The class took place down in the Vista at "Lets Cook". Including us two there was a total of 8 people in the class. It made things nice because we got more one on one time and didn't feel as if we were rushed. Your able to bring in wine or beer of your choice if you'd like so that's kinda nice, although we didn't and just stuck with water.
On the menu for the evening was:
*Broiled Peach w/ Mascarpone Cheese
We got started making our pasta dough first. Which turned out to be much easier than I had though. Using a Kitchen Aide we stretched out the pasta, cutting half of it into fettuccine. We used the other half to make the ravioli shells, which we stuffed with pork & ricotta cheese. The hubbs was such a sport and really in to everything. It made my heart warm to see him enjoy the class as much as me.
On to the pizza's, the chefs had already prepped our dough. We had to roll it out into a pizza pie shape and load it up with our choice of toppings. There was everything from pepperoni, black olives, fresh basil, chopped onion, sliced tomatoes, mushrooms, egg plant, bell pepper, different cheese's & seasonings. Every body raved about how good my pizza look. Hey what can I say, I love a good pizza.
While waiting on our pizzas to cook we enjoyed a fresh salad that was prepared before we got to class. A mixture of several greens, a homemade dressing topped with some black olives, a dash of salt and pepper. It was pretty tasty, I'm picky when it comes to salad dressings but this one passed my test. lol.
Our pizzas turned out so good, I kept wanting to eat more and more. But reminded myself we still had our pasta / ravioli dish to try. We decided to only cook a little of ours and bring the rest home to freeze for later. Everything turned out so good, the food was fabulous. The other couples in the class were really nice, offered suggestion on other outings around the area. We will definitely be going back again for another class in the near future. I think I might look more into regular cooking classes, after all it is on my 30 before 30 list.
PS: the dessert tuned out ok, the cheese on top was better than I though it would be. I still don't care much for peaches, lol. But at least I stepped out of my box and tried something new.
