My sincere congratulations to our Thunderpup! I have known several folks who have taken and graduated from the "Cordon Bleu." I hope, Ross, that this experience takes to where you want to go.

AZ Governor Fife Symington attended after being convicted of bank fraud and ousted from office. Too bad he was a crook because I haven't seen any other governor threaten to use the National Guard AGAINST federal forces.

Congrats! I guess we have to have a large Forum meet now, to sample his culinary artistry.



TP, Congrats !!!

I'm with you on the hotdog bit. Scrambled eggs CAN have Ketchup, but only if Tabasco is included. In fact, I am pretty sure that by law, every meat/egg type of food has to have Tabasco on it if it is going to have any other condiment.

Way to go, Pup, and congratulations! :)

As a side note, if I were in president's shoes, I would make some changes and adjustments to honor roll's writing to customize it and to make it more like TP-ish! :D That would be a nice joke! :p

Maybe, but it definitely means you would be welcome in the Richmond, VA area! My wife was out of town this last week, so I ate out three nights during the week. This place is a dining out horror show .... they can't even microwave right! Usually the food and service is very inconsistent in this chain restaurant sink hole. But this week every one of the three restaurants I ate wee at least consistent ..... they were consistently bad!

Pay attention, TP, to the menu writing and especially the cost control; that is where most restaurants go under.

yeah i hear this from everyone all my instructors pull me off to the side and say very important for me to pay attention to what they will teach me because some classes may sound stupid and not needed but they really are

If its your imagination, you definitely need to have it recalibrated. But even if you don't, I'd avoid mentioning that's the kind of thing you imagine. :bouncy:

I figured this is a good place to start this rather then starting a new thread

yesterday after my 2nd interview and a panel interview with the Executive Chef the Sous chef and management team
I was offered a job as Prep Cook
at one of the hottest new restaurants opening at the end of this month
in Fort lauderdal

It's owner by one of the best restrouant Groups i know of
Buckhead Life Restourant group has some of the best steak and seafood houses in atlatna and south florida

this one is Lobster Bar Sea Grille is the name
it's brand new
and they are giving me a chance
wow
usually you won't get a job like this when you are in school and have no fine dining kitchen experience but the Chef felt like giving me a shot to move up the ladder starting me at a place in the kitchen that would be best for me to learn as much as possible

specially when the add said 3 years experience in a fine dining kitchen i sent a email in and said i only have exp in
school but would you be open to giving me a chance
he called me like 30 minutes latter i had my first interview 2 weeks ago last Thursday and my last one yesterday

im betting that i had beat out atleast 100 people if not more that applied for this position

What a wonderful opportunity for you to grow along with a growing company.

If they are growing and opening new places he probably has horror stories about how hard it is to find good people who are trainable and not already poorly trained by others.

He probably likes the idea of finding someone who has the basic skills, from a great school, and teach them the way he wants. What a great compliment to you, that he offered you the job. :thumbsup:

Hey yup I will have everything mis en place all over the kitchen
To those who don't know what mis en place means
It's a French culinary term for everything in its place

Awesome Congrat's

My cousin owns a catering business that I have desserts, cookies and ect that I make from scratch that are on his Catering Menu that he subcontracts to me because I wont give out the recipes for them because the side money I make for just an hour of baking pays me real good for doing something I like to do just for the hell of it.

Then I bake stuff and take them into business meetings for new clients with other companies to butter them up and my cousin has actually catered for people and events where people have come up to him questioning where he got them instantly recognizing my recipes for what ever I made from my meetings telling him I have ate this before made by so & so at so & so company lol
