Culinary School: One Week To Go!Saturday, May 05, 2012 Mary Anne Velasco
This morning was mind-boggling. We were finally divided into groups of three and were presented with a list of the ingredients our chef wanted to have for the entrée, main course and the dessert. We were also informed about our time limit, a bit about the judging criteria and a few more rules to observe [hygiene, prep and so on]. Each group were given some time to plan the menu, ponder on the presentation, make a list of the ingredients we need and compute the total cost. It was definitely a challenge everybody took so seriously. Interesting, no doubt!
Friday next week is going to be our last day of school. We all are excited to enter the real culinary world where we will no longer be referred to as the interns but chefs however, before that happens, we have to submit our grades, certificate of completion, recommendation letters and our CVs. Oh my… this is really happening, isn’t it?
We are all particularly concerned with fixing our CVs on our own. For me, it’s going to be another challenge. I must be very careful with all the necessary info I need to write down, the words I’ll be using and the spelling. Believe me, Swedish is a difficult language. Using o instead of ö or typing the wrong preposition --- may make or break your career. You’re right. I do sound like I need the best resume service [http://www.resumelines.com/resume-writing-database.html] out there. If a resume for me is a serious matter what more to Federal job seekers? If you are applying for a Federal position and feeling uncertainties, find a federal resume writer to better your chances of getting the job you want.
How about you? Do you love to cook and/or bake? Do you attend culinary classes or do you want to enroll to one?
