My oldest Son Jacob is almost finished with Culinary School. I really can't believe how fast it went. Yesterday I came home to a packet of information he brought from his Culinary Instructor. It was how to apply for an apprenticeship. This apprenticeship is for 2 years, paid, and upon successful completion, he'll be a certified Sous Chef at age 23. I am in complete awe of what he has accomplished so far and his determination to achieve the best he can be.
It is quite probable he'll get the apprenticeship at the Universal Hilton in LA. This makes me so happy because it's still close enough for us to visit and he is truly a lover of LA. It makes me sad, however, because this means my first born will be moving out. I know it's time and I know he's nervous but this will allow him to grow even stronger as a man and as an aspiring Executive Chef. My Son, the Chef. I love the sound of that!
Here are just a few of his dishes he has made and plated. Too bad I haven't had the chance to taste most of them! His risotto is outstanding!
