Welcome to I Love to Cook

Cooking is something I have always enjoyed. I learned to cook at the apron strings of my mother and grandmother. The experience of cooking brings me both pleasure and peace of mind.

Cooking Class at Sur La Table

This Friday, 1-7-11, I attended the Sur La Table Winter Bistro Classics with Le Creuset, instructed by Chef Martin Gilligin (Emma, Louise, & Joel).  What a fun experience.  A lot of fun loving cooks and a great menu.  We made Roasted Potato and Fennel Gratin, Gamay-Braised Lamb Shanks with Nicoise Olives, Thyme & Fresh Chevre Tart, and Dark Chocolate & Cherry Clafoutis (with flaky pie dough).  In addition we prepared a couple of additinal dishes - Cilantro/cucumber salad and Candied carrots. I have all of the recipes and have permission to post as long as we give apprpoiate credit to Sur La Table.  Please e-mail me for a quick copy and I will try to post the recipes here as time permits, since I would like to re-create the recipes myself before I actually post.  I would strongly recommend this course to anyone wanting to share a wonderful cooking experience.  There was not a lot of in depth training but the presentation of basic techniques that anyone could use and reproduce
