These were the highlights of my Magnifique Training at Sofitel. Words can’t describe how lucky I was to work with these experienced yet humble people. I will truly miss them. (Well, of course maybe just for now. Had my 1st and 2nd interview last monday, just waiting for the 3rd interview as a casual cook at Sofitel.)

Hello tumblr!

I’ve been inactive for months now, and I’ve missed posting recipes and photos of my own food creations.

Just a little catch up:

I’m 20!!! ouch :( Must face reality.

I’m finally done with my last internship!!! No more kitchen work for me now :) It’s vacation time!!!

Got my graduation pictorial, was a bit disappointed with the outcome. I looked really fat in the pictures. *sobs* My fault anyway, I’ve been eating a lot during my internship.

That’s about it :) Will post photos soon while I was on duty :D

Been very busy with my internship at Sofitel. So it’s now my 6th week there and God! I’ve learned a lot from this training. My first two weeks was in the French Stove, Spiral. And then two at the Main Hot kitchen and now I’m currently at the Main Pastry. I don’t want to leave the pastry department but I had to :( Next week I’ll be at the Ala Carte already.. huhu time really flies when you have fun. Can’t imagine I’ve been working straight for already 6 weeks :)

Will post some photos later!!

Au revoir!

French Stove.

Today’s my last day at the French Stove Spiral. Really learned a lot from them in such a small period of time. It’s really inspiring to work with Chef Bettina, she’s really dedicated to her job as our team leader. She’s open to everyone, she’s kind and she’s very talented, no wonder she’s our Sous Chef. Though being in french was really tough, I’m very thankful because they taught me a lot of techniques that I could use. They were very open to me, when I asked questions they were always there to answer. 

I was mostly assigned in the pasta and foei gras area. It was such a fun experience because I love making pasta, so it wasn’t that hard for me at all. This one is Chef Bettina’s new creation:

Seared Salmon with Balsamic Teriyaki Glaze topped with Foei Gras and Fried Nori -this one’s really good, I tell you. So if ever you’re going to eat dinner at Spiral try this :) We also have a Foei Gras Tart which has shredded beef in it.

And then I was assigned in the Pizza and Seafood area, it was much easier than the pasta station. Overall had a great time at the French Stove, will surely miss all the chef there. 

On monday I’ll be on the Main Kitchen :)

Au Revoir!

French Stove.

October 29, 2013.

It’s my first day at Sofitel. And I was assigned at the French Stove, Spiral. I was so happy that I got to be there. It was so tiring, because there were so many preparations to do. I chopped and cut and chopped again so many vegetables. Went to the chiller many times. And oh my god! They have so many kitchen, it made a little dizzy. Haha. Anyways, the Chef’s were very nice, I love them already!!! Hope to learn more French dishes from them :)

Au Revoir!

Yema filled Cookies

When I was at a friend’s house, he offered me this Nutella Pastillas and I wanted to do that also. But since I’m broke and eggs were the only thing that I could afford for now. I thought of creating a new cookie for my business and it’s these Yema Cookies. It was sweet and had that custard goodness in it, I was pretty happy with the result. Brought some of these at school, my friends liked it. But it melted, it was oozing all over and  it was a mess. And so I thought of instead having the yema outside, I’d be stuffing it inside. Made that yesterday and it was perfect! Had 3 orders already :D

Life is Magnifique!

These were taken during my interview and orientation at Sofitel. As you can see some of my batchmates are interns at Sofitel already, they were the ones who helped me and believed that I could pass the interviews. So yey to us! I’ll be starting on October 29, I really do hope that I’ll have fun during my internship.

Au revoir!
