I am not quite so jobless anymore. I don’t have a job… but I do however, have to go to work. I am probably not making much sense. Well, today I start a two week internship at Carpe Vino. The chef is giving me two weeks to prove myself for a position at the Garde Manger station ( cold foods like salads, cold appetizers, and desserts ). Considering this restaurant is a place that I have always wanted to work at, I am a bit nervous. This is a dream job for me, and to land it right out of culinary school is something that I didn’t even dream of because I didn’t think it was possible. I don’t have the job yet, so in the meantime I will just start dreaming about it. And if you haven’t already, you should eat there. The food is amazing. I promise.



I am a culinary school graduate. It is official. My very last day of school EVER was last Monday. ( Well, at least I’d like to think it will be my last day of school ever. You never know. ) Our last day of school consisted of a portfolio show where we had to make a bite sized dish for possible future employers to come and pretend to be interested in hiring us. I think only about 8 employers showed up…leaving me where I started. Jobless. Well, I tried. The good news is that my dish was paleo. Well, minus the crispy onions.

Seared Ahi tuna, with daikon, carrot, and jicama salad, wasabi sauce and coconut cream.

As you may know, I am obsessed with sushi, and wasabi. So, I figured I would incorporate a few of my favorite flavors into my dish. Turned out pretty good i’d say.

This is where I got to stand for hours…and hours for the portfolio show.

This was my friend Alicia and I after being at school for like 14 hours. Goodbye culinary school… now off to find me a job.

In the meantime, I am not really sure what to do with myself. I keep thinking that I have homework to do, or deadlines to reach… but I don’t. Guess I might as well focus on the blog!
