The little black pearls pop like starbursts between my teeth, each sending a salty hit into the creamy, crispy, fluffy mix.

Chef Eduard Xatruch of Disfrutar in Barcelona likes to call this dish “the best sandwich in the world.” I choose to fondly remember it as a fried pillow of joy sent from heaven to save my tastebuds from yet another plate of patatas bravas.

Nutrition expert can help save your life

Forty years ago, with a bachelor’s degree in sociology and few job opportunities, I realized it was time to reevaluate where my professional passion was and whether could I make a living following the dream. As a child I spent weekends working in my father’s deli, making thick roast beef sandwiches and trying my best to slice a thin sliver of lox. I also saw my father suffer most of his life with ulcers, ultimately getting half his stomach removed. It seemed the study of nutrition would combine my love of food with the tools to help people with digestive disorders.

Moira is by far the best recruiter I have ever worked with. She goes beyond what’s expected of her, not only finding the perfect fit for both the candidate and the employer, but also making sure the candidate feels comfortable throughout the interview process. She was always up front with information and gave me tips on how to communicate with each person I interviewed with. She truly cares about the candidate and the employer and what’s best for each, not just filling a position and moving on.

I have known Moira McGrath since 1993. She is a true professional with a vast knowledge of the Food and Beverage industry. She is approachable, honest, trustworthy and a true pleasure to work with. She has placed me in two excellent roles and I am grateful for her “partnership” in the process.
