Culinary School

Today I went to Gwinnett Technical College and tied up a few loose ends and pushed things through in the admission process. I got lucky in that the head of the culinary department was able to fit me into her schedule so I could do my interview with her. So now all the paper work is done, interview done, and my last two transcripts from Le Cordon Bleu and high school, should arrive early next week. Basically I just have to wait for a formal acceptance letter. It's exciting to think about going back to school to learn some more. It will be nice to be at home as well.

Something New

Since the busy season is dying down, the bosses are going to have me start working with Larkin, the gelato man at Sucré. I'm really looking forward to learning more. Speaking of learning more, I am applying to culinary school to learn the hot food side now. YEA!

I made my first white lasagna on Monday, and it had lots of good flavor. The only thing is I should have used half and half (instead of heavy cream) for the sauce and more spinach. I had fun making it.

I am on count down till my graduation ceremony for Le Cordon Bleu in Atlanta. I'll have to fly up to Atlanta for the weekend. I graduate with High Honors and Exemplary Attendance. I'm so happy!
