I just interviewed Chef Antony Osborne from the Culinard culinary schools. He is an amazing person who has traveled around the world cooking at some of the top restaurants in the world before becoming the Dean of the cooking schools at Culinard.
The interview is amazing especially if you're thinking about going to culinary school to enter the food industry. As the Dean of a top cooking school, Chef Osborne offers great advice for those interested in becoming a professional chef. He talks about what makes one culinary school stand out from the rest as well as what he hopes his students take away from their education.
As a way to introduce Chef Osborne to you, I asked him to send me a simple recipe you might appreciate. Here is what he said,
"I have attached my Green Fruit Salad recipe, which is perfect for breakfast or dinner on a hot summers day and so easy to make. I hope you enjoy it."
