Last night my mom and I attended a private cooking class with a group of her friends. It was a warm summer night, and we dined alfresco on fried baby artichokes with lemon aioli, buttermilk and fresh herb marinated chicken, romesco sauce, and grilled summer squash salad with dill + feta. The meal was delicious, except between chatting and prep, we didn't eat until 9:00, which was quite a late dinner hour for this pregnant gal! We pretty much devoured our plates in minutes, and I'm certain I could've eaten another meal once I got home.
I've been fortunate to take quite a few cooking classes; from Persian cuisine to paella, Indian, Ethiopian, Thai, even croissant making. What are your favorite cooking classes to take? Do you prefer hands-on cooking class or just watching and listening?
