As we usher in the long weekend, I got reminded of how much I am yearning to travel.
Gone are the days that I made use of each and every public holiday/business trip/school holiday to travel. These days, I am grounded by my obligations – obligations that I am glad to have the opportunity to fulfil.
So the best I can do is to do what I do best – REMINISCE
As I flipped through the albums of my 2013 travels….I came across pictures of a fun-filled team-building event in Prague -
EVENING COOK-OUT with Michelin-starred CHEF SEFKUCHAR ROMAN PAULUS. This was after a long day of meetings and we were told that an interesting night awaited us. Since the specified venue was the hotel ballroom, I thought to put on my best dress and footwear for the event. Alas! What a wrong move that was -__-
It was a night of progressive demonstration – Chef Roman would first demo a dish before we proceeded to do the same at our make-shift bench top. Afterwhich, we will consume the dish before moving to the next course – a total of 3 courses in all!
COTTAGE CHESSE DUMPLINGS in CINNAMON BREADCRUMBS with STRAWBERRY SAUCE – Should have been quite a good dish except that my team mate mistakenly used salt instead of sugar for this dessert. (Dear K, I think you may actually like this dessert because of the cheese component )
Being (fairly) fresh out of culinary school, this team building event definitely drew close to heart. The difference was that – I stood back, volunteered to do some unpopular Mise En Place (ie. chopping of onions and garlic) and opted to have lots of fun laughing at the antics of my colleagues.
