Can you believe that I have already been living in Hawaii for 6 months! You might be saying, “Yes actually I can because you have fallen off the face of the web only to periodically brag to us about your awesome time there.” Ok, ok you are right- BUT, I am moving back to home sweet home in a little over a month to go to Escoffier School of Culinary Arts in none other than Boulder, Colorado (the town I went to college in AND the town named the #1 Foodiest Town in America by Bon Appetite!). Although my time here is almost over, it is bittersweet. I miss home but I have learned so much about different cultures and cuisines while here and I am so excited to share everything I have learned with you once my adventure is over.
So I know it may appear that I have fallen off the earth. Just like last time, I am assuring you that I haven’t. I have been super busy though, working and playing. A few weeks ago my mom came to Hawaii to visit me, which meant a weekend filled with eating. I feel bad that I haven’t had the time to write my own posts for a while, but I just felt like my mom’s post about her trip encompassed everything so well that I had to link to it for all of you to enjoy.
As many of you know, I am a line cook at Morimoto Waikiki here in Hawaii. I have been loving my job and have been learning so much about Japanese cuisine and general cooking techniques. I recently moved up in the kitchen and have been working some grill shifts in addition to my usual garde manger shifts. It is such a great experience and I think it will play a large role in my future in the culinary world.
