I began formal culinary training on April 22nd, 2008. After spending almost one year monitoring what I ate (for health reasons*) -- and helping myself to extra servings of food lit as well as cooking for myself and for my wife -- I thought it was time to eat (and write) for pleasure. After completing the coursework and working in the field a few months, I continued with another program in culinary management on January 7th, 2009. I don't know what the future may hold but I hope to let this blog light the way.
With these blog entries, I plan to document my day-to-day culinary training. My home cooking. And any and all new recipes and revelations from various restaurants and home kitchens around NYC.
* Additionally, I recorded my daily diet for my nutritionist, Ilsa Jule during my time in the culinary program. I now blog about that separately at Learning to Feed. I hope that what is learned inside the classroom helps to yield a new way of eating, cooking, and living in the outside world. And, if I dare to dream, maybe even help me to lose a few pounds...
I am not an employee or shill for any one culinary school. I purposefully do not name the school I am attending because if my experience heads south, I'm going to write about it. Do I really need to say that all opinions expressed are my own?
