I got a hat!!

Last night was the very last thing I had to go to complete my graduation requirements.  Graduates had to decorate their own table, showcasing themselves.  Employers came around and we had to basically just sell ourselves (in a very non-sexual way, might I add).  Since I am not really looking for a job right now because of FREAKIN' AWESOME opportunity that I have received (more on that later), it was pretty lame for me.  I had to keep turning down employers. :/ At the beginning of the "portfolio show", we received our new chef coats that have our names on it (fancy stuff...) and then at the end there was a hat ceremony where we received our chef hats.  We were informed as the ceremony began that we had to say a few words about how awesome culinary school (most particularly, the Art Institute of Salt Lake City) is.  Lame.  Anyways.  Here's some pictures of it:

My sweet-a table

It was fun to be there last night to see you get your hat. Your table presentation was the best one there. Congratulations!

I don't know how all that food tastes, but it sure does look gorgeous!
