French Cooking 101
I highly recommend to people to adventure often out of your comfort zone and take classes in instruction of any sort.
Last week, I decided to take a class on culinary essentials at the last minute. During class, we descaled, butchered and roasted and learned good tips and better timing skills.
Here are a few of the recipes we cooked on our own:
Several Different Frittata’s
Cream Puff Dough-so easy!
Hors D’ Oeuvres & Canapes
Cream of Cauliflower Soup: Delicious!
Roasted Chicken, Grandmother Style
Creme Caramel Custard
Blood Orange Frozen Fruit Souffle
Striped Bass Over French Lentils: Delicious!
Roasted Rack of Lamb with couscous and roasted veggies
Potato Au Gratin: made for us since time was short
Artichoke Heart, Fennel, Watercress Salad w/ Grapefruit Citronette & toasted walnuts
Other recipes were demonstrated due to running out of time. I also got a quality chef’s outfit and amazing kitchen tools so I was able to throw out all my cheap knives
which I always made fun of.
The best thing about taking these classes is that it’s a fun adventure (though somewhat exhausting) and you get to meet lots of new people that you have something in common. We all bonded over this fast-paced, intense cooking class and now we are all keeping in touch via e-mail chatting about cooking apps, recipes, work, and life.
