hello, first time poster here , and culinary student.
I want you guys to give me a good beginner , fun dish that I could create. Just to test my skills.
A classic beef wellington. Not exactly a "beginner" items but will give lots of skills a test. If you are a good and diligent beginner you will succeed and have a nice meal too!
A chicken pot pie would also test several skills: sauce velouté, roasting a chicken, making pastry. I thought of it because I'm making some today.
