Bit of a head this morning. I had something of a large night last night – well large for a Monday at any rate. A few of us from the office left work on the dot of 5pm and headed down to the Institute of Culinary Education for Megan’s - our former colleague - graduation into the world of pastry chef-ing and baking.
I knew the evening could be trouble when I read Megan’s email invitation, in which she wrote “it will be fairly short and sweet, so be ready to have several glasses of wine in a short amount of time.”
“I was thinking of going out after for a little bit, unless people are opposed to a restaurant, meaning we could instead come to my apt to open some bottles of wine.”
There speaks a woman, who didn’t have to get up for work on Tuesday, however she did deserve to celebrate and I’m always up for a challenge. Suffice to say I ate a lot of carbs for lunch yesterday. It didn’t help that much. Poor me!!
…but enough about me and my self inflicted hangover. Just look at how talented Megan is…
...isn't it just FABULOUS?? This was her final exam, to make an 8" by 12" chocolate sculpture with a Holiday theme. Megan plumped for “The Rockefeller Center at Christmas.”
Look at the tree made of chocolate!! She’s so clever! I’m so proud!!
…So should any of you ever be in the market for an extraordinarily talented Pastry Chef, I’m willing to broker all offers :-)
