That looks delicious GG

It turned out quite good, but we'll see as time goes on
YUM!!!!!

I would love to make this one

So sorry to hear this GG

I do like the sound of the positives though

I'm going to finish the sanitation (ServSafe) class, because passing the final exam gives you the national food handlers' certificate; it might come in handy.

On the bright side, I have a cool new set of knives and other tools, a great book from the American Culinary Federation, some new skills and experiences, and a few contacts in the industry. One chef/instructor said to keep in touch with her and we'll brainstorm other ways to reach my goals. It was never my goal to work as a line cook or open a restaurant, so this program probably isn't the best for me anyway. Serendipity, sorta I will miss the free afternoon international snack, though
