The 2011 SUSTA Program at Nicholls State University - This year chefs from the best 5 star restaurants in China came to Nicholls to learn Western Cuisine. I was honored to be a student assistant to the Chefs, of whom only two spoke a bit of english. It was the experience of a lifetime to see chefs of this caliber learning to execute the techniques of Western and Cajun/Creole Cuisine. The most interesting was their time in the baking kitchen, as Chinese do not make pasteries and bread. Every day they prepared a soup on the fly because they say they have soup with every meal. It was excellent food, with a Chinese twist.
