Week of May 4-8

Culinary Work May 4-8


Hello, welcome to the last week of distance learning!   If you are a senior that is!  The rest of you I will post more next week. This week will be a bit different.  This is the week we would normally be saying goodbye to our seniors and having a party to send them on their ways.  This also happens to be the week of Cinco de Mayo!  So we would have partied a lot. I have posted a link to a bit of information about the National Holiday.  Please watch it and so you will be well informed about Cinco de Mayo.  


My Culinary Challenge to you is to cook something this week that is Mexican.  Cook it and send me a photo of what you made.  I will be making a Mexican meal tomorrow as well.

Happy Cooking!

This week we will be watching a video on how to make fresh pasta.  I know that we made this last year so for some this is a review.  Fresh pasta is hard to beat and made of simple items.  


I realize that many of us do not have a pasta roller at home but you can roll the dough very thin with a rolling pin.  This is the method we do in class anyway.  You can also stuff the pasta and make ravioli.

This is a recipe that you will be able to make at home with some common ingredients.


We will watch both parts one and two.  Last week a few of you mentioned that you had a hard time getting it to come up, if that is the case Google Pate au Choux with Chef  Woolum at Sullivan University. The school puts out great videos if you would like to look at more.
