Check out my coverage of the Best of Boot Camp at the Culinary Institute of America on the Rivard Report. http://therivardreport.com/chef-state-of-mind-off-to-cooking-school-i-go/ I finished Day 1 today and it was pretty intense. We focused on fundamentals – sauteing, pan frying, deep frying, roasting, braising, simmering, etc. Looking forward to Italian cooking tomorrow. We are going to make garganelli. Don’t know what that is? Neither did I until today. It’s a handmade pasta! Yum!
