    Dear Friends, Please forgive me for getting so busy all the time; I have hardly any time to post anything. But I wanted to update you on how my culinary progress is coming along. The new update is that all the paperwork has been done; I won Financial Aid for the entire school year, along...

    Culinary Arts At Johnson & Wales University In Denver, CO

    To All, Firstly, I apologize for not keeping in touch often. Like all culinary persons, I have become extremely busy over the past year. I have just won a financial aid package (and still hope to win a scholarship) for attending the 2003-2004 school year at Johnson and Wales University in...

    I Have A Scholarship Coming Up

    LOL, don't worry, I'll drop in as much as I can, when time permits. I was supposed to see Pinehurst yesterday for the job interview; Colorado just had one of it's worst snowstorms, so no one could go out, as we were all snowed in. :( I called the chefs just now to apologize and realized that...

    How Bad Is The Industry?

    I should be a culinary graduate in the near future, but I noticed that, while looking for culinary jobs, no one seems to be hiring any more, nor are they interested in you. My roommate said that no one goes out to eat any more, which is why the restaurant industry is doing so poorly. I thought...

    My Very First Gingerbread House

    I can try, but I can't guarantee when the pictures will be up. Can we post pictures directly in a post here at Chef Talk or do we have to post them on a photo site? I have never posted pictures in a public forum before, so I'm not sure what to do. Any advice is very much appreciated!:D

    My Very First Gingerbread House

    I just bought my camera yesterday and took some really good pictures. I'm hoping that the film will be ready for developing in the next 2 or 3 weeks. Some of the pictures are close-ups, so that you can view details, and others are views at a good point of the different sides of the house...

    My Very First Gingerbread House

    I just finished making the very first gingerbread house in my entire life yesterday. Prior to this, I have been making gingerbread men, but I have become attracted to the idea of trying to make a house as well. That's why I asked for a recipe a while back (and many thanks to the person who...

    Italian Anisette Cookies

    An elderly Italian man lay dying in his bed. While suffering the agonies of impending death, he suddenly smelled the aroma of his favorite Italian anisette sprinkle cookies wafting up the stairs. He gathered his remaining strength and lifted himself from the bed. Leaning against the wall...

    Ps

    Now I am starting to get confused. I have always been told that if you have a degree, chances are you have a better time getting a job than a person who does not have a degree. This is the first time I have heard the statement that someone can't get a good culinary job simply because they...
