I love to cook....that is an understatement. I'm certainly not perfect, but I'm always willing to learn a thing or two and I find that cooking classes renew my energy, my spirit, and give me more confidence in the kitchen. I consider myself a life-long learner of many things....but cooking is at the top of the list!
There are several wonderful places in Colorado to learn techniques. Of course, the best are in Denver, but that's quite a drive away for a class....but I may someday! Here nearby, however, is a wonderful shop that has classes. I got my classes mixed up, however. I thought that Wednesday night's class was French pastry....that's coming up. This class was a classic French dinner for two taught by a French chef who teaches other chefs all over the US. He used to own Chimney Park restaurant in Windsor, but now has other ventures. It was a wonderful class....I wasn't able to take pictures of the food; however, I did take pictures of the shop so that you could enjoy it along with me! In future posts, I'll tell you more about the menu and hopefully will be able to recreate some of the wonderful things he made!!
|From my parking spot to across the street where my class took place|
|Ahhhhh....my class awaits!|
|LOTS and lots of mixers...but I'm afraid that none of them is quite as pretty as....|
|They have an outstanding collection of cookbooks on the 2nd floor|
|wonderful candles, rugs, baskets|
|and a tin ceiling....I love this!|
|They carry many hard-to-find baking ingredients|
|And baking dishes, pie pans, and such from all over the world. I love their quaint wood floor, too|
I had an amazing night of learning and tasting....I came home with a full tummy....and hopped shortly thereafter into a hot bath after driving home on such a cold night.....
I wore my Aussie boots that my youngest daughter got me for Christmas and kept them on all day at work! I had happy toes!!
