It’s been a couple days since the last posting and I am sitting out in the gazebo in front of Roth hall working on my foie gras project and thought it’s time for me to post some news on my blog.
Well it’s been a good week as we started Monday with cooking our fist complete meal. Monday was submerged (deep) poach of salmon with bĂ©arnaise sauce. Tuesday was shallow poach of trout with a blance sauce? Wednesday was roasted chicken with pan gravy. Thursday was braised beef short ribs. Friday was stewed chicken. I thought all the dishes came out great but I still don’t like pan gravy. Also this week I received my grade for the Skills 1 class and I earned an A as far as I know the only one in the class to do so. I also found out to day that my chef for the next bloc will be Chef Mc Cue and he is an outstanding instructor. I am very excited to have him and I am looking forward to getting into that kitchen as we will be producing food that is feed to students as their lunch so the pressure is on to have the food ready on time.
The writing class foie gras project is fast coming to a close. I should have the booklet to the printer this week and we do our presentations on Wednesday in the Echo Lab at 4:30. So lot’s has been happening and I have lots to look forward to over the next couple weeks.
I started this posting on Thursday afternoon sitting out in front of Roth hall but did not get to finish it and post it until Sunday afternoon.
