Finally in Culinary School

September 28, 2011 § 2 Comments

Goodbye Los Angeles

Last week I moved to New York City to begin culinary school at The Natural Gourmet Institute. I chose this culinary school over many others because it focuses on combining culinary arts and health. It is also the training grounds for some of the most well-known vegan and vegetarian chefs in the country. The school provides us with the best ingredients and cookware. All the food we use for classes is organic unless it is a rare fruit or vegetable that is out of season and/or native to another country which may be difficult to source organically.

I wanted to enroll in culinary school since high school, but never listened to that part of me. Since school began, my daily happiness and satisfaction levels reassure me that I am finally in the right place. I wouldn’t want to be doing anything else. It’s unreal knowing that I spend on a minimum 7-8 hours focused purely on learning, cooking and eating delicious foods. It’s amazing!

I concluded my first week with knife skills and I have learned that the French are very particular about their cuts. A little too particular. 

If you were wondering, the highlighted portion displays an 1/8 inch and 1/4 inch dices which form perfect cubes for the perfect French dish, which I have yet to learn.

I’m excited to be here and hope to share some new and innovative recipes as I continue to learn.

Thanks for following me!

Yes, it’s official!
