Cooking Classes


Sur la Table’s spring schedule of Cooking Classes is now available online.  I’ve attended several of their classes and have had great luck with instructors and topics.  They use both their own set of chefs and guest chefs – many times those promoting new cookbooks will be on the schedule. 

Some classes are hands-on and some are demo style so if you prefer one type or the other make sure you check the descriptions and icons carefully.  In my area the most popular classes (especially those with guest chefs) will sell out quickly, so if you see something you’re interested in, don’t waste time – Register! 

Although Sur la Table started in the Seattle area they are now nationwide so check the information above to see if they have a class in your area. 

So far I’ve signed up for the Knife skills (I really want to be able to chop vegetables quickly without losing a finger!) and a Puff Pastry class.  Although, I make a decent puff pastry, if I do say so myself, more often than not I seem to pull it out of a frozen food case in one store or another.  Which is fine, there are some great pre-mades out there.  However, this class promises to show the quick and painless method that "real" chefs use! :-)   If there is a true quick method, I’d probably be more inclined to throw it together myself.  The instructors are local renowned bakers, so what do I have to lose? There are several other classes that look good, too, but that’s where I’m starting. 

It’s the new year – learn something new!

    Hey, thanks for dropping by! Check email for a better explanation of why I sent you that link. I was going to delete M from that picture but I actually didn\’t think that most people would be able to recognize her from that shot, so I left her in. Of course, since you know her….. Keep up the good work at 2nd Drawer! B
