Ok, So I may be posting in the wrong thread, but I really need a real chefs help from somebody that doesn't know me. I am currently in my second semester of Culinary Arts, I love the field and I love the chefs, I love it all. The only problem is...I can never recall what I JUST ate or pick apart flavors. Every time I try I am completely wrong and everybody laughs. Granted they are laughing in good humor and I am okay with it. However, it is getting really old. For example, I was asked what kind of pie I was eating, I said "apple" when it was sugar cream! Today I was asked what I had for lunch, I said it was a type of peanut butter filled ravioli...later to realize it was butternut squash! I really want to train my palate and not be so embarrassed. So chefs can you help?
