As we entered we were told our classes for the term (BP-D) and sent to meet our classmates in various rooms that were laden with breakfast pastrys to indulge in. From here we began our introductory tour of the school from one of the teaching chefs.
The rest of the day I spend in an odd state of overwhelmed bliss. Without sounding too mushy, I just felt so lucky to be there. This is it - Patisserie school.
To add to this, we were given so many goodies that I could barely carry them all. List to include a beautiful set of knives and kitchen equippment, a sack of chef uniform and my bible for next 3 months - term ones course manual.
Throughout were given a lot of information about timetables, regulations, saftey and told about the great prospects that potentially lay ahead of us if we put our heads down and worked for it.
So a year of hardwork begins here. But with a curriculem that includes "a brief history of ice cream" who's complaining? Certainly not me.
P.S. Check out the toilets.
