Reflections from a Culinary Student…

There are about 4,000 ways to cook an artichoke, and trimming those prickly leaves never gets any faster.

Make your own pasta…

… It’s simple, you can freeze it, and you won’t regret it.

Some things are best eaten raw.

Never discard stale bread. Give croutons, bread crumbs and bread pudding a chance (particularly the latter).

If hazelnuts are on the menu, order them. Someone spent an excruciating amount of time toasting and peeling them — you can never quite get all the skins off.

It is possible to have too many souffl├ęs in one day, but I’d still recommend it.

Even if you can’t eat shellfish, you can still appreciate a beautiful plate of oysters.

Chocolate melts at room temperature, is incredibly difficult to work with, and will stain all your clothes…

… And it’s always worth the effort.
