Jurassic night

Hello, everyone. This week was fulfilled with a lot of emotions. We had an event at the university with the theme "Jurassic night". The dinner was for kids with parents. Unfortunately, now is the season for different viruses and a lot of the reservations were cancelled. With the help of our chef, the second of two sittings was full.
 I and two of my colleagues were responsible for every part of the organization. On Wednesday we did testing of the menu. That helped us to make the menu better. On Thursday we did the shopping.
I was very excited on Saturday about the dinner. Until the service, I went through many different emotions. On the first sitting showed up only one of colleagues with her kid. She told me her kid liked the menu and that made me very happy.
On the second sitting, most of the guest were students from the Culinary Arts Institute. Everyone had a great fun and enjoyed the menu.

It was a three-course menu. The starter was pumpkin croquettes with yoghurt sauce.

 The main course was pork ribs with BBQ sauce and Pont Neuf potatoes for garnish.

 The dessert was brownie dinosaurs, chocolate egg, chocolate leaves and swiss meringue.

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

Trip and pizza

Hello everyone. I had an amazing week. It started with a field trip with my classmates from tourism lectures. We visited the museum of glass. It was very interesting to watch how people were working with the glass.

The next attraction was the Ovech Fortress. We were climbing around twenty minutes. Then we reached the fortress and the amazing view from the hill. Between two hills it is placed the small city Provadia. The guide told us interesting facts about the city and the fortress.

It was tiring walk, therefore we took a break. I had homemade sandwiches and that brought me back to my school memories.
However, after the break, we went to the history museum of Provadia. There we saw many artefacts and old traditional clothes.

The next stop and the last stop of our trip was the Stone forest. It was amazing and beautiful.

On Saturday we had a pizza event. I was working service.

 We received a lot compliments about the food and the atmosphere.
Thank you for reading my blog and see you next week.

Hello everyone. My week started well. On Monday I spend my day at the university. Together with my colleagues, we started with the organization of our event with the theme "Jurassic Night". We prepared one poster and discussed parts form the menu. On Monday evening I went to one restaurant called "Tapa". For the first time in a restaurant, I tried very good risotto. Most of the times I got an overcooked rise. Also, I love their fresh made potatoes chips. I didn't miss the chance to have a glass of nice rose.

The rest of the week I finished all the work that I wanted to. I am happy to say that I have my weekend free. Except for Saturday evening, I was helping to the other group with their event with the theme "Old Balkan Night". The atmosphere was impressive my colleagues gave their best. When I entered the restaurant I felt like a kid in my village.

The food was amazing. The old dishes were represented in a modern way with very good result. People loved the meal they had.
Thank you for reading my blog, see you next week.

Hello, everyone. In the begging of the week, I was in a mood for baking. I made sweet and salty muffins. I am happy to say that they were delicious and healthy at the same time. Lately, I prefer to bake my sweets alone because I can control the quantities of fats and sugar.

On Friday I and my colleagues made the test of the menu for the Saturday event. One of my colleagues was making a test for eatable helium balloons. We had a great time with a lot of fun, while we were testing the balloons.

On Saturday was the evening with the Tapas and Cocktails event. We started the mise-en-place early in the morning. The begging of the day included a meeting and a breakfast.

 We organized our work well, therefore the afternoon we were ready with the preparations. On service time I took care for the cocktails. Unfortunately, I have a photo only from one of the glasses for the beer cocktail called Michelada.

 The second cocktail was Caipirinha. The last was Daiquiri, which was in the form of specification, served with the dessert.

 The service went well.
Thank you for reading, see you next week.
