A Long Overdue Update and Good News!

So, I have been busy, busy, busy! Notice no posts for a LONG time? Well, that’s because I’vebeen in culinary school to become a pastry chef! I wanted to pop on and let you all know how I’ve been doing. Yesterday, I was in my FIRST chef competition. It was just a competition to guess mystery ingredients by smell, touch, and taste… But I won! Here’s a picture of me being presented as the winner.

So, I’m going to start sharing pictures of work I do in culinary school, and letting everyone enjoy them. I’ll also be competing in Feb. in my NEXT competition, where I’ll likely be doing cake decorating. I’ll definently be posting pictures of that cake!

In the business side of things, I’m starting to contact kosher bakeries and markets up and down the west coast to research possible jobs for when I graduate. My goal, as those who read my blog know, is to update kosher cuisine. I enjoy baking, and I want to make that my focus. YEARS down the road, I may decide to even become a master chef of kosher baking, who knows?

But, in the end, I want to do what makes ME happy. And that will be bringing fancy breads, pastries, cakes, and desserts to my community – Just 100% Kosher! Anyhow, I thank you all for reading, and I’ll keep you updated on my progress!

    I finish school the first week of June as a Certified Pastry Culinarian, I THINK… Though my chef told me that thanks to about 7 years of food service work under my belt, I may be able to upgrade that to a Certified Working Pastry Chef… We’ll see if that holds true. Right now my focus is just to graduate!

    As for what I mean by Kosher, I mean using all Kosher ingredients and preparing baked goods following Kashrut law in a Kosher kitchen. :)

    Please come to Milwaukee! Not only are we in need of a kosher bakery but anything kosher would be an improvement on the situation at hand!

    I don’t think the wife would let me move to Milwaukee! I did find this for you, though, with the help of google:
    Kosher Meat Klub Supermarket
    4731 W Burleigh St
    Milwaukee, WI 53210
    Phone: (414) 449-5980

    And thanks Chuck! It is just a self-ppublished book, but it is a start. I’m planning on doing a ‘Best of Renegade Kosher’ cook book next. ;)
