Making the Grade-Needing more Salt!

We took our final Foundations test on Thursday, our last day. That meant we would not find out our final grade until after the weekend. Well, I got an A in Foundations and a B+ in ServSafe. The latter really isn't that important as we still have to take the certification test for ServSafe. However, in theory, I'm doing really well. And, I can make mayonnaise! Sort of a like being able to load a gun really fast, but not being able to shoot anything yet. Ok, bad analogy. But you get what I mean.

During the off week, I hope to make at least 4 of the 5 leader sauces. Last night I made Veloute, a leader sauce. That's a blond roux, this time with homemade chicken stock. That became a mushroom and white wine sauce over pan fried chicken breasts with peas and saute fingerling potatoes. Chris raved about it. She's my best, and so far, my only customer. My chef would have told me, "needs more salt". They always say that.

Can you tell I'm working on my dish descriptions? It's required in menu planning.

Man this is fun!
