FiftyTwo Treats

Posts Tagged ‘bouchons

I know I haven’t posted much as of late but between school and work and trying to have a life I’ve been pretty busy. Culinary school has been pretty awesome. There are some days I’m there and I can’t beleive I’m actually doing it and I get so excited. And then there are some days I’m so tired that I am like “What the hell am I doing? Why did I leave my job again?” Overall though, it’s been pretty great so far. My instructor is wonderful…and if any of you have ever had a Shake Shack shake you can thank her for making the wonderful custard recipe. (I found that out online…I had to do some research!) Since I’ve only just started 2 or 3 weeks ago we are still going over all the basics, like how to cut fruit and this is what creme fraiche tastes like. Things like that. Every once in a while though we get to bake, and that has been awesome. I haven’t taken many pictures but I’ll share the few I did take.

This was from the 2nd or 3rd day…we made caramel and tried to make little designs. I was just so proud of myself with these.

These little babies are called Bouchons, the signature dessert of Bouchon Bakery. After talking about them for an hour our instructor decided it was time to make some to eat while we watched a movie about sanitation. (Instant perk of being in culinary school!)

 I had another picture of me in my uniform but for some reason it’s not showing. I’ll work on that, it’s a really attractive uniform. And by that I mean it’s the least attractive thing I’ve ever worn.

And that’s life in culinary school so far!
