Re: A Different Kind of Art, FOOD!

First up we have the famous Oysters Rockafeller.



Along with them we made marinated seared halibut on roesti with soy-ginger holendaise, marinated beets and tempura asparagus.

Re: A Different Kind of Art, FOOD!

I was half asleep for class this morning (but my chef still said my partner and I did "very excellent in all aspects"), so elt me try and remember exactly what we did...

We made Sea bass, poached in fish sauce with mussles and turned zucchini with olive bruschetta on a bed of fetuccini leeks.

Re: A Different Kind of Art, FOOD!

Cooking really is not that hard. You just have to understand some basic principals and everything else is easy and fun.

Re: A Different Kind of Art, FOOD!

Lol, I actually really hate fish and sea food. My partner hates fish. It makes doing stuff like this rather difficult. But we still some how pulled it off.

Re: A Different Kind of Art, FOOD!

Do you have to taste things while cooking? x3 I love shrimp and crawfish but can't bring myself to eat other seafood, the fishy smell even gets to me when you first buy it.

Re: A Different Kind of Art, FOOD!

We're supposed to taste the food
Well ya I usually do. I can't stand the taste of some things, but I do still know what it should taste like, so I can make adjustments from there. I try to tste it as little as possible though.

When I do like something though I think I spend the majority of class tasting

Re: A Different Kind of Art, FOOD!

xD I would so do that. "Mmm, I've gotta check this chicken again! Oop, wait, added salt, tasting time again!"

How long are your classes typically? Do you naturally have plenty of time to finish making your dishes? We get about two hours and 30 or 40 minutes in many art studio-based classes and sometimes that's nowhere near enough, and sometimes that's WAY too much.

Re: A Different Kind of Art, FOOD!

Our lab classes are about 4 hours. Usually we manage to finish up a little early, but other times we really need to rush to make it out on time, and sometimes we just don't. It really depends what we're doing that day.

Re: A Different Kind of Art, FOOD!

no, but I want to. I think they'd be interesting to try, although I have heard rather mixed opinions on them.

For people who don't know, rock mountain, or prarie oysters are bull testicles.

Re: A Different Kind of Art, FOOD!

Haven't updated in a while, so here's some of what I've been doing.


This is actually my friend's plate. I took this for him then my camera ran out of batteries so I couldn't get a picture of mine. It's roasted rach of lamb with ratatouille.



Potage St. Germain. It's basically a puree of pea soup.



Asparagus salad with potatoes tossed in sun dried tomato mayonaise. I hate when we don't get to actually plate things.

Re: A Different Kind of Art, FOOD!

Oh man This looks so exquisite and you say your only an apprentice? I'm going to be a chef as well then Zay told me to check out your thread and you make really fine looking meals, I actually am going to go to a cook school as well but my family wants me to be a computer engineer or something like that but I am going to cook because food fascinates me the most even more than computers!

Re: A Different Kind of Art, FOOD!

I'm not sure if anyone has already said this. But it's so not fair that you post all these pictures of this delicious food and we can't eat any of it. :< Sad. Those dishes seriously look pro. Like that lamb stuff on the rat-a-too-ey stuff. What on earth. I wish I could cook as well as you. Do you bake cakes/cookies/muffins?

I wouldn't say only an apprentice. We actually get really in depth training in everything from basic theory of food and nutrition to both a theory and practical class on butchery. I have no dount that the apprentices have better training than any of the other cooking programs at my college.

You would like the lamb.

I actually had pastries 1 last year, and next semester I have pastries 2 I believe (or some type of baking course) however I dno't enjoy baking as much as cooking. If I need/want something baked, I'll make it, but cooking I often do just for fun, even if I'm not going to eat it.

I do have some more pictures to upload and post from this week, they should be up later today, and I'm also getting a new camera today!
