"Are you hungry the way I used to be?
"When I was a culinary student, I was always hungry and thought people will need to eat, too. They will always need me here for that and I’d always have a job because of that. I wrote and travelled, too. These were a few of the things I needed, things I was hungry for. But culinary school was a debt to society. I worked full-time as a hospital cook for years, sometimes shutting down two kitchens in what would be a fifteen hour day on my feet, including the sixty minute commute to the community college.
"I'm sorry. You’re hungry. I mean, are you hungry enough for what I can make you?"
Christopher Bowen is the author of the chapbook We Were Giants and the novella When I Return to You, I Will Be Unfed. Although he's travelled and spoken throughout the U.S., Cleveland was and will always be home.
