Obviously, if you are reading this blog, you love food. You think about it, you read about it, you probably even dream about it. As foodies, we care deeply about our food and where it comes from. We wonder about the farms that produce what we eat. We wonder about the chefs that can create dishes that we only wish we could make ourselves. But how often do we wonder about who is serving our food?  Well, Meet Your Waiter hopes to change all that. Here, we will highlight those unsung heroes of the restaurant biz, without which your food would never get from that brilliant chef in the kitchen all the way to your table. Some things you learn about them may surprise you. Other things you may have had pegged the minute you laid on eyes on them. Either way, meet your waiter this week:

Name: Kirsten Caldwell


Age: 21

Where she works: Sticky Fingerz Rock n’ Roll Chicken Shack


Favorite dish she serves: The Sticky Fingerz Salad, which has fried chicken strips, blue cheese, and pecans.

Best part about waiting tables: Meeting new people. She says, “When people are drinking, they’re always really nice.”


What you may not know: Kirsten is an avid animal lover with a great big heart (and hopefully a great big backyard). She has recently adopted 3 stray dogs.
Her future plans: Kirsten is an art student studying ceramics at the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville. She is taking a much-needed break from school but she plans to return to Fayetteville in the spring to finish up her degree.

If you want your favorite waiter profiled here, leave a comment and let me know where they work and why they are awesome.
