Episode 7 Journal

What did you think of today's challenge?

I wish I had made the terrine more complex.

What was the highlight of the day's events?

I finished in time. We did not complete the challenge.

Are there any lessons you took away from today?

I need to study more terrines.

What was the most constructive or interesting piece of feedback you heard from the judges?

We did not receive feedback. Michael Ruhlman was so helpful! I love that guy.

Autumn is clearly most competent in today's challenges. Katsuji did three terrines!
