Today was our first day in the kitchen in my baking class. I had so much fun, it was just what I expected. We made a chocolate cake that we’re going to use to make bread pudding next week and then we made strawberry rhubarb cobblers with pâte brisée crust. Everything was made from scratch and it took a long time. Plus there were tons of dishes to wash (yes, we wash our own dishes) and a huge mess to clean up when we were done. Honestly, the dishes weren’t that bad, but there were a lot of of them. I had a blast cooking, I always do. I’m really starting think I found something that fits. I’ve been trying to find something I really love to do for a long and I never dreamed it would be any kind of cooking but here I am.
I’m out of school tomorrow and then I have my cooking class Wednesday and we’re starting stocks, sauces, and knife skills. I think we’re going to make soup, too. I’m really looking forward to it.
