Menu: Run Down, Ensalada de Aguacate y pina, Pepperpot Soup, Arroz con Pollo, Sweet Potato Cake
Summary: This week we are working on poaching, simmering, pilaf method rice, baked custard.
Food: Our Run down was prepared correctly. The fish was cleaned properly and turned out nice and flaky. Chef said it was very good. I tasted it but thought it was too fishy. I prefer lighter flavored fish.
I didn’t get to taste the Pepper pot soup because it had shrimp in it but it looked good. Chef said that it had unusual flavors. We should have put the okra in the soup to cook for a little while. It would help thicken the soup. The temperature was correct and Chef said good job!
The Sweet potato cake was good. I think I was expecting it to be more like a cake but it turned out to be much more like custard. The flavor was nice with the cinnamon. Chef said we had a good idea with using the cinnamon whipped cream and he said it was really good!
