Looking back on this project, I learned how to:
- Cut certain vegetables correctly/efficiently
- Use certain items in the kitchen like electric magnetic stoves (I use a gasoline/fire one at home), and a zester
- The variety and uses of knifes
- names of different sizes of cuts
- How to plate foods
- how to taste things correctly
Knowing what I know now, I would make the muffin batter differently because the squash in it made the muffins really chewy and sticky, probably due to the starch in the butternut squash, which was probably activated by the intense stirring that happened when the batter was in the food processor. The mistake I learned from the most was that butternut squash does not go well with chicken, because it just simply doesn’t taste good as a sauce on top of chicken and I will never try to put the two together again due to the horrible taste from the last time I made it. One skills I think I can use in the future is plating, because it made my dished look way better, probably to the point where it looked better then it tasted. One thing I am proud of doing is plating, because it looked aesthetically pleasing and I really enjoyed the process of doing it.
