Thursday was my last day of Continental Cuisine. It's the second time we have had that chef already. We also had him for American Regional Cuisine. He is the nicest guy, not too hard on us but just strict enough so we get the work done but still have a good time doing it. Thursday, I made pork and clams, which arent actually cooked together except briefly at the end. Basically you marinate pork cubes in a white wine marinade with oil, garlic and piri piri which is a hot pepper, olive oil and sherry concoction, then you sear the pork and start stewing them in the marinade, and add a lot of sweet paprika. You stew that until the liquid is almost gone, then you steam open the clams on top of some onions thinly sliced, add the clams, juices and onions to the pork, and serve. Anyway this was the dish I got graded on for my practical. I don't know what I got yet. We also had the scantron final, which I got an 82 on. Monday we will find out our other grades, such as quiz average, homework grade, and final grade for the class. Next we have baking and pastry. I hear the chef we have for this is good. I sure hope so. I am not really into baking, but I know it's important to know the basics. I got my schedule for next trimester, and I have afternoon labs again, meaning more cooking classes, from 1:30-7:30 p.m. I am a little glad about this and a little unhappy. Having academics in the last trimester might be a good way to end the year--less demanding hours, no kitchen cleanup...but I just hope I don't get too bored with it. We will have to see. Forgive me for not being detailed in this entry. I am kind of tired, but if you all have any questions, feel free. I will probably come back tomorrow and try to add some more detail.
