Instagram has become a great medium for JWU culinary students to document their class projects, build their portfolios and capture life in culinary school.
Sophomore Darren Walls recently Instagrammed the final projects for Conscious Cuisine, one of the 3 labs (and one academic course) that make up JWU’s Wellness & Sustainability elective. His photos offer a fantastic chef’s-eye view of the intensity, boundless creativity, focus, and, yes, fun of being in the kitchen.
“Teamwork makes the dream work,” he writes on a photo of a student chef fist-bumping his instructor, Chef TJ Delle Donne.
On a photo of a student-created table setting, Darren writes: “This picture alone is one of the biggest things that drives me to become a better cook ... the creative mind of a Chef. Chefs know how most foods go together and how the colors contrast that makes plates beautiful and delicious.”
On another: “Are you as hungry as I am?” (To answer your question: Yes, we are!)
