This week, I took a cooking class with a friend. Can I tell you that it was a wonderful night? I mean truly enjoyable....of course, the glass of wine was an added benefit. I don't really enjoy drinking...I would much rather have a latte or a milkshake. But, for some reason, this wine was delightful.
The class was taught by a cute little Italian woman and every recipe demonstrated was wonderful! I will make each recipe! We had a full course meal with a salad, antipasto platters, *amazing* garlic bread, homemade dressings with a a beautiful salad and two main dishes plus an amazing dessert. It was all cooked in front of us and then served to us by waiters. It was amazing and such a treat!
She also shared some great "tricks" in cooking and some fun utensils to use along the way! I learned how to use Parmesan Rhine and the *right* Italian way to boil noodles, wrapping a wet towel around a bowl, using water in a pan to cool off a ricotta cheesecake and how to cut a little chicken! I have never cut out the back bone of a chicken but I will! It was amazing and I never knew I could do that! It was worth every penny and more.
If they would of served me breakfast the next day...I would of spent the night! :)
