I’m going to culinary camp at Johnson and Whales University. It’s only Wednesday and I have done so much at cooking camp this week. We’ve been making different styles of food. Today I made jambalaya and crawfish. Yesterday I made orange chicken skewers (which were too dry in my opinion), lemon aioli and an apple cole slaw. I’ve also made ham and bacon buttermilk biscuits with incredible sausage gravy.
Chef Ray has been a great teacher. He took us to his garden and we saw all the fruit, vegetable and herb plants he planted. I tasted a leaf that tasted really sugary. I think it could be a good substitute for making ice cream. I saw the whole campus from a chef’s perspective. On a scale of 1-5, i give this week a 5 so far.
