Thoughts For Food

Insights into the Mind of a Culinary School Student


Food Bites: First Impressions of the CIA

Howdy ya’ll! I’m finally moved in and have my internet connection working! No new recipes as of yet, but I can assure you, they’ll be posted up as soon as I learn them. In any case, I just wanted to give a small update on how things are going here at the moment.

I moved in yesterday and met my two roommates (yeah I’m in a triple). It’s a lot better than Fairfield’s rooms, I can tell you that much. There’s loads more room and my roomies are pretty chill. One is from Mexico and the other is from Minnesota. Needless to say, it’s quite an eclectic mix! I’m the only Baking/Pastry Arts student in the room, but i don’t mind. That just means that I’ll have people to share my homework with (and by “homework” I of course mean recipes).Today and tomorrow are orientation days. I pick up my knives and class schedule tomorrow. I’m nervous and excited at the same time. I really want to get some work started and get my culinary journey. From what I’ve been hearing around campus, the chefs are really fantastic to work with and will basically help you with any problem you may have. I’m glad to be in such a prestigious place and learning from some of the best culinary instructors in the world.

That’s all for now! Stay tuned for more updates and recipes guys!
