The student catered meal was a total success, with a large turnout of 42 people, including quite a few guests.

The food was great (menu below)  and the event ran  smoothly.  It was such a fun night!  I attended the dinner as a guest, and was able to see it from a completely new perspective.  Many Living Light employees attended, along with some family members of the  students.  Friends and family are always invited to the catered meal, but some of our students travel from far away, and their friends and family aren’t able to make the trip. It’s always exciting to have new visitors for the event.

We had a surprise guest, Kimmy Everett, who is a Lifemax Independent Distributor.  She is in town to speak to the students on  Saturday morning about Lifemax’s product MILA and was invited by Cherie.

Student Dawn Bitterman had her son and daughter-in-law as guests.  They’ll be in town for the weekend, visiting from Martinez, California in order to support “Mom”.  They’re actually the reason why Dawn is here at school, since her son got into raw foods and inspired the whole family.  Dawn says that once she tasted raw chocolate mousse she was hooked, and now she’s becoming a raw chef!

    As we come to the end of the first week of chef the students are a mix of emotions. They’ve been busy all week learning new recipes, working on  demos to present next week, creating new recipes and absorbing information on how to create their own teaching business.   

    Working Hard on the Catered Dinner

    Today is one of the hardest days, but also one of the most fun!  They get to see Jennifer Cornbleet in action, giving a Why Raw? talk to the public, then they’ll enjoy a full brunch, including delicious scones. They’ll watch some talks, get a tour of the Living Light kitchen, and an inside look at how to use the audio/visual equipment at Living Light.  This is all to prepare them for next week when they become the teachers!  Right now they are working on the pinnacle of the week, the student catered meal, which they’ll serve tonight to 40+ guests.  It’s very exciting but also a lot of information to absorb.  I’m very proud of how hard they are working!
