A lobster lost their life in class today for the good of education. It was an interesting experiment in observing each learner’s internal/external motivation as they had to come into the kitchen to see what was going on…or not.

Day 3 plates where I like the chicken,sauce and dice better but hate the salad. The fish is changing as well because the lobster looks too sad so it’s going inside the pie and the salmon is going on the plate.

Second time around and I’m tickled that it’s fall.  Granny Smiths are easier to integrate and I can use one of my favorite squashes: butternut.  Current menu features
Orange and apple chicken confit
Chicken breast stuffed with spinach and mushroom couscous
Butternut onion tartlet with apple cranberry garnish
Turned poached apple
Need sauce!

Chicken breast with lemon matzah crust. I guess because of the crust and the skin , carryover cooking was 10 minutes and 13 degrees. I pulled it at 161 but will need to pull it earlier.
