    I am considering becoming a Pastry chef

    I agree entirely with that! That is one of the hardest things I try to get people to understand!!! The conversation usually goes "Oh, your a Chef?!?" "yup, 10 years on the hot line, with loads of banquet experience. Now i am a pastry chef." "I love cooking/baking! I want to go to culinary...

    What is your professional and personal opinion on mass producing and freezing.

    I produce thousands of Individual Cheesecakes, White Cakes, Carrot Cakes, Flourless Chocolate Cakes, Bread Puddings, etc. a year, and i always make batches of 200-500. Cook, cool, freeze, remove from silicone, tray with parchment, and wrap/label/date. Then store frozen until needed. Then...

    Whats the point of buying high priced knives???

    Personal preference...and dollar signs. I wouldn't spend more than probably $350 on a knife. Then again, I'm rough on my equipment. My 10" mercer does me just fine. It was only about $50.

    I've got an idea...need input

    Thanks for the input. It will probably be easier to get consistancy with the courgettes. Could you imagine having to prep 500 of those? I can picture the BEO now...preset salads and desserts...500 stuffed courgettes with creamy polenta, and vegetable medley...

    deep fried peanut butter

    Treating them like mozzerella sticks might be your best bet. If this works you could wrap a frozen Nutella cigarette in peanut butter and go to town!!!

    Puff pastry sounds good. Do you think that will work though, with the pumpkin?

    I've got an idea...need input

    I've had this idea rolling around in my head for a few weeks now, and I feel like I just need to get it out of my head. Imagine this... A baby pumpkin, top removed, insides removed, and the whole thing is par roasted. Once roasted and cooled, it's stuffed with a "chicken pot pie" kind of...

    Ginger giant from memphis, tn

    Hello all, my name is Andrew. I cook at the Hilton in memphis, tn. The title says ginger giant because I have red hair, freckles, pale skin, and I stand 6'4" tall at 255lbs. Cooking is all that I have ever done (as far as jobs go), and I wouldn't have it any other way. When the "waste hits the...
