Cooking Class with Me!

Disclaimer - this is not a self-portrait - it is a quilt I made a few years back for I a cookbook I was putting together for my guild. Saucy gets a lot of attention!

Yesterday I hosted a cooking class at my home - I donated it as an auction item for my guild's annual auction - I had a total of 8 participants - what fun! Of course I was so busy teaching and preparing that I had no time to snap photographs - drat!

I love to teach cooking classes - I love talking food, sharing my two cents on nutrition (I'm a dietitian) and providing instruction on food science and food preparation techniques. I am seriously considering starting up a cottage industry teaching cooking classes out of my house - I have the prefect kitchen for it - all interested parties feel free to contact me.

Here's the menu from yesterday's class with links to the recipe - wish you could have been here!

Rustic Rosemary Tart on Puff Pastry
Roasted Asparagus with Pancetta Vinaigrette

Shrimp with Shallot / Tarragon Sauce on Wilted Spinach
Velvety Puree of Celeriac and Golden Potatoes

Grapefruit and Campari Granita
Lemon Thyme Shortbread Cookies
I love to cook and I love to quilt - thank heavens I don't have to pick favorites - there's room in my life for me to do it all - and more!

Addendum - many thanks to Joanne for the very fun gift - I love my apron and all of the comments from the class participants!
