I am a simple cook, I can make simple edible dishes, but it was time to pick up a little more. My goal is to be able to whip up a meal with what I have in the fridge. So, a couple of weeks ago, Lucy and I attended a cooking class at Calphalon Culinary Centre! The three hour class taught us proper knife techniques and other tips of the trade. For instance who would have thought, soaking your hands in water and then rubbing them on a stainless steel surface would be the remedy to get rid of the smell of chopped garlic, onion or even fish off your hands?! I never understood the purpose of stainless steel soap but now I do, ah-may-zing no??
On the menu was:
Goat Cheese & Roast Pepper Triangles
Herb Roasted Potatoes
Grilled Shrimp and Lobster
Fillet Mignion with Red Wine Pan Jus
Chocolate Espresso Mousse with Mixed Berries
Lucy and I loved this awesome experience and would love to do it again. Thanks to our Chef instructors Susie Reading and her amazing assistant Steve Wilson. Here are some pics.
