Practice, Practice, Practice

As my regular readers know, I’m in my second week of culinary school at Le Cordon Bleu Los Angeles.  Though I fully intend on writing about my experience, I must admit that the first couple of weeks have not provided much fascinating material.

And now, back to my knives….
