So being in culinary school I thought I'd look for some inspiration from some of the forum members here and as a way to get a little portfolio goin.

Post up some pics of your favorite things to make a long with a Description.

Ill start:

Here we have some home made butternut squash raviolis with a browned butter sage sauce:

Here is a pan seared beef tenderloin with blue cheese butter on top with roasted garlic mashed potatoes and green beans
[IMG][/IMG]

Same as above but no blue cheese butter and asparagus
[IMG][/IMG]

I wanted to learn to make marshmallow so I used my sheet tray of homemade marshmallows to make little bit size s'mores
[IMG][/IMG]

Some corn salsa:
[IMG][/IMG]

Here's a monster burger....double cheese burger with canalized onion, jalapeno, bacon and a little jack danials reduction

Looks awesome! I'm suddenly very hungry...


I used to cook for Chicken Express and then Golden Chick.. Both fast food joints. I'm pretty sure I've cooked more chicken than most people even see in their life Does that count?

Very nice! If you don't mind me asking what are you doing now? I'm going for culinary and hospitality management but I'm not so sure I want to work nights weekends and holidays forever.

I learned to cook while camping, and grew up in the south, so my cooking reflects that. I make good (no, great!) soups and stews, and grill meat to perfection. (As you can tell, I'm very humble about it too).
On a whim, I entered a Cajun cook-off a few years ago. I won 2nd place with my Jambalaya, and crowd favorite with my red beans & rice.

My oldest daughter is in culinary/hospitality management courses now and working two part time/seasonal jobs in the field. I envy her in so many ways because I love food and love cooking.

Your stuff looks great, man, keep it up!

I like to cook and an old roommate of mine was a chef at an upscale hotel in the area. Another friend of mine worked with him.

Apple wood smoke cheddar, swiss, and montery jack cheeses:


Toast topped with burger topped with fried onions and mushrooms topped with fried egg covered in gravy:


Cream of crab soup:


Fish tacos:


Pork belly fixed Momofuku style:


Butter poached lobster tail on a bed of polenta and veggies. This was made by my roommate:


My roommate in the hotel kitchen:


Grillin' veggies:






My roommate with some dry aged steaks. We'd have dinner and vodka nights :


MONSTER BURGER! IIRC, it's 3 lbs of hamburger, two digiorno stuffed crust pizzas, 1lb of cheese and 1lb of bacon:

That sounds really good.

Some of the plates in here are making my mouth water.

We deep fry a turkey every year for Christmas and Thanksgiving.

I dunno it's not that I don't mind working nights and weekends it's just I don't thing doing the same thing nightly in a restaurant is my kind of thing. But then again in sure owning your own place is a lot different then being a line cook/prep. I like making new things and coming up with my own dishes.

You may prepare the same dish but everyday is deferent. I have kept almost the same menu for 6 years. It's all about being able to perform and push food out. My restaurant on a good night could do 22k. Constantly changing slows the cooks down. While it is fun to have rotating menu, in my concept it would not work.
Restaurant work is a way of life and it will make or break you! If you have never done it you don't understand. I would recommend reading Anthony Bourdains book Kitchen Confidential, it is awesome.
