Kitchen 8

In 2011 I took my love for cooking one step higher. I started Certificate III in Commercial Cookery at the local college - Ryde TAFE.  The course takes 2.5 years part time.   The college has the best Hospitality facilities in NSW.  Not discounting the fact Sydney Le Cordon Bleu shares the campus with TAFE.  The view Building H is just spectacular - overlooking side suburb of Ryde all the way to Sydney Olympic Park. But my adventure is not all about the venue or the facilities.  Its all about the experience and each day I am learning.  At my age, its really a fun adventure, surrounded by young apprentices and some of the most experienced chefs in Sydney as teachers and mentors.  Here are recipes and dishes I've learned in Kitchen 8, 10 and 11.    The closest ever that I'll get to cook in a professional kitchen.  Someday I hope to make something out of this.  A catering business perhaps?  A bakeshop shop?  Personal chef services?  Who knows?  The bonus is - I get got to learn dishes and blog them too.
