Yesterday was day 2 of my externship. I got to the Mousse at 1:00 and was quickly put to work brunoising (cutting into tiny squares) bell peppers and mincing enormous amounts of parsley. Just as I was finished, I was rushed into a van to go to a catering event. We drove for a good 45 minutes to a place called Dana Point, which is the farthest north I’ve ever been in Cali. We actually saw a beemer on fire along the way, totally crazy! We arrived and I assembled hundreds of little lime curd tartlets and did odd jobs to help the rest of the staff. We were very busy, the event was 1500 people!
This was a pretty ordinary party. There were GoGo dancers and a DJ in a boom box.
There were In And Out trucks giving out burgers.
Oh, and Billy Idol performed.
Pretty standard evening, no? 😉
It was a great time and I’m starting to make contacts. Networking is so important in this industry.
Sorry the picture quality isn’t great, but I was more focused on working than taking pics.
Off to the dog park!
