What is Unsaturated Diversity?

Why unsaturated diversity? To be honest I have no idea. I thought of this phrase when I was in junior high and kinda thought of it to be a pretty cool phrase. But if you look into the definition of ‘unsaturated’ and ‘diversity’, the phrase doesnt actually makes sense. However, this phrase does describe my train of thought somewhat and if you’re good at psycho-analysis, you’ll prolly know how it goes.

Initially I wanted for this to be a place where I can put in writing my general experience and feelings but on second thought, it seemed somewhat messy and not straight to the point. Also, I guess I’m just too private to actually write unrestrained.

Therefore I’ve decided to write only on my culinary journey. That way, I reckon it would be neater, and at least my train of thoughts would be more focused. ^^ yeah, my mind wanders a lot, that’s how I go about things.

So there you go. This is me. Welcome to my culinary journey and I hope you will enjoy the ride as I honestly believe that my journeys are never straightforward and also they never come out the way I hoped or expected. You’ll soon learn why. ^^

How did I start to love cooking?

Oh and by the way, how did I start to love cooking? By watching my mom suffer at baking (lol). She was aweful at cooking and baking initially. However, my dad thought her to cook and she learnt to bake by herself. It was her self-perservation and determination not to allow failures from stopping her that she has become a much better cook and baker (we suffer a lot from being force-fed cakes, cookies, etc).  The deal was pretty much sealed when I had to start cooking for myself; I loved experimenting with food and finding out about the whys and why nots.

On a side note (and embarassing one at that), one of the main reason why I refused to help my mom in the kitchen (I chose instead to just watch from far, far away) is I’m a natural rebel without a cause. ^^ (Oh what a silly waste of good opportunity!)

Part 1 of My Journey: A Basic Patisserie Student at Le Cordon Bleu, Sydney.

At this point, I’m feeling pretty old and still with no accomplishments to show. I’ve been going through a lot for the past many years in Australia, to the point of depression but it seems like nothing could bring me down (I’m very optimistic ^^). Therefore, the past few years had me working on towards this dream of mine to study at Le Cordon Bleu, Sydney despite disapprovals from my parents (they still have yet to know the full story).

I have no experience whatsoever, and it was my first time making anything at school (I felt in love/awe when I kneaded dough for the first time). However, it seems that I’m doing rather well in it (and loving it!) and so my journey will go on.  This part is actually a big thing for me because this is going to be the start of a new me, or much rather the revival of my old self which has been buried deep within by depressing thoughts (I’m still optimistic!! ^^).

Also, why starting out with pastry and not cuisine? I have no idea why to be honest. I was interested in both initially but only the cash to do just one, and I merely followed my instincts (I’m proud of my instincts, they are good) and did pastry.
