I love everything about cooking. I love to be in the hot kitchen filled with the smell of rosemary being crushed, the odor of the pastries coming out of the oven, the Béarnaise sauce simmering in a pot ready to be drizzled over fresh Alaskan king salmon, and all the entrees being plated for the customer. But most of all I love the atmosphere of the kitchen and am awed by the speed at which every dish is customized for each diner. I could talk all day about how the culinary arts are such a humbling, difficult, and rewarding profession. My passion for cooking is why I believe it would be a wise choice to accept my application for entry into the highly esteemed Culinary Institute of America.

When it comes to citizenship and the ability to work with others, I excel. I am never too harsh nor too lenient toward others. I try to deal fairly with all and am open to others’ opinions. I follow directions very well and do what I am told while still trying to infuse my own creativity into the food I cook.

My strongest point in the kitchen is my ability to use the equipment for its intended purposes. I work well with melon/cheeseballers, whisks, blenders, pans, and especially cutlery. I use only the finest Hitori Hanzo cutlery and take the utmost care in cutting, dicing, mincing, and chopping with speed and precision while maintaining a safe cutting environment. When it comes to the speed of productivity, you can find no one better.

In my mind, my most profitable skill would have to be my enthusiasm and willingness to try new things. Cooking is a skill that can never be perfected no matter how hard you try but the knowledge I want to obtain will help me in the kitchen more than anything else.

The CIA is such a prestigious school that I would be honored to attend. I promise to be a student who will live up to its high…...

...Punishment in America America has a unique justice system, like no other in the world. During the creation of the American colonies and the building of a nation, America took ideas of justice from their British heritage. Corporal punishment was the idea of dealing with criminal issues. America has since changed its view on punishment, early responses where considered brutal and today the view is more for rehabilitation of the offender. If a law is broken or a crime committed, the offender should be punished. The question that has lingered for many centuries is how harsh the punishment should be. The early Americans relied on public shaming for punishment. The intent was to teach a lesson to the offender and education would likely prevent recurring criminal activity. Some of the common practices for punishment were public whippings at the towns whipping post, brandings such as an A on the forehead for adulteries, cutting off ears, tongues, or fingers for liars and thieves, and placing offenders on the pillory or a stock for the townspeople to throw rotten vegetables or rocks at. For more severe crimes such as murder or rape, criminals were punished with execution by public hanging. Imprisonment was not as common. Early responses to crime seem to be extremely brutal, but the idea was to give a punishment as closely as possible to the crime. In the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, the English would also send criminals to the new American colonies to remove them from......

Culinary Graduation

...If you would have asked me five years ago where I would be now, I never would have imagined I would be graduating baking and pastry school, embarking on my career as a pastry chef, and launching my own cake decorating business. I first began college as a premed student in Northern Kentucky. Four majors later I found out about the Baking and Pastry program at the Art Institute and I realized baking did not have to be just a hobby. The program helped me recognize that I could have a career in a field that I have an immense love and passion for. I began the program in October of 2009, eager to learn all that I could about my new field of study. I was anxious to acquire the techniques that I watched everyday on the Food Network and excited to one day create the masterpieces that these Chefs have done. My first cake in my introduction to baking class was simply decorated with a vine of pumpkins. Through the classes offered in the Baking and Pastry program, the instructors helped expand my knowledge and skills. During my second quarter at the Art Institute I was able to make a primitive fire place scene out of bread and as Easter Bunny with a basket make completely of sugar. Each class was specific to techniques used to create exquisite showpieces and cake creations. After my third quarter in the program, I had experience making many classic European tortes and made a box completely out of chocolate. My fourth and final quarter was my favorite of my Baking and Pastry college......

Culinary Arts: Basics

...Culinary Arts: A Piece of Cake Culinary goes back to the beginning of time; we’ve always had to eat. Cooking is an art, and many different countries and cultures create their very own way of making their cuisines. So, in the beginning of time, how’d they make their food? How has culinary developed as a profession? These questions and many more will be answered to you. At the beginning of time, humans ate whatever was available to them. They didn’t have fast food restaurant or fancy Italian restaurants. They had to hunt, and eat their prey or findings. Basically we were just savage beasts trying to survive. But, it did slowly start to develop from there. Humans would find berries and fruits and mash them up to consume them. This started what would become an enormous profession in today’s world. Over the years, culinary has improved dramatically. It really began to take off in the United States in the years of the 1800’s (vocaboly.com). “…The very first cooking school in Boston was teaching the art of American cooking as well as preparing the students to pass on their knowledge to others in turn” (vocaboly.com). Everyone has to learn somewhere, and this was the first school to really kick everything off and set the flow for future cooks to become professionals. Many students were taught there, to share and use the knowledge that they have obtained out in the world. It’s incredible how only one school started such a phenomenally large organization today. “The first cookbook......

Institute of Medicine

...In the face of an ever-changing health care system, as nurses, we have no choice but to change as well. The Institute of Medicine (IOM), an independent organization with a mission to, “Serve as advisor to the nation to improve health,” created a report outlining major categories of change necessary so that nurses can meet the changing health care needs of the United States (Institute of Medicine, 2010). This report, titled, “The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health”, will be the focus of this paper. This paper will look at the impact of the Institute of Medicine’s report on nursing education, nursing practice in primary care, the impact of the report on the nurses as leaders, and how the author of this paper will change her practice to meet the goals of the report. One of the key points in the report states, “Nurses should practice to the full extent of their education and training” (Goeshchel, 2011). This report fully encourages nurses to never stop learning, and to prepare themselves to maintain a high level of knowledge in their field. The IOM report also follows this key message on education with recommendations for moving forward. One of the recommendations is that as a profession, nurses “increase the proportion of nurses with baccalaureate degrees to 80% by 2020” (Goeshchel, 2011). The next two recommendations are that nurses “double the number of nurses with a doctorate degree by 2020, and ensure that nurses engage in lifelong learning” (Goeshchel...

...argues in favor of federalism and the maximum decentralization compatible with given social conditions, which would be an ever-shifting demarcation line of freedom. Robert Johann Background: Rydberg was the son of Sven R. and Maria Anderson Rydberg. After completing the Gymnasium at Halmstad in 1873, he entered the University of Lund, from which he received a bachelor’s degree in philosophy in 1875. He continued his studies at Lund and was granted a doctorate in mathematics in 1879 after defending a dissertation on the construction of conic sections. In 1880 Rydberg was appointed a lecturer in mathematics. After some work on frictional electricity, he was named lecturer in physics in 1882 and was promoted to assistant at the Physics Institute in 1892. Rydberg married Lydia E.M. Carlsson in 1886: they had two daughters and a son. After provisionally occupying the professorship in physics at Lund from 1897, he was granted the appointment permanently in March 1901 and held it until November 1919. He was elected a foreign member of the Royal Society in 1919. Works/Writings/Philosophy: Johann seeks to elaborate on the nature of philosophical inquiry through the method of Pragmatism, more specifically Ontological Pragmatism. This method will measure the truth of philosophical inquiry through what it leads to in experience or practice. Inquiry can be either scientific or philosophical, depending on what it questions. Scientific inquiry questions the world outside man, while......

Culinary Arts

...Nick Sciarrino December 8th 2014 Culinary Art 3rd Period The Truth about your Food Imagine the chicken you are about to eat running around on a farm free and happy, right before it was murdered and put through the food processing business. Well this chicken you’re imagining is far from happy and free, it’s actually the opposite. This chicken was cramped up in a dark crowded house with thousands of other chickens. No light and no space for these poor chickens. However the real issue here is how cheap processed food is the only thing low income families can afford. These families are not getting the nutrients they need. But since they cannot afford healthy organic food they are put in a situation where there is really one option, and that’s to eat the unhealthy processed food. In the movie it showed a farmer who grows organically; he is not working for a bigger company. They interviewed people who come and buy his food and all of them travel a long way just to come get this organic food. Low income families cannot make this trip mostly because they don’t have money for gas or even the food he’s selling. This farmer doesn’t want to be bought out by a big business because he knows his food won’t be organic anymore. These big businesses come into small farms like his and make an offer hard to turn down, and then they will run the farm their way, which would be processing all of it. This means, they lose the nutrients in the food and fill it with artificial flavor......

Culinary Revolution

...The Culinary Revolution was a movement during the late 1960s and 1970s, growing out of the Free Speech Movement,[citation needed] when sociopolitical issues began to profoundly affect the way Americans eat. The Culinary Revolution is often credited to Alice Waters, the owner of Chez Panisse restaurant in Berkeley, California; however, such claims are sometimes contested and the movement attributed to collaborations of other individuals. The mantra of using fresh, local, and seasonal ingredients at Waters's Chez Panisse, as well as other similar "New American cuisine" restaurants, has greatly changed food served in restaurants and at home, thus creating California Cuisine and a broader movement in the cuisine of the United States. Contents   [hide]  * 1 Alice Waters * 2 Chez Panisse * 3 Counter-claim * 4 See also * 5 References * 6 Sources ------------------------------------------------- Alice Waters[edit] Waters developed a new view of the importance of food during her first trip to France in 1965. She began to see that some of her peers deprived themselves of good food. Waters is known to believe that "It’s not enough to liberate yourself politically, to liberate yourself sexually—you have to liberate all the senses." She believed that eating together was a socially progressive act, one that was under threat from the fifties American—TV, frozen-food culture.[1] Waters introduced to America many foods that today may seem commonplace, such as......

The way nurses practice will directly need to change how it provides quality patient care. So with nurses being the largest component of the health care system, the role nurses play on the frontline and behind the scenes will need to change. In 2008 The Robert wood Johnson Foundation and the Institute of Medicine (IOM) did a report entitled the “Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health”. Within this report recommendations are made to describe the areas in nursing where change is needed to allow nursing to provide optimum nursing care. Three of the areas discussed are how primary care is given by nurses, the need for ongoing nursing education and the development of nursing leaders participating in all areas of the development of health services. Nurses are one the most visible heath care providers you encounter when you think of within the acute care setting, hospitals , urgent care centers , etc. Related to primary care, nurses play a role from admission to discharge. The IOM states that “Nurses should practice to the full extent of their education and training (IOM, 2010).A large...

The Ceo Institute

...The CEO Institute Bill Knaust BUSI 630 FHSU “An effective training program needs a high-quality program design to maximize trainee learning and transfer of training. Program design refers to the organization and coordination of the training program.” (Noe, p. 193) Doug Conant became CEO of Campbell’s Soup in 2001 in the midst of a tumultuous time for the company. Campbell’s Soup stock was hitting rock bottom and “in Conant’s words, the company had "a very toxic culture." Employees were disheartened, management systems were dysfunctional, trust was low, and a lot of people felt and behaved like victims” (Duncan, 2014). To change the culture, Conant implemented the CEO Institute to “create a meaningful leadership experience for its participants” (Noe, p. 228). The design elements of the CEO Institute follow the three phases of the program design process. Using the design process allows Campbell’s to teach and train employees through learning which refers to a permanent change in human behaviors, and competencies that are not the result of growth processes. Transfer of training refers to trainees effectively and continually applying what they have learned in training to their jobs. (Noe, 152) This entire process is based on the adult learning theory, how adults learn. Phase 1, pre-training, involves preparing, motivating, and energizing trainees to attend the learning event. Phase 1 also involves ensuring that the work environment supports......
