Day3: First Recipes
Today was my first day of uncertainty. Not any bit having to do with school or the actual cooking and everything but with waking up every morning at 6am and going onto a crowded train and then right on to an even more crowded subway. It started last night at around 10 pm and really wouldn’t let me fall asleep.
We had a pretty full day of cooking, tasting a bunch of vegetables. But the highlight of the day would have to be the first two recipes of the class. RATATOUILLE and a BEET and GOATCHEESE TIMBALE salad. Both recipes focused a lot on the cuts that we’ve been practicing the past couple of days. The Ratatouille was a fairly simple recipe conceptually but still required a bit of prep. The beets salad was really very good but had just a little too much richness with the layer of goatcheese. All of the ingredients combined together in a single bite, it really molded together well.
Tomorrow we have tournage which is a really difficult cutting technique. I’ll let you know how it goes…
