Last week, I was able to attend an intimate cooking class from the talented, Jenny Evans. It was perfect timing for the holidays for me to brush up on my (much needed) cooking skills. The menu was perfection, and everything turned out beautifully. I loved attending the class, because I got to know the ins and outs from the expert, and secrets of the trade along the way. All the tips and tricks to cut/manage time and enhance flavor. My personal favorite; getting Jenny's stamp of approval for buying Trade Joe's pre-cut veggies. As Jenny put, "Save the hassle. A great way to save time and money" Well, count me in. I also loved hearing that she buys most of her gourmet recipe list from Trader Joe's (including the whole chicken). TJ in my opinion, is the easiest (and most affordable). Done and Done!
Along with a top notch menu that you can check out here and get the dessert recipe here, It was so nice to catch up with so many old and new faces at the holiday dinner party. Can't complain when being surrounded by a dinner table full of talented and inspiring ladies, feasting on a gourmet dinner, and topping it off with the perfect holiday setting.
