It was only a matter of time before the man became restless with tweaking internet recipes.
So he sauntered off to a proper cooking class with a human to give out tips. Importantly, he wanted to savor the experience of being in a professional kitchen with many many pretty kitchen toys to drool over.
He spent 2 happy hours at Shermay's Cooking School watching guest chef Elsa Van der Nest demonstrate the finer points of preparing Italian meals and tasting the dishes.
The man took notes. Lots. He came back glowing and all chatty. And of course with a big bag of veal stock and other not-easily-found-in-supermarket ingredients bought from the retail shop.
As he typed the handwritten notes into the desktop, he eagerly scoured the website for the class schedule to the next few sessions.
At this rate, I think he will be mighty interested in a serious stint in Paris or Pasadena. It will be a really fun way of studying!
I'm already fairly certain that our next vacation up north would include some Thai cooking lessons.
