|Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts, Technique Building|
Today was my New Student Orientation and it was one of the hottest days of the summer. I walked to school and when I got there I got to go into the cooled buildings but unfortunately for the staff they had to set out in the asphalt parking lot in the heat! I got my schedule for the first session that starts on Monday, September 27, 2010 and ends on November 5, 2010. I have two classes, Culinary Foundations I that is MTWTF from 12:00PM-1:50PM and Food Safety and Sanitation that is MTTF from 2:00PM-3:40PM. Culinary Foundations includes knife techniques, recipe use, menu genres and the foundation for Le Cordon Bleu stocks and sauces are introduced. Food Safety and Sanitation covers the principles of safe food handling, the three types of hazards, and the most common causes of food borne illnesses. I am looking forward to both classes. Look for a report of my first day of class on Monday!
