Day 7

A good day. Sophie and I had it all together today! All of our dishes turned out good and I think I'm finally getting the hang of making a tart...this was my second attempt, I hope it wasn't beginners luck! Not that I'm a beginner but Megan is the one who is the baker in the family not me. The last time I made a tart at home was for my friend Kelli's birthday; three attempts, three throw-aways, sent one of the girls to Marie Calendar's to buy a pie! I've got a new primary instructor this week. In his past life b.c.(before cooking)he was in an irish rock band and toured the world. Okay I know you all are thinking U2, no it wasn't U2 the name of the group was Stockton's Wing. Our demonstration today consisted of organ meats: heart, liver, sweetbreads....I tried everything without gagging, whew! Tomorrow is lecture day, no cooking for the students.

Today's cooking words of wisdom are: Taste, taste, taste, at the beginning, middle, and end of cooking. If the flavor is not quite there you can add salt, sugar, or lemon juice (the triology of flavor enhancers)and taste again.
