One of the few things I asked for this past Christmas was gift coupons to a local cooking school. I have driven by the school a number of times, visited their website and always wanted to take their classes. The older I get the less "stuff" I need and I thought this would be a fun alternative to a traditional gift.
My loving brother Scott gave me the certificate for Christmas and on August 7th, I completed my second course....Chicken, Chicken, Chicken. The first class I took was "Knife Skills" which doesn't sound very fun, but it was exceptional. I took the knife skills class back in January and it has taken me eight months to complete my second course. But like the first, this one was exceptional as well.
With one professional chef and 8 students ready to go we made 4 chicken dishes: 1) Herbs de Provence Chicken 2) Roasted Dr. Pepper Chicken 3) Chicken Roulade (stuffed goat cheese chicken) & 4) Proscutto wrapped Chicken skewers. Each dish was outstanding and would impress any dinner guest, but my favorite turned out to be the Herbs de Provence Chicken--it was a little burst of France right in your mouth. I don't think I have ever eaten that much chicken in my entire life, but I now have a few more dishes to add to my aresenol which is always a good thing. For my next choice...which class should I take now?
