Sinuses aside, the class was really alot of fun! I learned how to make an amazing sourdough bread from scratch (seriously, to DIE for!!) and a New England clam chowder that left me speechless! We also made a minestrone, a bean soup, and dinner rolls! It was all much easier then I expected! I got use a Wustof knife (but it wasn't a paring knife, Mar!)! And one of those thingies you use to scrape stuff off the table! And wear an apron!
One slight problem- I was chopping up an onion and my eyes just started pouring tears! I had never had that happen before! I may not be much a cook, but I have chopped up a few onions in my time, I mean, for God's sake? What else would I put on my lox? But for some reason, these onions really got to me and before I knew it, it looked like I was watching "Steel Magnolia's!".
I kept having to walk away from the table to wipe my eyes! Leave it to me to be the slow kid in cooking class.
I was also the only person in the class to giggle when he said he was using a Dutch Oven to cook the bean soup in. Hee, hee, hee! Dutch oven!
