Tempting Your Appetites

Kitchen Dedication Mini French Buffet, originally uploaded by Theresa111.


This is the way buffet desserts are supposed to look … enticing, decadent, delicious, wondrous, creative, divine, Irresistible and scrumptious. This is only a part of the French Mini Buffet for the Kitchen dedication held at my French culinary school. Photo taken March 2005.

It takes hours, days to put this together. A combined effort. Planning, meetings, strategies and precision. This is a beautiful result of all these things executed with love and discipline. This is the result of extensive training at a prestigious culinary school. It takes chef demonstrations, hands-on training, theory, studying and good character to present yourself as one of their students.

I knew I would miss my school. The real world is so different from this special haven of creative thinking. At times I can see myself as an instructor.

Julia Child was my favorite television chef to watch.  Three years ago when I was debating and dreaming of attending a French culinary school, Julia Child passed away on my birthday, August 13th. I took this as a sign to follow my dreams. So far, I am on track. My journey is unfolding even as I write.

    Hi Minx, I caught a sore throat and I’m not feeling too perky. I don’t have any plans for my birthday yet. Maybe something will come up. Yes, those nuns are very cute and the roses are pretty. Hope you’re doing well. oxox

    Tselmende, Thank you. We all worked diligently to present those desserts. My dream is to eventually have my own Jazz Cafe`. But that’s a bit down the road. Glad you enjoyed.
