Yes, I did just quote Ratatouille. I have seen this movie many times. One because its cute and Parisian and all the sweet, romantic things a girl dreams about. And two, because this was my go-to video for the Food Trades class I had the gracious opportunity to substitute. It was because of this experience that I really pushed myself to go chase after this crazy dream of becoming a pastry chef. I dabbled in some baking courses before but it wasn’t until I had chance to share my knowledge that I truly believed that I could seriously do this. And with this quote I enrolled at the Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts and competed for a scholarship with my Rustic Apple and Pear Galette and won first place! It was such a surreal moment, as if the Fates were telling me, “This is what you’re supposed to be doing,” and so I carried on.
So here we are, dear readers. I went to culinary school so I can eventually teach and write about food. Let’s begin with the writing. What you will be reading are historical aspects that we never really consider when eating, experiments as I realize that most of my American recipes don’t turn out the same in Scotland, and any other nuggets of information that I find interesting (books, films, gadgets, etc.). Bear in mind that when I do get to the history, I’m doing my absolute best in sharing the most accurate and well researched information. I truly hope you enjoy!
Let’s do this thing!
