While taking the day off from the kitchen Sunday night, I hear someone jump out of their chair and in a very excited voice tell me I need to enter this. This what? Well, that response ended my day off in the kitchen….not such a bad thing for Deb I must admit.
Well, to back up a little, you all are pretty familiar with the fact that I have now rented space as a test kitchen for putting together my first cookbook. Well, I have finally moved all my equipment to the test kitchen, which as it turns out is not so good. When presented with the challenge of creating a dish in 24 hours or less, with 3 ingredients chosen by Top Chef winner Stephanie Izard and RedEye Chicago (Virtual Kitchen Stadium 2), my challenge was what the heck was I going to use to create what I was tasting in my mouth!

As I said, I’ve been cooking for 40 years, but have never been classically trained and so I was a little unsure which class to take. So of course, I decided it would be a great idea to take both the basic and advanced chef’s boot camp. So two classes it would be - 5 days in each one. After weeks of waiting, I arrived at the beautful CIA campus in Hyde Park, NY.
