FMS READS: CIA's Professional Chef
A long while ago I was laid off of a pretty cushy, yet unfulfilling job and needed something to do with my time. So I went to Barnes & Noble to roam and came across a super cookbook. It was huge and apparently a textbook for culinary students. The Professional Chef from the Culinary Institute of America to be exact. I didn't purchase the book while at the store because...unemployed, but I did eventually order it off of Amazon...don't judge me.
Seeing this book gave me an idea, if I teach myself everything that the students of CIA (not that CIA) learn, then I can get started with a catering/personal chef business. During that period of unemployment, I did manage to put a couple of things together for friends, but decided that catering may not be my lane, but I can still utilize whatever I learned in the book for my everyday wanna be Barefoot Contessa dreams. In the end, the book is everything.
