Summary: My mid term paper was on Cat Cora. I admire her because she has really made a place for female chefs. I feel like I did a good job on the written exam. Most of the words were familiar to me.
Chicken and Andouille Sausage Gumbo
Bread Pudding with Whiskey Sauce
The Food: This is the first time I have ever made a dark roux. It was so easy. I am glad that I got the chance to do that. I also feel glad that everyone got a chance to cook with the alligator.
Summary: I really liked the gumbo. The color was perfect and the flavor was delicious. Next time I will pay more attention to the oil and make sure that I either siphon some off or add more flour to make it less oil. I was disappointed with the etoufee because I didn’t taste the fish stock before I added it to the etoufee. It was really fishy. Had I tasted it first I would have used chicken stock instead of the fish stock. The bread pudding was good, but next time I think I would take it out sooner.
