The days of sleek leather bags and purses have been gone for a while.
At the Culinary Institute of America, my bag of choice is a washed out Central Market canvas bag that accompanies me to class every day.
Here are the contents of the bag:
1 binder with Garde Manger course outline, recipes, paper, notes
2 side towels - one has burned holes through it (they don't give us extra, and i refuse to pay $7 for a new one)
1 cap from a gel green pen - it's a mystery as to where the actual pen is
1 tube of hand lotion that looks like toothpaste
2 tubes of lipgloss - never know when you might need some shine to flirt with the chef...just kidding..maybe
1 apple - the school has been getting these really delicious crunchy and juicy apples
