Thank you!I would like to thank all of you for such a warm welcome!
Im really amazed.
Im sorry I didn´t reply right away but I had a busy week....
It´s very nice to meet you all.
So....what can I tell you about me? Well... I guess I was interested in cooking since I was a little kid. then, during my first or second year of High School, I got into cooking class at a very known institute here in Chile. It was a basic course for International Cooking. Even though it was a basic and short course, it gave me the basics of cooking and what´s more important: it made me realize that that was what I really wanted to do!
So, after a couple of years, I made my disicion of taking a serious step forward in that direction. I studied english for a year (to reach the level I needed) and by the end of that year I was speaking english A LOT better and I got out of High School at the same time...so I took my luggage and went to Canada to study a Chef Training program at St. Clair College.(a program of 1 year) .
I came back to my country in May of last year and started to look for a job, something to put to work al the knowledge I had gotten in school. Until I found a place where they needed a young chef. Knowing that I didn´t have the preparation requiered for such a a position, I went anyways...just for fun and to see what would happen. I presented a project they requiered to apply and...they chose me!! I couldn´t believe it.....
So, here it´s where I am...working for this little restaurant that hasn´t opened yet. I´ve been busy creating the menus and stuff like that. I´ve also had to cook demonstration lunches for the owners and their guests. (why lunches you may ask?...´cause in Chile, lunch is almost the most important meal of the day...).
I also chose my crew of people and everything. We hope will open doors next week! (This is going to be crazy!)
