Let's Tailgate!
So yesterday, The Chef's Academy hosted at tailgating event for the Raleigh Chamber of Commerce, it was a blas. I love helping arrange and host events for the school. It gives us the ability to network with people in the Raleigh area, and show them what we can do. My pastry class produced 1 dozen cupcakes each for dessert at the event, and we all had fun being able to to express our creativity.  In addition, the culinary classes made barbequed ribs, chicken, and pork. Oh the pork was delicious! I enjoyed being able to talk iwth several people including a gentleman from New Orleans. He was telling me about his hometown and how much he misses the food. I was able to talk to him long enough about where I work. I mentioned the authentic New Orleans style cuisine and he smiled and took down all the information I could give him. Afterward, he told me that he can't wait to come visit us, and even write about our restaurant in his food column. It just goes to show "you never know who you're going to meet." So always be ready to strut your stuff!
With a passion for pastry,
Jessica Vittoria
