Today was my last day of school. While in the moment school seemed to take forever to get through, it actually did fly by now that I look back! We spent the last two weeks in the classroom developing menus, costing out recipes, mock interviewing, updating resumes, and taking a few field trips. On the final two days of class, we were back in the kitchen preparing items for the final buffet. A couple of pictures of what I made:
Yummy...pate a choux filled with diplomat cream.
I also assisted in making rolled truffles in three different flavors and some lemon wafer cookies drizzled with a lemon glaze. Everyone was working diligently to get their items preparted and Chef Natalie was there to support us all the way. She was a fantastic instructor for our final two weeks of class and I could not have asked for a better person to finish out the program. Thank you chef Natalie (you still owe me that secret spicy pasta sauce recipe!). And now...on to the next chapter-- stay tuned!
(How I really made it through school...HA!)
