La Cuisiniér Diabétique says "Hi There"!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Considering everything when it comes to cooking, I would consider myself more than just a beginner... but still trying to become a good intermediate "Cuisiniér".

Some years ago when I was a senior in high school (and was lucky enough to only have a half day of school until noon), I picked up a part time job 6 to 8 hours a day when needed (depending on the day and shift) at a 100 room plus motor inn directly off one of the exits of a major interstate toll road.  Included as part of the motor inn was a in-house restaurant... and kitchen which could also serve banquets/parties for up to 250.

I was originally hired as "Chief" pots, pans, bottle washer and garbage taker-outer.  (After all, seeing I was the one doing it, I guess that made me "in charge" of myself.)

A situation came up one banquet/party night when the kitchen's salad/sandwich person wasn't able to work... so I was "quickly taught" the basics of what needed to be done and put into action.  It wasn't long after that I became the inn's part/full time (or is it full/part time) salad/sandwich person.  On those "off times" (when things weren't busy), I would hang around the Chef asking questions about food prep and cooking.  Not only did he "show and tell", but sometimes I was allowed to "put into action" what I had learned... (while he observed and looked over my shoulder).

My introduction into "Préparation Alimentaire et Cuisson" was short lived for only my senior school year, as I shortly joined the service after graduating... and thereafter got married and moved away.

Many years later (and just recently), I've found myself in a very unique ("retired") situation where I've taken over my wife's kitchen duties... which has given me the opportunity to renew my "Amour Pour la Cuisson".

I still have a lot to learn... and have decided to take a few "short course" local cooking lessons to help me better myself.
