Default Why I am doing what I'm doing...

So deciding to pursue the penniless career of professional cooking was a huge leap for me. I will never be rich, or likely never be famous, but I love what I do. That all came together tonight at my first three course weekend. My work has all their chefs create a three course menu to serve for two nights only, it's kind of a big deal as some can do amazingly and some can flop. Like really flop... I've unfortunately witnessed a few of those so naturally going into my first one I was nervous. But my executive chef and my coworkers were all super supportive and i made my menu and presented it tonight to the public. Still nervous at this point but...

... I sold out my entree! What was prepared of it anyway, i have some more I can prep for tomorrow night but i sold half of what we brought in!

Anyway, I just thought i'd share what I made with you people since a lot of you have known me for a while and seen me go from major to major and watched me transition from dog centric work to other things.

So! Here we go.

Appetizer: Roasted Beet and Chèvre on arugula with a citrus vinaigrette and toasted walnuts.

Entree: Rack of pork with saskatoon berry glaze, caramelized leek and bacon whipped potatoes, and mixed seasonal vegetables.

Dessert: Cider poached pear with mascarpone cream garnished with a poppyseed tuile cookie.

That is all! Hopefully I didn't bore anyone to death with my rambling lol.

Way to go! That's a really huge compliment to sell out like that! You'll be a sous in no time!
