Le Cordon Bleu

From the moment I walked in I was mesmerized. Students were pulling sugar and creating beautiful ribbons of candy. In another class students were pulling silver-skin off sub-primals and fabricating different cuts of meat, The next thing I knew I was attending orientation. I received 5 uniforms, a tool kit, and a student handbook. Then came skills 1 where I learned the 5 mother sauces of french cuisine. When we began learning knife skills we started with a hard aspic.The reason for this was that it could be melted afterwards and reformed. We practiced our julienne, brunoise, small dice, large dice, just to name a few. Then came skills 2. We worked more on our knife skills, and learned new cooking techniques.
