Week two provided me the opportunity to absorb the knowledge that has been streaming through my veins. Everything here is exceptionally fast paced, takes some getting used to! Though I’ve already forgot what well rested feels like I am exactly where I should be.
Some even got them a little bloody but my record is
Kristy (2) - Knives (0)! No finger cots for me this week…
Julienne, Brunoise, Batonnet, Tourne, oh my! Clearly – My skills have not completely developed.
The mission: Prepare onions four ways. Raw. Lightly cooked. Caramelized. Burnt.
We all dried our tears and processed to flavor testing.
In this challenge we tasted each flavor. Sour (lemon juice), Salty (salt water), Sweet (sugar water) and Bitter.
As we drank the liquids we were instructed to indentify where on our tongues we actually tasted them!
A super taster? A medium (average) taster? Low level taster?
Did you know that smokes taste less than non-smokers?
