Tour of Italy

Earlier this year one of my resolutions was to cook more and so in an effort to accomplish my goal I bought a certificate to the cooking school I took a few classes at last year. It came to my attention a couple of weeks ago that I have never used any of the credits I prepaid for. Last night I returned to the Creative Cooking School and cooked my way through Italy.

The dishes we prepared were:
  • Bruschetta Toscana
  • Mixed Green Salad with Gorgonzola, Candied Walnuts, Shaved Red Onion and Balsamic Vinaigrette dressing
  • Sun-Dried Tomato Risotto with Fresh Basil and Parmesan Cheese
  • Chicken Marsala served over Homemade Pasta with Roasted Mixed Vegetables
  • Zabaglione with Fresh Berries (I only ate the fresh berries because of the alcohol in the pudding, but everyone else really enjoyed it.)
The class was attended by 10 people and it was the funnest group. Everyone was friendly, talkative and funny. It was a great way to spend an evening.

In a few weeks I will take a class to learn a little about French Bistro cooking and I am super excited about it.

Bruschetta & Green Salad

Risotto, Roasted Veggies and Chicken Marsala

This was my first time eating Risotto and it was definitely my favorite dish of the night.
