It's Almost Over

Garde Manger: Chicken Gallantine

Hello, friends. I know I'm not supposed to apologize for how long it's been since I've posted and all that, but I really am sorry. I've missed you guys! Here's the thing: culinary school is almost over. I took the written final on Saturday morning. Tomorrow is the final practicum, where I'll pick a card, any card, and then just... make what's on it. And Wednesday is the creative practicum, for which I am currently doing a ton of paperwork and cooking. Graduation is the 25th and that's all she wrote. I'm sad; cooking camp is over! Anyway, I'll be back soon, I hope, with recipes that aren't just me practicing for my test tomorrow.

  1. Congratulations on such an amazing accomplishment! Best of luck on the last few hurdles. xoo

  2. How very exciting for you! Good luck -sounds like a hard test!

  3. That's awesome. Sounds like an exhausting yet fantastic experience. I can't even image to cook on demand something random. PS - I'm super impressed with that chicken dish above. I thought it was dessert ;)

  4. I honestly thought that chicken gallatine was the lid to a butter dish. No shame. :)
    I'm so glad to see you back in the blogworld. I wish I could get back with as much.... oomph. :)
