Day one: Who’s gonna carry all these books?

Because, seriously? I thought I’d given up my life as a professional schlepper. What you can’t quite tell from the photo below is that the text entitled “Professional Chef” is roughly the size of the complete works of Shakespeare and the Bible, combined. Where is a physical therapist when you need one?

Apologies that this first post contains neither a photo of me in chef’s uniform (coming) nor of actual cooking (way coming.) To say that this morning was a little overwhelming or that my 13 classmates and I only slightly resembled a herd of deer (venison) in headlights would be underexaggerating. The school’s dean spent a seemingly inordinate amount of time assuring us just how difficult this program would be to fail – which kind of disappointed me because I like to fancy myself in academically cutthroat situations – and then our first chef instructor spent a seemingly inordinate amount of time tangentially listing the various organ meats we would shortly taste. We were discouraged from ever eating fast food again, but apparently cheetos are okay sometimes.

Tales of dicing, whisking, and sauteing to come…

My shoulders hurt just thinking about these.
