I'm so completely ecstatic now that I can indulge in a real relationship with all things edible that I didn't know where to start for a while. I bought cookbooks on a whim, I took some cooking courses through Community Education and learned a little (and I mean a very little), I've baked many things including 72 cupcakes which were actually successful, and several things were which complete fails.
Last week I took a Ravioli-making course at La Bella Italia in Petone and first of all, I have to say how much I love that restaurant-in-a-store-with-a-cooking-school. The food is amazing, you can buy Italian ingredients and deli items like cheeses and prosciutto, and it just feels like a little slice of Italy. This class was no exception - we were welcomed with some bubbles and nibbles of Italian variety, which I am of the opinion that some kind of adult beverage is essential to any good cooking class, just as it is when you make dinner! Right?
|Make a well in the flour and crack eggs directly into it.|
|Filling made with pumpkin - delicious.|
|Rolling out the dough, lightning fast!|
|What a drinking game this would make if you took a shot after you sealed each ravioli!|
