The Chef's Academy has been one of the best personal decisions I've ever made. This is reinforced by doing well on my practical, especially my egg practical in CA1010. I scored a 90% which is a low ‘A,’ but an ‘A’ none-the-less! When I took the practical I was worried that I would face some problems cooking them as I did the first time I made the French omelet in class. The first time I cooked the eggs I browned the omelet more than necessary, so that made me worry about the practical. However, I did much better than I was expecting, mostly because of my thought process, which made the test easier. It was the lessons that I learned from listening to Lou Tice. He helped me improve my self-confidence quite a bit and opened more doors so that I can succeed and overcome my limitations.
