The career advisor from my school hired me for a catering gig yesterday. Going into it all I knew was that it was going to be a nine hour shift, I needed to bring my knives, my Chef jacket, and it was a private party. When I got there it was a very nice home with a little farm on it. 120+ people were going to attend this party and the theme was a toast to the end of the summer with the highlight being corn grown by the homeowner.
I walked up and met the other three people I would be working with, all three of them were AIS graduates. I was a little intimidated by that but once we got to work all of that went away. There was a fair bit of chopping, shucking, and prepping so we all got to work on that. I shucked all the ears of corn, grilled tomatoes, made smoothies, grilled shrimp, opened bottles of wine, and washed a ton of dishes. I was left to do the not so glamorous work but that’s ok, we got the job done and worked with precision the entire evening. After everything was said and done I had a great time and had lots of fun cooking in the sun.
