Olympic Trip Day 8

Tonight is our over-nighter day. We are going into the kitchen at 7:45a.m. and staying for a couple of hours or so or as long as we need to until our food is complete and ready to glaze. Then we will go back to the hotel to nap for a few hours, come back into the kitchen at 3:00p.m. and begin glazing all the food in a gelatin glaze (which preserves the food during display). Glazing all the food for 12 plates, 32 finger foods, 32 petit fours, a buffet platter, and a salad with three coats, plus the extra pieces (in order to ensure there is one PERFECT piece), plus burning the excess glaze off the food, then plating the food, takes approximately twelve hours. Then we have to oh so carefully transport the food from the kitchen to the next town to the event area and set up and have everything ready by 7:00a.m. It's a loooonng day (and night).

Please wish us luck!!!!
