Graduation!! Yay!!!

Posted on: September 21, 2009

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.

Two of my chef instructors.  I didn't get to know Chef Sabrina very well as we were with her such a short time.  However, I felt like I kept pestering Chef Kathryn since she was willing to answer all my pastry questions!
