Student Assessments

It's official. I have the coolest job ever. For the past two and a half weeks, my students have been doing their final assessments. Each student had to prepare an appetizer, a main, and a dessert. My job was to grade their work in the kitchen; cleanliness, hygiene, proper methods, correct uniform, use of knives, etc. After grading their work, I also got to assist with taste testing. Yum.

I was very impressed with the food the students prepared. Here are some example menus:

- Tempura, fish and chips, brownies
- Lobster cocktail, lobster bombay, banana split
- Chef's salad, fish curry, pineapple fritters
- Sushimi, stuffed chicken, tropical fruit salad
- Green salad, polynesian fish, banana foster

It was all delicious, and I had a super fun two weeks. Now, that the assessments are finished, the students have choir practice and cleaning everyday until graduation on November 24th. After that, some travels around the islands and America here I come! Can't wait!


  1. Great job students! We can't wait to see you either! God be with you.

    All our love.
