YAAAYYYY!


team effort

Everyone helping to plate up the final course of a wine dinner. Marianne, Chadzilla, Ronny, Van.


quenelle

quenelle

I just discovered that quenelling sorbet with plastic spoons is quite difficult... even with PacoJet textures.


disciplinary action

disciplinary action

This is when the intern gets yelled at by the executive chef. Just kidding.


anna and chef k

anna and chef k

Anna is the restaurant manager. I think she raises pigeons because she is always trying to bring me one.


crumbling soil

crumbling soil

This is some macademia nut soil for a poached skate dish. I had to use a lot of tapioca maltodextrin in it to soak up the oils which left it with that mouthfeel I hate. I try to avoid using too much of it and will expel oils and liquids beforehand, but this one wasn't too bad with the overall dish.


dropping jelly

dropping jelly

A shiraz wine jelly that ended up being a pectin nightmare experience for chef k, but I think he figured it out. No worries.


fabian's dessert intermezzo

fabian's dessert intermezzo

This was the sweet tomato marmalade that was the base for the basil ice cream. Basically a caprese dessert.

Chef K and Fabian working the dessert for the McWilliams wine dinner.


van lam

van lam

Van is putting the flambeed peaches over chocolate olive oil cake. Although she is an f&b intern and not a culinary intern, her attitude and ability is impressive.

Kind of a weird picture.
