but but yeah you found ways around it and she's been with me for ah she was with me for 12 years and a half and yeah the love of my life.

45:11.20

philjstreet

Yeah, Bless Yeah general your point there about about it not being easy. Life's not easy right? and it' ah and it shouldn't be um, you know we've got to stop being scared of stuff not being easy.

45:13.13

Emeline

The yeah the the best. Yeah.

45:26.30

Emeline

Um.

45:27.76

philjstreet

Um, you know and and build yourself up to be able to cope with not easy. Um, it's a much better place to be than running away from not easy Anyway, that's another runt.

45:30.91

Emeline

Um, better.

45:36.88

Emeline

Yeah, and I've thought it it. Yeah, but after it's being straightforward. You know it's like you you know Um, when I moved to us I said I've got my dogs and actually my my bosses had dogs and I said ah but leukemia I had my flat in the front of the restaurant. But I so I stilled it right away I was like ah. I would need to take her for a walk. She would need to be. You know, entertained and ah and yeah and it it just worked. You know like even even in London you you know you like okay like right away when you you pass an interview like I have a dog you know like ah like I'm not going to go home and take a nap.

46:00.17

philjstreet

Um, yeah.

46:12.12

Emeline

But you know I do need ah you know to organize myself and making sure that you know she's well looked after but yeah, and then ah now. Ah, once again, another ah so she she? ah you know had a wonderful life 10 passed to her last year um

46:15.88

philjstreet

Yeah.

46:25.56

philjstreet

I bless.

46:29.20

Emeline

And and then Lily and lola came into our lives so it's too ah too little french bulldog ah completely crazy. Ah yeah, so that was another one as well. Ah, like you know like go back to the puppy life because everyone thinks puppies are wonderful. They are they are wonderful but oh my god they they heart they? Yeah yeah, you got a big girl.

46:48.75

philjstreet

Or I know I know. Yes, yeah, we had a beagle from from pop and we did the same thing we you know an opportunity presented itself and and we set up Well'll just go and we'll go and have a look at the at the puppy and but you know we're not we're not ready you know we've we've got to get some a few things in our role first and you know back then? um, my wife was commuting into London every day I was in and out of London 2 3 4 Times a week and so it wasn't it wasn't right and then of course we went there and oh my god.

47:25.79

Emeline

Yeah, met bip. Yeah.

47:27.50

philjstreet

Have to have this little thing. Um I think that the dog chooses you though, right? Ah well you chose because of the the heritage of the of the father etc. But yeah, our little one came straight over to us and we were like oh God Well that's it then we're going to have to make some changes in our life. Um.

47:43.83

Emeline

Yet.

47:46.57

philjstreet

And I don't regret it for a second but you're right? it was um, nobody really fully explained how difficult that first couple of weeks would be um, in terms of yeah well speak because we we actually ended up having to seek help because we were at the point of okay, we're not.

47:54.80

Emeline

Upon a couple of weeks ah ah

48:06.21

philjstreet

I don't want to send the dog down the wrong path by by ah doing discipline in the wrong way or whatever so we had to bring in somebody who knew what they're talking about. They gave us 1 technique which changed everything and it was um, you had a we had a real bitey.

48:06.72

Emeline

Um, ah.

48:16.75

Emeline

Tell me tell me tell me what is the tip.

48:24.19

philjstreet

Poppy so she just wanted to bite everything you get her off 1 thing by moving or this is not really hospitality is it. But anyway um I don't I don't care. Um, and um, you move, um her off biting your arm by dangling a toy. She bites the toy.

48:24.46

Emeline

Um, for that.

48:38.66

Emeline

For her.

48:42.40

philjstreet

Then gets bored to that within 10 seconds starts biting you again and we just couldn't figure out how to get get her to stop biting things and this um lady came in and she said you you have to create a warning word and then um, an hour warning word was careful and so because they start associating. Words with that and then um, if she continues to bite which she obviously will for the first few times you say too bad and then you take her to the puppy pen and you isolate her and you have to hear all the screaming and the you know the you know it's heart wrenching but you've got to fight through it.

49:12.39

Emeline

Um.

49:18.40

Emeline

Yes.

49:21.97

philjstreet

And then um I was literally in the space of when that lady was in our house for an hour the dog got it Bella she she got it like within 3 goes she was like biting, biting careful and then she went oh okay, like that and we were like. Oh my god she was the dog whisperer and um and it changed it changed the game completely and and we've we're on the byproduct of all of that is is that we've actually got a dog now who and we didn't have to train not to snatch. Or you know she doesn't when she if she's playing and she gets a little bit riled up. She's still whenever there's human contact involved. It's such a little dainty. You know it's just ah, but they need work right? That's the that's the thing. Um.

50:00.40

Emeline

Um, and.

50:06.49

Emeline

Um. Yeah, they do, but theyre pure. You know that's what is good and you know you you you finish? Ah you finish your day and you just open the door and they're just like you know it' ah it bring you it bring you down and the thing you see 1 thing I used to.

50:15.91

philjstreet

Yeah.

50:22.37

philjstreet

Yeah.

50:30.80

Emeline

Bring work with me at home like not physical work. But my mind you knows who either you you annoyed because you messed up a recipe or you had a bad service or you know you just like it's not you know, better better better and I always you know and you come home and then you're like.

50:33.70

philjstreet

Yeah, yeah.

50:46.74

Emeline

You know you're talking with your partner and your car and this and dad and bla Blah blah and then I start to see that my dog was really agitated and then because they actually absorb emotion and the pickup. Ah, and I I worked on my myself because I I got my dog.

50:53.90

philjstreet

Um, right.

51:03.25

Emeline

Quite young I had my dog when I was first head Chef Ah so imagine you know like it's and I've learned how to try to control my emotion and then yeah, the the walk or like the Jona the commute for.

51:05.19

philjstreet

Um.
