We had the most incredible day yesterday! Lunch at Shadows Restaurant on the Hudson River, followed by a presentation from Tom Champoux a fantastic motivational speaker. Alomost 5 minutes allocated then for us to change and head of to the CIA (the Culinary Institute of America) for a tour of the school and dinner in one of the training restaurants - the Ristorante Catherina De' Medici. Four courses starting with Mixed Italian cold cuts, moving on to crepes filled with spinach and ricotta, main course of red wine braised beef with polenta and sautéed spinach and chocolate mousse terrine with orange sauce to finish. Drinks in the hotel bar followed, and a very late night was enjoyed by all!
