Vegetarian Cooking Class

I went to another cooking class last night with Kathryn Joel, she is amazing! This class was on how to cook vegetarian. I am not vegetarian, but I think it's important and very handy to know how to prepare different dishes, especially vegetables. The class had nine of us (I went alone) and there was only one guy. It was a wonderful evening of wine, amazing food and meeting fun new people. It is, quite possibly, my most favorite thing to do on a night out alone.

Roasted Pepper Crostini


Mesclun Salad with Roasted Beetroots & Sherry Vinaigrette


Learning to make crepes


Our class. 


Buttercup Pumpkin Soup with Garlic & Chilies


Crepes with Ricotta, Spinach & Fresh Herbs


Orecchiette with Walnuts & Wild Mushrooms


Sticky Toffee Pudding. (The absolute highlight of the evening!) It's humble looking, but this beast was to die for! 

By the end of the night I felt like I not only understood food a little bit better then I had when I arrived, I also felt like I might actually blow up. 
I love learning to cook, I think everyone should know (by memory) at least 3 recipes. I feel so happy when I am cooking. When I make something out of a few ingredients and people love it..nothing beats that accomplishment. Going to this cooking class makes me want to throw another dinner party. 
Maybe that's what I will do in November. Yes, that is a great idea, I will have another dinner party!
