This has been exhausting, especially since I don't like having things sprung on me. I like to be able to study and be prepared for tests, but that's not how it's done around here. But I survived. Here are pictures of various dishes I made during these two weeks of reviews.
What our assignments look like:
|Get to work!|
|Herb Veloute with Biscuits.|
|Filet in a Red Wine Reduction Sauce. At this point|
I can do reduction sauces in my sleep.
|More marching orders!|
|Braised Beef with Risotto.|
|Ricotta Ravioli. This was unbelievably good.|
The ricotta was sooo creamy.
|Chicken Pot Pie.|
|Coq Au Vin with Gratin Potatoes.|
|Meatballs with Polenta.|
|Overhead shot! It was really a pretty dish.|
|Pork with Black Beans, Rice and Slaw.|
|Get on it, people!|
|I was out sick when we did Pizza, so I needed some|
help. It turned out okay, I guess.
|Grilled Salmon with Salsa Verde.|
We celebrated Friday the 13th with a course in the basics of fermentation, presented by Ernest Miller of Rancho La Merced Provisions
. Not my area of interest, but the instructor was great and it was fun. Living in L.A., I don't need to grow or preserve my own food (we have farmer's markets on practically every corner) but if you lived in a rural area and did grow your own, this would be an invaluable skill.
We made Sauerkraut and Giardiniera.
|Supplies. Many, many supplies.|
Next week, sadly, is our last week. More reviews, jam and canning, a field trip and then graduation day! Hard to believe. It went so fast.
