The Future?

As it gets closer to my departure date of November 16, I want to let everyone know that I will be putting together a menu of desserts for order during the holidays. I promise not to place any complete failures on the list! I have been making notes of things I want to try to re-create exactly (Opera) and some notes on how to improve upon the basic recipes of others (Walnut Triumph).

I am also looking for an internship or a 20-hour a week job as a pastry assistant. Please let me know if you have any ideas. I would like a French restaurant or bakery, but mainly I want to learn from a talented pastry chef. The DC area is best, and part-time is important so I can spend time with my friends and family, I am of course flexible about working nights and weekends.

I have been working on my resume - it looks so empty with financial services condensed. I am wondering if it is appropriate to include photos of my successful desserts, as they are the best way to show my knowledge.

Here is a link to all of my creations to date - some are from before Le Cordon Bleu. Let me know which ones would look best on my resume and menu. The link is to facebook, but the album is open to all visitors.

I will be returning to Paris on December 29, ready to ring in the year at the Eiffel Tower!

  1. Aaaah, we know what the Frenchies love: French dressing, Baco's, and "spray" cheese! Absolutely give them as gifts to Chef JJ!!! They are "forbidden" pleasures he will never admit to liking, but that's his personality, mais non?
