How ironic that exactly a week before my dates with 9
6 Michelin stars, I contract food poisoning. Where did I catch if from? I have my theories, but no solid evidence toward any one restaurant / meal.
Luckily, I think it was fairly mild. Just needed to sleep. And sleep. And sleep. I slept 12 hours straight last night, not to mention another 8 hours worth of dozing during the afternoon / early evening.
I even missed my first practical class due to sickness. But the thought of making a lobster sauce that was half butter made my stomach do somersaults. Not to mention risotto that had enormous amounts of butter. Or a fennel puree that had butter, cream and vanilla! Combine all three together you and get one giant knob of butter clogging more arteries.
So it's probably just as well that I missed that practical. Better to save my stomach (not to mention excess calories) for the excitement of next week.
Where am I going? Stay tuned to find out!
