Culinary School - Q6 Week 4 Latin

Latin – Week 4

August 2, 2011

Menu: Sopa de Palmito, Ceviche de Championes, Vatapa de Galinha, Pirao de Arroz, Couve a’ Mineira, Ensalada de Tomate y Cebolla, Crepes con Salsa de Dulce de Leche

Summary: This week we working on blanching, sautéing, stewing and sugar work.

Food: Our first dish was the Sopa de Palmito. The Soup tasted good but had a little too much cayenne pepper on the top. It also could have been a little warmer, but The flavor was good and it was the proper texture. Chef said it was a nice job.

Next up were our Ceviche de Champinones and Ensalada de Tomate y Cebolla. The Ceviche was very spicy but tasted good. Chef said it was a good job. The Tomato and Onion Salad was very good. The tomatoes and onions were properly sliced and the onions were prepared correctly. They did not have that oniony taste. Another good job!

The Vatapa de Galinha was good. The sauce was perfect but the meat was not cut and taken off the bone. The Kale was good. It was seasoned properly and cooked properly.

The Pirao de Arroz ok. The taste was correct. The serving side was a little large. It tasted a little like coconut flavored paste but was yummy with the Dulce de Leche on it!

And finally, the Crepes con Salas de Dulce de Leche. I thought they were fantastic. We had a nice presentation. The crepes were correctly browned. A really nice job with the Caramel. Although, I would have liked it better without the Rum. Chef said it was excellent.
