Worker Spotlight: Francis

What do you do at Black Star Co-op?

I work in the kitchen doing kitchen things—making awesome food with great people. It doesn’t get better than that. 

Where are you from? 

South, TX. More specifically Brownsville/South Padre.

What is your favorite dish on our menu? 

Cliche, but I don’t have a favorite. I love all of our food equally… Who am I kidding? Hands down our roast chicken. That crisp golden brown skin, those juicy sautéed seasonal veggies, and our grits!

Favorite late night drunk snack?

Drunk mac! A mid rare beef patty covered in delicious mac-n cheese, topped with fried onions and crispy bacon. What more could you want? 

If  you were MATT DAMON stranded alone on Mars, would you really want to come back to earth? 

Depends Really. If I was waiting on my impending doom while stranded, I would much rather come back. Otherwise, you can call me the Emperor of Mars. 

How do you feel about water privatization? 

It’s not cool. Water should be free. Duh. 

How well would the BSC kitchen perform in a local relay race?

Given the fact that we work harder than any other kitchen, I would say that we’re golden. I mean, the co-op already took the gold at GABF. Who knows what the kitchen can do!?

What are you going to be for Halloween? 

Still haven’t decided. Lots of options maybe something crazy, or I’ll just pair something up with my girlfriend. Who knows?
