Myself and this blog are still alive. I have taken a very very long hiatus from blog writing, but thought it was only fair to let you know what I have been doing with my time.
Since September I have been embarking on a journey to become a chef. I am attending school in Toronto, ON and am loving it. It has been so much fun to be a student again, especially in a very interactive and hands-on learning environment.
I have always had a keen interest in cooking, baking and recipe testing and have loved taking these interests to the next level and honing in on some new skills. I have never chopped, julienned, brunoised, and diced so many vegetables in my life! Let alone butcher all cuts of meat, case sausages and fillet ginormous slimy fish.
The thing I love most about being in a culinary program is that you are continually learning new things. Whether it’s a tidbit on how to make green vegetables more vibrant or how to ensure a perfect pasta dough, the information is endless.
Being immersed a field that is constantly changing as food trends come and go is exciting. It is never stagnant and there is always more to be aware of…and I am very willing to learn!
I will do my best to keep you up to date on what’s is on my plate, both at school and at home.
This coming week I am not sure if you want to know the details….we are working on sweet breads and calf liver…Mmmm! I am trying to keep an open mind 😉
Have a super weekend!
If you could go to school or go back to school for anything, what would it be?
