I am pretty well on track with the food aspect of the buffet, I made the shells for my mini pecan pies and I finished my cookies. I didn't get either of my creamy custardy stuff done but it's ok, we have more time tomorrow than we originally thought we would. I still have to put my pastillage piece together, probably tomorrow and I have yet to do my sugar piece so we'll see how that goes. ...yay!
I do have some awesome news. I got an externship at Brasserie Montmartre (brasserieportland.com) which is totally exciting! I start this Friday and Saturday to train with their pastry chef, who is leaving...so that should be interesting. I'm really stoked about it and I can't wait to start, but it will be a LONG couple of days. After class tomorrow I will go home, hang out for a couple of hours, go to bed, be at the Brasserie at 7a, class at 2p, work at 11p then back at the Brasserie at 8a on Saturday. In any case, it's exciting and I am really happy that it's working out!
