Our Menu for this class consisted of the following:
- Cherry Tomatoes Stuffed with Mozzarella and Basil
- Baked Honey Sesame Chicken
- Grilled Potatoes and Arugula with Dijon Vinaigrette
- Homemade Strawberry Shortcake
One item sounded better than the next!!
Gianna shredded the cheese; Joe and Abigail mixed up the dressing for the cheese, which included lemon zest, olive oil and basil; and I tackled cutting and seeding, what seemed like an unending bowl of cherry tomatoes! Grating fresh mozzarella is not easy, since it tends to be much softer than the store-bought packaged kind. So, eventually, Gianna just decided to chop it with a knife. Her knife skills were excellent, having learned and practiced during her week long cooking camp. Joe jumped in with chopping up the cheese and showed five year old Abigail the proper way to use the knife, and impressed all of us how well she did. Me, well I was still cutting and seeding the tomatoes.
I cannot think of a nicer way to spend a saturday morning! I am already making plans to take more classes at A La Carte with girlfriends in the Fall.
