Culinary school started and my friends were eager to live vicariously through me. During the first week I was asked the same three questions:
- “What did you make today?”
- “Was it difficult?”
- “Was it delicious?”
My response was a little disappointing considering we spent the first week of school learning about sanitation & general kitchen knowledge (food identification, herb & spice reviews, etc).
Top 3 Kitchen Tips:
- Wash your hands with burning hot water & soap BEFORE, DURING and AFTER kitchen duties.
- When passing a knife, put it down on the table. Do not pass it by hand.
- Always say, “BEHIND” when walking behind someone in a kitchen.
As for the general knowledge portion… do you recognize any of these herbs and spices (click on the photos for a better view)?
