Last night marked two different occasions.
1. It was the first night, this semester, that the program has operated from the kitchen in E building where our lab classes are normally held. The E building has been undergoing a major renovation that kept it from being occupied. The kitchen renovations are not yet complete but things are in a sufficient state that we were given permission to hold class in it. Yeeha!
The culinary arts program offers a heartfelt thank you to all that helped us during this time period by allowing us to hold class in their kitchens. Most particularly, we would like to thank Jeanine Wilburn, Department Chair of Child Development and all of her staff, for allowing us the opportunity to hold class in their kitchen. Without your help I do not know what we would have done.
2. Last night was also the last night of our fundamentals of baking class. Being in our "normal" kitchen allowed the class to end the class with a plated dessert night. As you can see from the photo below, there are many interpretations of how a plated dessert should look. The one thing I can say for certain is that chocolate mousse is chocolate mousse. Yummm!
