Today is the First Day of my Chef's Training

So, part of my longer term career plan is to work as a therapist working with people with eating disorders or disordered eating, particularly people struggling with weight issues or obesity. I am going to do further graduate work at Plymouth State University in New Hampshire, in the United States. They have a highly respected Eating Disorder Institute. See this link:

I am also working my way through the Associates of Arts Degree in Culinary Arts at the New England Culinary Institute, where I am a professor. See this link:

With knowledge about eating disorders, experience recovering from one, cooking and nutrition knowledge, I believe I will have deep knowledge, empathy and compassion to help people heal.

So, what is my first class? Knife skills. Here's to hoping I don't cut myself! If you want to learn more about knife skills, check out these books:

Make it a Great Day!
