Black Sea

Hello everyone. I had a very exciting week. Monday my cousin surprised me. She visited me in Varna and we spent her birthday together. We went for a walk in Balchik. There we saw the botanical gardens. Despite the bad weather, we enjoyed the view and the time together. While we were walking around we visited a wine house. Inside was an old vines collection. I saw wines from     1945, 1909, 1903, from different regions and grapes sorts.

 Friday we were given interesting tasks from one of the chefs in the university. We were divided into groups and we had to make a research for different recipes. I was in the pastry group. We made a research for some Indian desserts. It was interesting for me to read more about Indian food and culture.
Saturday I was working in the service section. The theme of the event was Black sea treasures.

Everything on the event went smoothly without problems. The decoration in the restaurant was beautiful and the atmosphere was exactly like on the sea.

Sunday I went for a walk to one of the many beaches around Varna. I took some conchs for decoration at my home.

Thank you for reading my blog and see you next week.

Hello, everyone. This week was normal. In the begging of the week, we had human resources and tourism lectures. Something new in the university routine was the marketing and the English lectures. We are still in the marketing introduction, despite this fact I think is very interesting.I am happy that we study English because I have a lot more to learn.
At the end of the week, we were testing the menu for this event on Saturday. I was working in pastry section.  It was strange for me to work again with my fellow students. It was nicer than before. We organised ourselves better. This helped us to finish faster and to work cleaner.

Together with my colleague Kristina, we were preparing the dessert. Part of the dessert was a chocolate mousse. The recipe worked well and we got an amazing result. The mousse was light and not too sweet.
Wiped cream for the mousse

 Another part of the last course were the orange pearls. They had a smooth texture and created a fresh feeling in the month.
The pearls are at the bottom 

 Unfortunately, I missed the event. Despite this, I think the menu was interesting and delicious.

Hello, everyone. One more week more has already passed. This week was the first of many events in the university. Two of my fellow students were in charge of the organisation.
On the first days of the week, we started classes with making the menu and the calculations. It was not so simple and fast, how I thought. Also, we created a video for better advertisement of the event. It was nice again to put the uniforms and to go in the kitchen.

On Thursday the students form second and third years met the students from the first year. The reason was we had to share our Internship experience. I was pleasantly surprised how many people were listening and asking questions. Also, I found the meeting very interesting. It was nice to hear the stories from the others of their six months experience.
Unfortunately, on Thursday the evening, I had fever. And I was in my bed until the end of the weekend.

Thank you for reading my blog and see you next week.

Hello, everyone. I had a wonderful week. Most of the time I spent in the university. We were given a task to write an assignment about the wine history in Bulgaria.  As a culinary student, I find the theme very interesting. I went to the library and took some books.

 Here I want to say, I have a big problem with concentration. And probably that is every student problem. Most of the students buy new pencils, notebooks, text markers all of this make them excited, by me, this is not working. Sometimes I just have the idea what I want to write and sometimes it is a mess.
This week we got two of our lectures outside on the beach. The greatest experience. On the beach, I had the chance to relax. This helped me to clear my mind, and took away my worries. Then I got my idea. I don't need school supplies. I need a nice beer and good talk with my colleagues.

For the weekend I travelled to my home city Plovdiv.
 I made a surprise to one of my friends for her birthday. We had a great party with a lot of smiles and cheers.

Thank you for reading my blog, see you next week.

Hello, everyone. After a short break, I am back with my blog. From now long I am going to share my weekly experience and feelings in the university.
On Tuesday was the opening of the academic year in Varna University of Managment. There I met some of my colleagues from my semester and from the next year. We had a great time together. We went to an Italian restaurant. Everyone of us shared his own adventure on the internship. It was nice to hear stories from people that have been through the same things like me.
After the lunch, we got back to the university and we took a selfie with the marketing specialist in Culinary Arts Institute.

On Wednesday we already started with the lectures. I found them really interesting. It is a bit hard to get out of the habit of doing more physical than mental work.
However, I am really enjoying the subjects that we have this year.
On Saturday I and my fellow-student Denitsa went for a market research on the local "Blue market" Varna. There we recorded information about the products and their prices.

Thank you for reading my blog, see you next week.
