This past weekend I took my first outdoor class, called Rendezvous Under the Stars. I'll write more about the specific class and and the great recipes in later installments. Today I just want to recap some of my other classes and just tell you all that taking a class with the Chopping Block is a ton of fun -- even if you have just the slightest interest in cooking.
My favorite Hands-on classes at the Chopping Block - the ones where I had the most fun or have pulled some of the recipes into my everyday cooking are:
- Sushi Workshop - Fun class and it showed how easy sushi is to make, but not something I've tried at home yet - not something I will probably ever make at home.
- Chicken 101 - A few different chicken recipes and a great glazed root vegetable side dish that quickly made it into my recipe box.
- Aphrodisiac Appetizers - Valentines Day class was a ton of fun, but again nothing made it into my recipe box.
- Midnight in Paris - By far my favorite class from the Chopping Block. I've made Coq au Vin and Dark Chocolate Pots de Creme at home a few times since class...well, I made the pots de creme a LOT since class - so easy, so great! This was another Valentine's Day event, shortly after we returned from Paris.
I have a passion for cooking and I love these classes. They really do cater to various interest levels too. If any of you are nervous or at all apprehensive about taking a class here rest assured, you will love it. If you ever need a cooking class buddy, let me know!
