Hope everyone enjoyed their holiday season and had a chance to relax and eat lots and lots of delicious food! I took it easy and now I am fully charged and ready for school to begin tomorrow, I cant wait to get working in the kitchen again. Up next I will be learning more about menu planning, food costing, as well as Table d’Hôtes and lots of desserts.
In two weeks my class we be preparing a second lunch service. I am excited to see what they menu will be consisting of. I will post the full menu and hopefully some of you can come by and try a delicious three course meal.
My class is really improving, just before the break we catered a holiday luncheon for 350 people. The meal was an overwhelming success. We prepared cold cut and crudité platters, hot and cold appetizers, numerous meat and vegetarian main dishes, as well as some tasty desserts. We also got acquainted with all the difficulties that arise when transporting food from one location to another. From loading up a truck safely, to keeping food warm as well as making do with tight space we managed to prevail. The success was invigorating and gave us something to brag about during the holiday season.
Tomorrow will be a busy day of cleaning and reorganizing, but hopefully we get to learn a few new dishes I can post about. In the mean time, I would love to hear about any spectacular meals you have eaten while on holiday!
It is great to be back to reality 🙂
