I cooked this for dinner the other night and Don was so amazed with it. Something I take pleasure in especially when I hear him say, "Wow!", multiple times! I wouldn't say I'm the greatest chef ever. I don't have that much industry experience per se, but I like to experiment, try to re-create and… Continue reading Prawns Thermidor
I saw this kitchen gadget at Gourdo's earlier. And i just had to have this! My friend, who I work with, bought a mandolin which we use to slice or julienne fruits and vegetables with. If you've seen or used a mandolin, you'd know your fingers are doomed! Both my friend and I have been… Continue reading Prepara Trio Tri-Blade Peeler.
I should have posted sooner, but between the typhoon and the simultaneous make up classes, I just wanted to squeeze in all the sleep and rest I could get. We have finished 2 series of lessons and halfway through another, but I'm going to post all of them separately. This first one is special... Because… Continue reading Seafood Galore.

Lol Anyway, I paid a fortune to study so this is due. I'd still rather just buy my chicken already cleaned, cut and/or… Continue reading Ch-ch-chicken!
Pork Fabrication looked like it's going to be easier after all those beef, veal and lamb we cooked. I was wrong! My team and I have an "unspoken system" when we are cooking. So we thought everything will go on okay every time. But for the first time since school started, I felt like giving… Continue reading …And Even More Meat.
Okay so I've been really busy the past week. I only want to sleep when I get home from school or work! =P It's not easy juggling everything to be honest. But hey, nothing in life is easy. Anyway, we learned different parts and cuts and uses of beef, veal and lamb the last 3… Continue reading Meat Overload.
