The End Leads to the Beginning

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!)
