Today was crit day and let me just say a few things about this day before I share my dish. Crit day is pretty intensive, you have an hour to prepare your "crit dish" (I don't know what to call it). So you are pretty stressed because if you are like me then you stress a lot about bringing all the ingredients that you need and you forget your knife and cutting board (strike 1). Also setting up is pretty time consuming and I have 8am classes (strike 2). Then all of the instructors are walking around asking you what you are making and that really puts the pressure on (especially if you are not used to people watching you cook). But with all the stress it was fine, I am a bit over dramatic at times.
SO now on to the dish. I made a peach cobbler, with fresh peaches, sugar, brown sugar, corn starch, lemon juice, and vanilla. A rice pudding with milk, sugar, vanilla and salt and a lovely crust (secret recipe) with cinnamon and sugar sprinkled on top.
But describing this dish wont mean much unless you get to see it.
TOP VIEW of the AMAZING crust!
SIDE VIEW! YUMMMY LAYERS!!
AND of course on the plate for the wonderful judges!
I loved the dish and I had great feedback from classmates, (even though they have nothing to do with my grade) lol.
Well that is all for now, tune in for the next crit assignment.
CHOW for NOW
