The End of the Road...or the Beginning?
I can't believe I'll be graduating on Wednesday (that is if I pass my final.) It feels like yesterday I had just purchased my first pair of black rubber work shoes and was learning how to dice and chop. Now I have scars all over my arms, have put on 5 pounds, and have a shiny new Japanese knife that I show off like a newborn baby (Misono 440 Gyutou). I've grown in so many ways...both in and out of the kitchen. Time really flies when you're having fun. I have enjoyed culinary school more than I ever could have imagined. I think it's the first real rewarding endeavor I've had since graduating from college. I've learned so much and met so many interesting people. But alas, play time is over and I must enter the real world again and find a job. I'm not quite sure I'm ready to leave the nurturing FCI kitchens!
