I am a graduate from the culinary arts program and I want to become a Red Seal Chef one day. These photos are a reflection of my experiences at school, the collective efforts of my classmates, and other adventures in the culinary industry. I hope to fill this blog with many photos and see how far I go to becoming a great chef.
BTW, thanks for dropping by.

Thanks! I made this blog so I could chronicle my classmates’ and my culinary creations, a type of scrapbook if you will. It was fun looking back at how we got from beginning to end. I’m glad you enjoyed my blog as much as making it. I hope it inspires you to follow your dreams as I did!
Anonymous asked: What is the most stressful part of culinary arts ? do you ever have issues with perfectionism ?
Aside from treating homework like high school papers (lost a lot of sleep because of this), I would say that the most stressful part of studying culinary arts is getting ready for final practicals. Each one was treated like a black box. You can think of it like an Iron Chef competition but a little more lenient than that. Our finals would be a random assortment of recipes that we had done in class. For example, our baking practical consisted of one bread loaf, half a dozen dinner rolls, a pie with a custard-type filling, half a dozen tarts, and piped cookies. All of these had to be completed within 4 hours! It’s not all that bad though. Some practicals range from 2 to 8 hours, depending on the subject.
Personally, I had some issues with perfectionism. In the kitchen, I find it can’t be helped. My classmates and I always want to make good looking and great tasting food.
