Cold Kitchen

March 20, 2009

Time flies very fast ever since I started training in the kitchen. Another 3 weeks has past. Before I entered Muslim Kitchen, I was trained at Cold Kitchen. Basically, we prepared cold items such as sandwiches, salads, appetizers and fruits. Pardon me as I only managed to capture some pictures and some of them are in bad quality (my mobile phone camera quality).

And yeah, I learned fruit carving as well. It is not as easy as I thought.. The way you hold and handle your carving knife is very important in getting a nice result and everyone has their own style of doing it. So, it’s all about practise and patience.

And once again, I accidentally cut my right ring finger as I was washing a blender but it was just a mild one.

Every morning, I prepare salads and the condiments for buffet lunch.

After that, I prepare  fruit baskets for hotel guests. I have learned to cut fruits too (I know it’s simple but to me, everything needs practise).

Vegetarian skewers (and I made this too.. )

From top: cherry tomato, zuchinni, yellow zuchinni, red bell peppers, tofu, carrot.

That’s all for now. Thanks to Chef Wan and to the rest of the cold kitchen chefs for guiding me throughout the 3 weeks training.
