I’m not one for ceremonies. I hated every graduation ceremony I had to attend, every religious ceremony (except for baptism, cuz well, I was a baby) and I wasn’t even excited about my high school prom. So when I heard about my culinary school having a graduation ceremony where we were supposed to cook all the food and basically put on an event for our guests, I really wasn’t happy. For a while I figured I’d just do my part and cook but then just leave for the actual event. Then a friend of mine pointed out that it would be stupid to spend a class period of 4 hours and an entire full day preparing for this event only to just leave. *sigh* Of course, I ended up spending hours preparing and then I ended up spending a few hours at the event. We were presented with a Larousse Gastronomique and a chef’s hat! We also had quite a nice spread, I must say. I don’t remember what all the food was, but it was all very good. Here’s some shots of the event.
It was a LONG day and for once, I was glad I attended one graduation ceremony.
