The days have been ticking by quickly, only six weeks until final exams! The past couple of months have been really exciting. We have been spending time learning about each country’s cuisine and historical background. This was the area of the program that I was most excited to learn; which makes sense considering my love of traveling. This was as close to being in each place as I could get… for now!
It is Friday, the weekend right?! For me, that doesn’t mean relaxing, far from. It means two crazy nights at work. I have been working mostly nights at Morimoto Waikiki, with the exception of a couple morning shift this week. It amazes me the difference in the type of shift I have when I work a lunch versus a night. Lunch shifts at Morimoto are mostly about setting up and prepping out food. Night shift are about putting out food, and lots of it. I am excited to be working nights after working lunches all fall at SALT, but it is a pretty crazy experience. Morimoto is a high-volume fine dining restaurant, which means go time all the time at night. The good thing is, I am LOVING it! The kitchen at Morimoto runs much more smoothly than my last job, which makes busy nights feel less chaotic. I love the excitement of the kitchen at night, not to mention the fact that time flies by when you are busy. What are your weekend plans? If you have some free time I have just the recipe for you. Rujuta over at Oblique Rays is our featured blogger for today with a delicious recipe for you to make on your days off! I know you are going to love this one. Have a great weekend!
Tiramisu is the perfect easy “fancy” dessert. It doesn’t take long to put together, but will impress your guests. Be careful not to add too much rum, or else you will have a really boozy tasting dessert. Also, remember that this has espresso in it, which means lots of caffeine.
