Aphrodite, the goddess of love and wife of Hephaestus was a proud woman. The, definitely not dumb blonde, went against most stereotypes and hated people who disrespected women. She often set out to find the people of this sort and put them in their place.
Ever since I was little, I enjoyed being in the kitchen with my mom, dad and other family members. As long as I can remember, I was always there, trying to help out in whatever I could and what my family members would let me. When I was eight, I baked my first batch of chocolate chip cookies and ever since then I developed a passion and dedication for baking that has helped to teach many
The person that inspires me is my teachers, I'm inspired by many of my 6th grade teachers like my math teacher, my science teacher, etc. My parents and my teachers help me so much through my problems, and such good rule models. Hopefully, I can be like them when I grow up, so I can be an inspiration to someone else one day.
One person I personally know that inspires me a lot is my father. My father has always been very involved in my life and had a very positive impact on who I have become. He came to the United States when he was eleven years old with nothing. The English language was foreign to him and everything was being risked. The comfort of being in a place you have been all your life and having friends and family surrounding you was gone. Yet his parents knew this was what was best for him, so they brought him over. Things were not easy for my father and some of my family members either. They all lived crammed up in a one bedroom apartment. However, they were not discouraged. My father fought and fought for what he wanted to achieve. I admire him greatly because of how hard working he is. Everything he has accomplished today was thanks to his amazing work ethic. This is what really makes me want to be like him. If I am able to strive and fight like he did, especially with my studies, I have faith I will achieve all I want.
One of the chefs I identify is chef Francisco. He owns the restaurant La Cocina de Gabby. One of the struggles he had to go to was trying to provide for his family. And the one thing that stood out was when he was trying to fight for his house. And he said “ I will fight for my house and if they try to take it, I will keep fighting.” the reason I pick him was because struggles. Some of his struggles are hard to accomplish. But the one thing he does is he keeps trying. But everyone has a struggle. Some are hard to accomplish and some are easy. One of my struggles was when I was little, but I still find it a struggle to this day. The struggle was about my family. Mostly about my parents. And I know some people have bigger struggles, but this struggle in particular made me love cooking.
Anthony Bourdain, world renowned chef and television personality, in his autobiography Kitchen Confidential (2000), conveys his experiences working in the restaurant business-high tension and new stressors at just about every corner. More specifically in the chapter “Food is Pain,” he convinces his audience that the abilities to maintain concentration, handle stress, and keep pace with the quick movement of a high-pressure environment are extremely important. Bourdain shapes this through an anecdote of his past experience working under boiler man (Tyrone) at the Dreadnaught, with his development of ethos, use of imagery, and manipulation of syntax to not only draw in but appeal to a wider audience.
Randy Pausch was determined to finish his last lecture for his kids. He was determined to leave a little bit of himself for his children, so they could see what type of person he was and so they would learn the lessons he would have thought them throughout their lives. With his determination, Pausch was able to get many of his childhood dreams and more accomplished. He lived his life to the fullest and I would bet that if he hadn’t done so, we wouldn’t have had the honor and opportunity to learn about his life. I can relate to his determination, but only on a small scare. I have a passion for cooking and I am determined to follow that passion by any means possible. I have made changes to my life and education to support that life, but there have been some situations in my life that I’ve had to learn to adapt and deal with, to continue my dream. You could say I had to be resilient.
Everyone has encountered an individual in their life that that has greatly influenced them to be the person they are today. Some will find it is through direct family members, friends, or a public figure. In my own life, that individual is musician and poet Alex Turner. He has influenced me in a number of ways including; inspiring me to take writing seriously, introducing me to new literature, and teaching me the art of thinking before speaking.

All things changed my sophomore year with the decision to take culinary. I had finally found my niche in high school. Here I met the infamous Chef Rick! Chef is definitely not like any other teacher, he has no filter, which surprising is probably the reason that he is one of the best teachers at Sickles. He is real and up front and will make you become a hard worker. Culinary has taught me more about life than any other class I’ve taken. “Never be
I would like to say my greatest inspiration is Mrs Sica. She is so patient and kind to all of her students and is truly amazing. I hope that in the future I can change a child’s life the way she has for many of the students in her classes. I couldn’t thank her enough for allowing me to learn and grow in her classroom with her!
What makes a chef a “celebrity chef”? The author employs a definition to this question so well that made the unfamiliar subject familiar to me. Babilonia’s entire narrative is built on one single example, celebrity chef Emeril Lagasse. The author devotes her essay to define and argue his subject that we, the audience might not have ever thought of. The thesis statement illustrates her main point in defining a new king of chef a celebrity chef “Celebrity chefs have had a great influence on our culture: they have changed our ideas about celebrity and about the social status of the chef; they have redefined the kind of food ordinary people can have, and transformed the way men feel about cooking.” Celebrity chefs are opposite of the regular chef.
The book is highly informative and educational, and as Michael Ruhlman wrote I could feel his learned passion for the craving to become a cook. He did the greater part of the course, both preparing to be a gourmet expert and expounding on it as a writer. Ruhlman learned the fundamentals of cooking stocks, roux, vegetables, and sauces; also, he gained the experience of working the front of the house by waiting tables. Most importantly, he gained the knowledge of the meaning of being a chef to become a leader within the industry. You were expected to know the answers to all the questions in the Culinary Institute of American (CIA), and know why things happen the way they do. As chef Pardus would add, “you better know how to do it” (35).
Culinary art is a momentous part of my life.When I was around the age of nine I was living with both my mom and dad. I was always in the kitchen helping my mom cook dinner. I made baked ziti, empanadas, sweet potato pie, and other foods.When I was in high school, I lived with my father,and after my older siblings grew up it was just me and my little sister so I was responsible for cooking the meals. I was cooking for my family an average of seven days a week and I was never tired or bored, I enjoyed it. I developed a strong passion for culinary arts. I am passionate about it because it excites me, inspires me, and encourages me to open a restaurant.
