At my internship site yesterday my partner and I made frittata. It's like an omelet. We used a variety of vegetables and eggs, and handed out samples to the public. A lady that usually stops by to buy fruits and vegetables tried our sample and she liked it. She gave us a compliment saying, "You guys cook really well, I love it." One of the best things I love about my job is seeing people come back every week for a sample of a different recipe we make.
My experience with Teen Battle Chef has been going really well. I thought it would be a good idea to take it a step further after I completed the program in December, so I applied to become an intern for teen battle chef. Being an intern is exciting. I met new incredible people. This helped me open up since I can be a really shy person. As a tbc intern, it's not always about cooking, but knowing different methods for how to cook healthy food, and how we can influence others to do the same. My site is located at a youth market in Queens, NY. Other interns work at a restaurant, or even a garden. I don't look at this internship as a job because it's something I like to do and something I enjoy being in. I am really glad I was accepted into this opportunity because I am the only one in my school doing this for the first time, and most definitely not the last.
