Why is it FRIDAY already??
I’m happy it’s the weekend, sure…but my god, this week went fast.
I feel like I barely did any prep for moving or school. OOPS!
A couple highlights of the week –
I went to a Minnesota Twins Baseball game!
I’m not a huge baseball fan i’ll admit, but enjoy going once or twice a year…for the food and drinks of course 🙂
We sat in the dugout. It wasn’t bad. Not bad at all.
I also finally tried a new doughnut shop – Bogarts Doughnut Co. in Minneapolis!
It had been on my list of places to try for quite sometime. And I FINALLY got around to going.
Do you ever have a new restaurant you’re meaning to try but never seem to get there??
Bogart’s doughnuts was just awesome. Super delicious, high quality and creative flavors. I dragged my friend to come with me, and we sampled…not 1, not 2, but 3 doughnuts!!
Vanilla bean buttercream, brown butter glaze and lavender. OH, baby! Hard to pick just one fav!
Unfortunately I didn’t get to cook a new recipe this week…whomp whomp!
Huge bummer. But ya know, if there isn’t time…there isn’t time.
Trying not to sweat the small stuff here.
I also didn’t find a place to live.
And still have no idea how i’m actually moving to NYC.
But hey…this is my quote of the week:
To make myself feel better due to my lack of progress on my major transition to culinary school…
I was visiting my school – International Culinary Center – website and stumbled upon a wonderful YouTube video.
I’m a nerd like that and watch YouTube videos about culinary things!
It’s career advice from the one and only Gordon Ramsay.
Gordon Ramsay is a renowned celebrity chef for those of you who live under a rock 😛
You may have seen him on Hell’s Kitchen!?
Anyways, I had to share this video because he offers GREAT advice to young chefs.
My favorite advice from the video is right in the beginning – gain knowledge “it’s the biggest passport for anything.”
LOVE. How true. Knowledge is power.
Especially in the culinary world – there are SO many techniques, styles of cooking, culture, etc to learn.
The more experiences you have, the more you will learn and better your craft.
Here’s the link to the video – Hope some of you find it as inspiring as I did 🙂
Have a great weekend! Thanks so much for visiting LEFT SIDE OF THE TABLE!!
