This class was tough.
I recommend this course because I learned so much in such a short amount of time. It probably felt like a short time because although the work was hard it was fun. I learned to work hard, work fast and to be clean and organized in the work place and in my personal life.
I learned to cook. What does that mean? Well I learned to sauté, caramelize, roast, deglaze. I learned wet cooking methods and dry cooking methods. I learned to debone chicken, duck, fish. I learned about how different foods and spices pair. I learned the proper cooking methods for individual food groups. My favorite time was learning to cook duck. Dick is basically the filet mignon of the air.

Advice for students:
I was given advise by previous students and I want to say they were wrong. Do not go in expecting to get in trouble. Do not go in expecting to cry. Do not go in like a scared deer to the slaughter. Here is my advise because it worked out for me and I had one of the greatest times of my life. 1. Go in determined to work hard, do your best, and finish first, even when class seems difficult. 2. Always answer anything with "Yes Chef". Respect is important. 3. Go above and beyond what you are asked to do. Get your work done, be clean and organized as you go. Help others if they are struggling and don't cease to ask for help if you need it. And get your homework done at home! 4. Don't stand around. Be constantly moving. 5. Pay attention to everything. Yes, every single thing. Your work. The work going on around you. What needs to be cleaned. Don't ever be caught off guard. 6. You're not in school to get a grade. You are in school to learn. The grade is just a reflection of how much you have learned!
