Graduation Menu

I may be done, but I wasn't finished. I was called in today to help with preparations for the hospitality students graduation reception. I spent the afternoon helping Chef Prater and Chef Sturmer with busy work. Chef Praer had me washing (seemingly) a ton of rice so he can make horchata. Chef Sturmer kept me busy making pumpernickel toast points and crostini.

I got a sneak peak at the menu for the reception and it just made me smile, and I have to admit, it made me really glad to be a part of the culinary school!
