The presenter was Craig Hobson. He is from Australia and is the executive chef at Le Cirque. He presented us two very delicious dishes. He made chicken breasts with shallots in saffron. Then for dessert he made a corn flan with honey vinaigrette. I learned how to cook chicken breast by putting it in a Ziploc bag with no air in it with orange peel and mints into a bucket of water at a temperature of 140f until it reaches 141f for one hour.
I loved this presentation, Chef Craig Hobson is very nice, and inspiring. He was also very knowledgeable with many years of experience. he was willing to answer any questions about how to make the foods and you could tell that he has passion for what he does. He explained it very clearly step by step. The dishes were amazing with a unique taste.
