It was great to see you last night and welcome to the Mad City chapter. We have a lot of work to do inside the chapter and your enthusiasm was a great spark last night.
See ya soon
I started my Culinary career in 2007, after many years of debating and waiting. Ever since I was young, I was captivated by the craft of food preperation. I remember watching episodes of the Frugal Gourmet, Julia Child and Foodtv Net., when it first started. "Thank God for reruns" I can also remember when my cousins recieved Easy Bake ovens, I always wanted to make something. I put off going to Culinary School in hopes of making a relationship work, that wasn' t destined to be part of my future. Now I realize that this is the place for me and where I feel like I am back in sync with life and the future I am working to fulfill. I love to make rustic pizzas, learning about cheeses and wines and making breads. I have a new found respect and love for baking and making cheese cakes. The Italian Cuisine and Mediterranean food interest me. Though I love Asian food and food in general, I am truly interested in this area of cuisine. I hope to find a Mentor and network, to better my skills and harness my energy, drive and enthusiasm. I look forward to the fine food and new rising professionals in the industry. I plan to be recognized for consistent quality food and that is my goal. In the words of Julia Child "I was never interested in anything until I found cooking."
