I'm a full time student working for the summer at a small soup restaurant for the lunch time crowd. I love cooking, baking, learning new recipes and trying new ingredients. The chef that I work for has taught me so many things, and I love learning something new everyday. Recently I spent a week at a kids camp where (with the help of three amazing volunteers!) I cooked for 65 campers and 15 plus staff. It was an amazing and rewarding experience.
My favorite things to cook
Soup, you can do anything with it! Every time I make it its slightly different, even if its the same recipe.
My cooking triumphs
When I did thanksgiving for my thirteen friends a couple years ago, with the help of my amazing roommate (**half way through preparing dinner he got the attention of everyone and said "go call your grandmas and thank them for doing this every year!!"**) It was the first time I had cooked for so many people, and it was also my first time having a major holiday at my house.
My cooking tragedies
Oh my, I think everyone has a couple; I burnt some stir fry vegetables to a crisp once, I forgot to cook out some flour in a soup once so it tasted like, well, flour! Another time I made soup at home and the flour burnt to the bottom of the pot so that was fun to clean out...
