Friday was Fresh Farm to Table class at the Viking School in Atlanta. This class was shared with some fun area bloggers. Our class was guided by an easy going chef Donna who hopefully will be the next food network star. In our groups eyes Donna is already a shining star as a teacher, chef, and a genuinely nice person. Honestly, Donna is so worth standing in line for a cookbook signing in the future.
Our lesson included using fresh locally grown produce to help with the carbon footprint on our environment. We were taught the proper way to hold and sharpen a knife. When asked what knives I own I had no idea. I just remembered that they had a little man on them. A Henkles knife man to be exact.
While we were all cutting the fruits and veggies I was making the teacher a bit nervous by waving that big knife around in my hand while talking to Sue of Rue-Mouffetard.bogspot. Sue was talking and waving her knife right back at me. New York & New Jersey Italian gals are just raised to talk with their hands. Good thing we agreed on how to make our puff pastry tart!
HERE. I guarantee that you will enjoy Sue's blog and make sure you scroll back to her Lamb post. Sue has some incredible stories and a great sense of humor.
Thank you Sue for the adorable apron and also for the delicious box of cookies.
*Since my knife skills are not the best I guess my dream of working at Benihana is not going to happen any time soon. I guess I should not quit my day job as the the knife thrower at the Big Apple Circus!
