Culinary School Update
I find myself wishing that you were all closer so I could stop by for dinner – culinary school has kept me on my toes and out of my own kitchen. Midterms are this week. I’ve been studying foodborne illnesses, nutrition, and databases. Not much cooking yet. That will come soon enough.
I did finally get to don my new knife set last week. Chef Michael instructed us to get out our tools, including a carrot peeler. As I opened my knife case and carefully removed my brand new Wustof chef’s knife, excitement welled up inside me. I held back tears of joy. I’d been waiting 14 years for this moment and wanted it to be memorable.
Chef proceeded to hold up a carrot and said, “I’m going to teach you how to peel a carrot.”
Yep. I got my memorable moment. And a good laugh. The basics are always a good place to start.
Enough about my culinary adventures…or misadventures. I have a few things on my ‘to make’ list for when I get a moment or two.
Peanut butter cups from Avivah at Too Good to Be Healthy made my mouth water. I haven’t had a peanut butter cup for years. Alea from Premeditated Leftovers shared her Easy Applesauce Cake, which looks like a perfect dessert for guests.
My Submission & A Give-Away
I made dairy free, sugar free chocolate coconut pudding from I Love Dessert by my friend and food allergy expert, Nicolette Dumke. She’s giving a copy of this fabulous must-have book to one of my readers so make sure to stop by and leave a comment.
