Raine is now in her second year of culinary studies at Madison College. Along with going to school full time she is a line cook at Madison's venerable Tornado Steak House where she works full time as well.
Looks like the photos were taken on Fish Filet 101 day as the first photo shows Raine rolling a piece of fish skin. In the above photo I can't tell if the fish had been filleted or not.
When you ask Raine "What's up?" Her response is always the same, "School. Work. Sleep. Friends" I don't get to see her much. So I really appreciate the photos taken by her friend Katrina who captures some amazing details in the day of this chef in training.
In Anthony Bourdain's book "Kitchen Confidential" he talks about his beaten, battered and scarred hands from a life spent in a kitchen. Looks like Raine is working her way there pretty quickly. Food prep and cooking is not for the faint of heart. Making a dinner for 10 people at home will not cause scars like this but cooking for 150 night after night, sure will.
I am in awe of this driven and talented young woman.
