Fourth Restaurant Service

Another week has gone by and we find ourselves in restaurant service. I can’t believe this is our fourth, feel like we’re just getting in the groove of things in terms of management, organization, etc…At the same time, we only have 2 more services which I find quite sad as it points to the fact that our course ends in about a month. Have I been here for 3 months already? Time has definitely gone by in a split second!

In the meantime, I present to you Anglo B’s menu for our 4th restaurant service. Bon Appétit! A shoutout to Joppe for taking some of the pics!

This week was quite busy since we also had our second Fish demo by M.O.F Bruno Gauvain and we learned how to filet different fish including the Rouget, the Merlan and the Dorade.

Fileting the Rouget
I’m so proud of my Dorade filet! Right to the bone 🙂

And finally, a demo (which we watched) of salmon. It was huge…
A hectic week but a good week in terms of learning, developing our skills and getting one step closer to our dreams 🙂

    If this were a TV show, I can just imagine you doing the Grey's Anatomy-like voice over:

    “… getting one step closer to our dreams”
