Hello, my fellow bloggies.
I just wanted to check in before we head out to our cooking class tonight. We are headed to Eatz up in West Hollywood.
How adorable it this place?
From the Eatz website:
EATZ offers extremely personal cooking classes in a fun dinner party environment. Our small class size enables us to teach in a totally hands-on fashion — which means you get to cook (and eat!) each and every item.
And, to prove to us all, it is never too late for a career change. The owner’s bio… (also, courtesy of the Eatz website)
After practicing law for a few years, Niki decided to follow her passion for cooking and went to culinary school. She received her culinary training at Kitchen Academy in West Hollywood (now called California School of Culinary Arts Hollywood), and loved every minute of it! She’s had a major love for cooking since she was a kid, and remembers cooking crepes for her family and reading cookbooks as a child. She loves to cook, entertain, and teach…and her mission was to combine all three with the opening of her business. She started EATZ with the goal of giving each student a truly
hands-on cooking experience. Not only does she want everyone to cook as much as possible during class, she also wants to bring the joy of cooking to the classroom by encouraging her students to experiment and have fun with the cooking process. Come meet her at EATZ and awaken your inner chef!
How freakin cool does Niki seem? I can’t wait to meet her . What an inspiration to us all! And especially since she went TO cooking :).
Tonight, we are attending An Italian Affair with Mike, my brother and his friends.
Here is the menu we will be cooking up:
Join us for a fun night of cooking and feasting, Italian style! These dishes are not only classic and timeless, they’re absolutely delicious. Buon appetito!
– Rosemary Focaccia Bread from Scratch (drool!)
– Mussels in a Saffron and White Wine Broth
– Stuffed Artichokes with Sweet Soppressata and Provolone
– Wild Mushroom and Red Wine Risotto
– Strawberries and Cointreau Tiramisu
– Wine: Sangiovese (heck yes!)
I will do a full recap of our experience at Eatz, most likely Monday night when we are back in the tundra.
After our class, we are headed out in West Hollywood. SO EXCITED!!!
Peace and love.
Have you ever been to a cooking class before? I have been to the Cooks of Crocus Hill back in Minneapolis. We went to a ‘simple sauces’ class that we quite delicious. However, it wasn’t a hands on class which kind of stunk.
