The Glamorous Life Of An Intern
I wish to make a note of reflection and appreciation.
I have been a very lucky young lady indeed. I have met the charming Head Chef from The Fat Duck, Jocky Petrie, and been given a sneak preview of the experimental kitchen. During my Food Science Research and Development internship with Tony Conigliaro at 69 Colebrooke Row, I met, my food hero, Heston Blumenthal. Just last week, I met one of the most respected writers in the world of Food Science, Harold McGee.
I have barely managed to hold onto reality through each of these experiences. When I began my career as a Food Scientist in my first year at the University of Leeds, I just had absolutely no idea what euphoric opportunities and experiences the future held. This just proves that persistence really is key in life.
Needless to say, I can barely sit still at the thought of what the future may hold. If it compares with anything that I have experienced over the past year, I am certainly looking forward to it!
Thanks to everyone who has given me support in my career. I would not be in this position in life without you.
