Everyone is really nice here, it’s a bit of a different way of life. They have a sweet linen service at De Kas, nice whites, pants and aprons. It’s all so forgien to you when they show you around on your first day. Get changed here, this is this, this is that. It’s so bright, and the servers serve the cooks all day. You never get thirsty because servers are breezing by giving you glasses of ice water, during the afternoon break they bring us out drinks while we sit in the garden. They always want to know if you want coffee or tea. The chef is really zen and holistic and he makes supper healthy and delicious staff meals, you walk out to the back garden and a long table is set with waters poured for everyone and staff meal on platters family style down the table. When we finish eating the servers get up and clear the plates and then serve tea and espresso. The tea is in these clear pots and is just either mint or verbena cut from the garden glowing green. The cooks all smoke and there is a nice break before service. For a snack the chef will cut up fresh vegitables from the greenhouse, he said that one of the things he brought to De Kas is to make it more social. It’s a beautiful life for them.
