I have never done a cooking class, but I have always wanted to. I lack the confidence to put myself out there, so to speak. Starting this blog was a huge step for me and after winning the first round of the recent Gourmet Garden Cook Off, I feel so much more adventurous!
While out with Joe recently, I noticed that the Pepper Tree Kitchen Cooking School had some interesting classes coming up. After a quick call to Brittany, we booked in to one. To quote the brochure:
Join Sarah De Nardi in creating bite size delights such as candied lemon and yoghurt tea cakes, baby vegetable tarts, chocolate and hazelnut meringues with raspberry cream, Tramezzi (Venetian Tea Sandwiches) and Blinis with horseraddish and hot smoked trout then enjoy a glass of champagne.
I am quite excited. I’m not good at baked items – that is more Brittany’s thing. I’ve never made a meringue before and have no idea with a Blinis is. While my first attempt at smoking fish was *ok*, Id love to know the correct method and timing. Baby vegetable tarts? I am totally keen!
All I can think of is roll on 11th October! I’m raring to go!
