November 2012

Well I’m back at school again. Yay!!!!! For the next 6 weeks I’m taking a Creative Plate presentation class at George Brown College. The focus here is not on cooking but doing more restaurant quality presentation. Every other week chef cooks, and demonstrates the techniques that he wants us to repeat the week after. Can you say intense?

Fennel isn't something that is native to the Caribbean, so it isn't a vegetable that I grew up eating. I was fortunate that I got to travel quite a bit so that I knew what it looked like, and I was fortunate enough to taste it, but it certainly isn't a vegetable that I picked up regularly, until recently.
