 h1. Dear readers,
 Often this past summer, when our daughter returned home from her front-of-the-house restaurant job, she regaled us with details about the food she'd seen that night. She told us about the specials, how [/columns/frontburner "the chef"] showcased various kinds of local produce, what friends ordered when they showed up to dine. But the dishes she enjoyed talking about most were those that she herself had eaten — that someone in the kitchen had whipped up for her as she finished her shift. 

 Books about staff meals abound; two we've recently enjoyed are Off the Menu and Family Table. They're filled with recipes that home cooks can readily tackle but that have a chef's flair. Take the recipe for Couscous with Carrot Juice from Family Table, which dresses up a pretty basic side and makes it memorable. Fried Farro with Dark Greens, from Off the Menu, spins one of our favorite substitutes for rice in a whole new direction.

 People in a few professions get to eat on the job (think firefighters or politicians). But restaurant workers who work at places that serve them soulful food may have it best of all.
