#16 Cooking Class

23 Jun

I’ve wanted to do this one since 2013. We were in Positano enjoying five nights on the Amalfi Coast and the food was so incredible that I was absolutely desperate to learn how to cook some authentic and fresh Italian food. We signed up for a pasta making class the day that we were leaving and our plans changed last minute and we had to leave early in the morning. Still to this day I don’t remember having a bigger melt down/tantrum/whinge in my life! Ha ha!

Cut to September 2015 and we were in London at L’atelier des Chefs thanks to a birthday gift from Nick. We were treated to lessons on making:

– Garlic tiger prawns with rocket salad and a lemon mayonnaise
– Chargrilled Sirloin steak with bearnaise sauce and sauteed potatoes
– Chocolate Pot with Kirsch soaked cherries

Have you ever tried making bearnaise sauce or lemon mayonnaise from scratch? A great experience, but I think we’ll stick to supermarket bought… what a loooooooong process!

I have to mention that I’m very proud of Nick for being one of only two men in the room – I was the envy of all the ladies getting my partner there 😉
