Chefette is very excited! She just been offered a 2-week work placement during December with a contract caterer, working in the kitchens of a large PR company based in Canary Wharf. It will be for work experience only (meaning no money... yet), but will be something to put on the cv, and a chance to see how life works in a real kitchen with 700 customers. Start date is 5th December. Will keep you Loyal Readers informed of my adventures, natch.

Also have found out the date of my final practical exam will be Tuesday 29th November, so I'll have a few days of downtime before the work experience starts. In some ways I'd have liked a later date for the practical (more practice time!!), but I suppose this way I'll have less time to stew about it, and of course some time to get the Christmas cards / shopping underway.

That's all for now. Ciao.

Hi Margaret
Love reading the blog. Why do I get the impression that drawing a pheasant doesn't involve a pencil & paper?
Huge luck for your exams. You go, girl!

Thanks, Annalisa.
Yep, as you may have guessed, drawing a pheasant means [Warning to those who are squeemish, stop reading now...] pulling out the guts, and reserving the heart, liver and gizzard.
Mmmmm

Who are the 700 customers? Employees of the PR firm or clients?

The 700 customers refers to the number of staff at that firm. Surely we won't be serving all of them every day (you know how PR people love to go out to lunch), but still looking forward to a few busy services.
