Gold Weyrling
Name: Alyena
Age: 18
Why do you want to be a Baker or a Cook?
My parents are both Bakers at Benden Hold. I've loved spending time in the kitchens since I was little.

Name a food and list one safety procedure for growing, harvesting, preparing, or storing it.
Sour cream: like most dairy products, sour cream should be stored in a coldroom and discarded if it develops any mold, a pinkish tint, or starts to smell bad.

Name a kitchen tool and how to properly maintain or use it.
French knife: to properly use a French knife, keep the tip to the counter or cutting board and lift the handle to chop the ingredients.

Pick two measurements (either volume or weight) and list the equations to convert between them.
8 ounces = 1 cup = 1/2 pound

Name a cut of meat, veggies, or fruit and what tool(s) you would use to make that cut.
Slice (fruit): a paring knife is used to slice fruits such as apples or pears; to make even slices, a knife with a granton edge is preferred.

List a primary ingredient (e.g., a vegetable, a meat, etc.) and name three herbs or seasonings that go well with it.
Apples: cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla.

Name an alcoholic beverage and list what kind of meat and what kind of vegetable dishes it would go well with (either as a pairing or as part of the cooking procedure).
Dry white wine: poached wherry breast (meat dish) and char-broiled asparagus with basil-oil and goat's cheese (vegetable dish).

List the ingredients and their amounts of your favorite soup or stew (using Pernese terminology/ingredients in place of Terran ones).
1 3/4c vegetable stock
1 medium onion
3tbsp butter
2tbsp flour
14oz canned tomatoes
2tbsp tomato paste
salt and pepper (to taste)
1tsp finely ground sweetening
6-8tbsp prepared basil pesto

Describe the baking/preparation/cooking instructions for your favorite bread, pasta, or pastry.
Sift flour and salt together, then cut in shortening until dough crumbles to the size of peas. Sprinkle water on while tossing and stirring dough to evenly distribute water; add enough water for dough pieces to start sticking together. Divide dough in half; flatten both halves into balls and then flatten to 1/2-inch thickness. Smooth edges. Roll out each half into a 10x15 inch square; cut into 5-inch squares.

Combine sweetening, berries, apples, almonds, orange fruit rind, orange fruit juice, water, cinnamon, and klah grounds in saucepan; simmer until mixture is thick (about 5 minutes) and allow to cool.

Place one heaping tablespoon of cooled fruit filling on each square. Fold squares in half, seal edges. Prick tops. Brush with milk and sprinkle with sweetening and cinnamon.

Bake in hot oven for 12-15 minutes and cool on a wire rack.
