Tita Mwanzia Summer 2018 Blog

My goal in the summer quarter was to push myself harder in the kitchen by trying to work on my speed. When I first came to Kendall, my speed was not to par with standards. However, over time and with practice, my speed so far from the time I came, has shown remarkable improvement.
In my Banquets class, I experienced pressure to execute dishes to perfection. In order to be successful, the criteria was to produce a certain amount of food that would fit the number of guests that was provided to you. Bear in mind that I had to consider the people who had dietary needs and make adjustments to fit their needs. Given the number of guests and the quantity of the ingredients, I had to rectify the recipe that was being provided to me in the moment. From this class, I have gained the skill to visualize the customers’ perspective on the presentation of the plating and get their raw, honest feedback.
I am highly grateful to be a part of the Kendall College Trust. The scholarship has helped me with my financial status and allowed me to focus on my education. I am looking forward to the upcoming quarter to improve myself further. Thank you for this opportunity.
