This will be the last post of the year. I’ll be back home for the holidays eating lots of asian nom noms once again. I’m feeling rather anxious and excited at the same time. For this year has been exceptionally special. I’ve moved on from being in culinary school to the real world. From preppy chef coats and pants, sleek culinary tools and French culinary terminologies to t-shirt and jeans, rustic whisk, Sally (the crazy mixer) and American desserts. My vision had shifted so much that sometimes, I won’t allow myself to sit down, afraid that it will all sink in.
Along with this, I’ve gotten to known so much more about organic ingredients, herbs, spices and unique plants. The bakery is always involved with local farmers, producers and events. It’s always heartwarming to recognize a community of passionate people looking towards a farmer-to-table meal. Food, after all, is the soul of life.
The biggest event we did was VegFest, which we baked so many cupcakes our hands were trembling from icing them! A nerve-racking chef demo where we got to speak in front of a crowd. Plus, plenty of awesome food photography experiences.
I’m eternally grateful for having such a lovely bakery family. To share both laughters and tears. We ended the year with a fabulous vegan pot-luck. What is more homely than a dish cooked by everyone you love?
