A Bit from a 2009 Sunset Abandoned Building Adventure...

This building is located in the county of Massac...  I had the opportunity to photograph it in 2009 on the "Laidlaw Sunset Adventu...

Pictures of Food... Taken at a Cooking Class... By a Woman Who Can Barely Make Toast...




.. Monday evening as we were getting settled in from our day here at the House on Pooh Corner, Evan asked me if I'd like to "do something" Tuesday night - maybe "get something to eat"...

I was standing on the Patiocho smoking a ciggy and we were talking through the screen... "Sure, what sounds good?"

"Weeell, Artisan Kitchen is having one of their cooking classes... Do you think you'd like that?", he asked - very hesitantly, knowing that I can set a kitchen on fire while making a grilled cheese sandwich...  I laughed and laughed and told him that it actually sounded like a lot of fun and I knew the food would be fantastic regardless... so yes...


..
Tuesday evening we arrived at Artisan Kitchen... Evan having not only having gone to this specific event a few times, but having attended culinary school in Memphis was waaaay ahead of me on this one.... I was nervous .. overwhelmed with the underlying fear that I would do something terribly idiotic and embarrass myself AND Evan... catch the kitchen on fire, ruin the food, the possibilities were endless...


..
After all of the pre-registered students arrived, we were led into the kitchen; where everything was 'mise en place'...  "Mise en place" .. that's an official cheffing word, you know?  It means the measured out ingredients and supplies or to have your mess in place ... Like ... sometimes when I'm cooking dinner at home, which is rare - because I'm banned ... but sometimes if Evan's craving my manicotti, I'll say - "I'm gonna go in here and set up my mess..."  


..

Anywho... Our messes for each dish were set up ... and just as I would have expected, I was assigned to boiling water and assisting on the pasta salad... It was as if these people had heard of me before I arrived, because the chef didn't even let me light the burner... I was very pleased with how it went though...

I learned a bit about whisking and I am now totally prepared  to make a pasta salad on a moments notice!
