As one of the new specialties I have the opportunity to work in the culinary field for my internship concentration. I’ve had the opportunity to work with many of the talented chefs during my culinary rotation at Curry College. They were able to teach me all the areas of the kitchen, including the design of the dinning area, how efficiently the food has to be delivered to the students and most importantly how it all is prepared and presented. I was given the opportunity to work with many of Curry ‘s talented staff, from the head chef Christian King to all of his talented employees. I was also able to utilize and learn different skills each day ranging from sautéing, knife skills, kitchen terms, working in my own specialty station with the talented chef Otto on how to prepare and procure sushi, and preparing my own mindful event. Working with the pastry chefs, my culinary project came to life. For finals week, I worked with the regional RD of the area on a project to provide the students with healthy snacks. ”Fueling up for Finals” provided the students with the information and tools to stay healthy during the hectic schedule of finals with healthy energy bites. The energy bites were small balls packed full with fiber, protein, omega-3’s and plenty of vitamins and minerals. I provided the nutritional information of these exciting snacks that would keep the students and faculty filled with energy in between meals and satiated while studying for their final exams. Not only were the energy bites such a huge hit for that day, but the students have been requesting them each time I visit and now the energy bites are going to be a healthy option available at Curry College in the dinning services. The energy bites have been a huge hit not only among the students but the professional staff as well; they were featured at other sites during my culinary rotations. I was recently able to participate in the event ROCK THE BIKE at Clark University, students were able to build their own smoothies and then had to power the blender by riding the bike. I’ve never seen students, employees, and university staff so excited to make their own smoothies. This has been, by far, one of my favorite rotations.
