Thank you so much, Chef Kim! You are more than welcome, and I will definately keep that in mind as well. I take pleasure in learning from chefs abroad. Keep in touch.

Hot, humid and reallllllly sticky! The students are all coming back to campus. The catering department is in the weeds. We have feed 2000 students three meals a day since Monday and will continue through Friday. Not to mention the all the other catering events. Fortunately I thrive on stress like many of us chef types. Nice to hear from you Kimberly.

Press on,

Chef, sorry for the delay in responding. I have been running back a forth in transition from the Fed to APS.
As far as the ACF, I would say kind of a non-issue for me. I am not in a lot of the circle, which seems to really benefit those who are. It's funny when I go to some of the local meetings and everyone is looking at me like I am a student and keep walking instead of networking.
