Back at School

(Above are some pictures of my station and dishes before the menu change; gnocchi with mushrooms, crab cakes topped with vanilla bean pepper slaw & shaved beets, and braised pork belly)

Well after a surprisingly short red eye(flight-only 4 1/2 hours from Seattle to Boston, kinda quick) and a normal length drive from Boston to Poughkeepsie I am back in my dorm.

Yesterday we had a prep day in class, the restaurant wasn't open today and we had to get all the shtuff ready for service on tuesday.

For those of you who have no idea what I'm talking about, my class right now is working in one of the restaurants on campus, it's my last cooking class here and I'm going to go ahead and say it's an intense, if not hectic class.

I am on the Hot Appetizers station, it's very busy and when we got into class yesterday Chef told us that he had chosen to switch the stations around so I lost my partner. oh joy!
