Kendall College… Culinary School.

Posted: January 4, 2011 in Uncategorized

It’s been over a year since I came to Chicago to attend culinary school. Honestly, when I first got here I did not know what it would really be like, if I would do well, or even if I would enjoy it. Now that I am in my final quarter of the associates part of my degree, I can honestly say that I do not regret coming here at all. In the past year that I have been here, I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Kendall. Even though Kendall does have its issues, it is still a great place to learn the craft and there are many great chef instructors to learn from. If you are thinking about pursuing a life in the culinary field, be warned, it is not glamorous like  what you think from watching the food network. It takes immense dedication, hard work, and sacrifice to achieve good food – at least that is what I have concluded.

So far I have enjoyed all the kitchen classes I have taken including baking and pastry, and the classes I particularly enjoyed were sausage making, photography, advance garde manger, and advance fish. Advance fish was surprisingly enjoyable as the dishes were delicious and Chef Elaine Sikorski is awesome! Love her anecdotes and attitude towards food and the industry. So far I’ve really had the pleasure of learning from some really cool chefs including Chef Kevin Schrimmer, Chef Mike Artlip, Chef Pierre Checchi, and Chef Walter Freund, all of whom are immensely knowledgeable and  are enjoyable to learn from.
