Sweet, sweet, Savory!

Just when I thought I was never going to happily ingest another piece of cake again, our pastry section of level two has mercifully ended, and all I have to show for it is a bag of dough in my freezer and a toothache. Well, I suppose I also gleaned some pastry making skills from the lessons, so all was not lost. Last night we had our first nutrition lesson and returned to savory cooking with an excellent dish of striped bass with lentils and an apple horseradish vinaigrette (it was pretty yummy.) The nutrition lessons are three classes towards the end of level 2 that try to give students a well rounded picture of what healthy diets consist of and the basic components of nutrition. It was pretty interesting to figure out what your calorie intake should be and all that jazz, but it was also ironic that nutrition classes follow 2 weeks of pastry making. I guess they are trying to whip you into shape after eating all of those cremes!
