So here are 2 pics of the Mont St Michel, a famous abbey, totally surrounded by the sea. I've been there once and I must say it is very beautiful. The view from the top of the site is simply marvellous... especially when the weather is friendly. Well I've had that chance so...
I've chosen a day pic and a night pic. Enjoy.
That's beautiful. Thanks for the pictures.

These two are pictures from the Shetlands which are closer to Norway, but are a part of Scotland.

The first one is the Lerwick Harbour.



This one is from away from the main city in the countryside on a rare clear day.

The other two are from Northern Sweden.

Default Re: Where are we all from?

Well I'm back with some new pics. But not from a particular area. They're from the place I work at. Remember I'm working in a professional highschool which trains future chefs and future pastrycookers... As some of you have seemed curious about that in other threads, I've decided to make a special report here, so that you can have an idea of what it means for me to go to work... And yes, it is very hard sometimes coz there are too many samples to taste!!!!!!

Pics 1/2/3/4 are outside views of the school. My office is situated in the pic N°4, on the ground floor.

Pic 5: this is our cooking lab. The future chefs are trained there.

Pic 6/7: this is the pastry lab where the future pastrycookers are training.

Pic 8/9: those are examples of what our students are trained for...hope it makes your mouth water!

Pic 10: this is the restaurant room where they train for service.

All those pics are extracted from the site of the school, which is run by students. And no I won't give you the link coz they also took pics of me and it is not representative... Maybe if you beg...

Mmm, pastry! Haha, it would be so hard for me to work there, I'd go crazy with all the tasting!!! and hey, I'd like to see your picture... I'll post some of mine now:

1st= The view from my other house 30 minutes from the city. This place is called San Antonio and as you can see we're on a mountain.

[the following ones are bonuses]

2nd= Aw, that is obviously not where I live! That's from my trip to New York City this September. And that in the pink shirt is me!

3rd= Flower stand at NYC, me again

4th= My visit to Flushing Meadows! I went 2 weeks after the US Open had ended though... Grandstand was the first court I saw and the first thing I thought was: "Gastón played his 1st round match here this year!" Yeap

I have tons of pics from NYC if you want to see some more... I had never been there [I had never left this country for that matter] so I was ecstatic! Those pics in Times Square and the flower stand were on the very night I arrived. I was so tired but so happy!

Yes I must admit that sometimes it's hard...especially for the weight!!!! But don't worry, I've learned to be reasonable.... As for my pic, I told it was absolutely not representative...I wouldn't like anybody here to be scared! But I will do some and promised, I'll post them, as soon as I'll be convinced they won't scare anybody!

Hi there!

Well no, I don't train them myself. I'm no teacher and I'm no chef! Though some say that I'm gifted...It would be dangerous if I could not restrain myself from tasting! It is very hard sometimes but I consider myself successful! It reminds me of some anecdote. It was some years ago. I was talking with some of my students about what they had to revise for the next day. And they were dealing with pastry recipes. When I asked them what they had to do for their next class, they answered they had to do an apple pie. I made fun of them, telling that everybody knew how to do that! I teased them. And you know what, on the following day, during their class, they made a special pie for me, just to show me I was wrong. Their teacher made fun of me this time! That's what I call teasing for getting the best out of them! And I must admit that no, I had never eaten such a good apple pie!
