I promise this is my last food post until my regular weekly one. It has been a week of going out for birthday celebrations and now, a gourmet cooking class.
A friend of mine has been going to this one for six years. She had told me about it and how much fun it was, and a few months ago she invited me to go with her. It is a once a month class and yesterday was the first time it worked out.
The lady who runs the cooking school is a gourmet chef and has been all over the world learning her craft. Her home is gorgeous and well you know me, I couldn't not take any photos. To get to her house it is in the countryside, and you have to drive down the longest dirt road I have ever been on in Virginia.
We divided ourselves into small groups to tackle the three courses. It was a haddock dish with a beautiful salad which you can see in my first photo. It was a bit difficult taking more photos than these as being new I didn't want to be too cheeky.
So much fun and sitting down to eat the meal we had all prepared was the icing on the cake, so to speak. Including our host and my friend, there were ten of us. I had been told by my friend how nice and friendly everyone was, and by the end of our meal I felt we had gotten to know each other very well. I will look forward to going again.
