Culinary Basics at Viking Cooking School

Duke and I signed up for a 5-hour Culinary Basics course at the local Viking Cooking School at The Factory... and it was time well spent!

I think the biggest "aha" moment for me was when I learned how to hold a knife and properly chop an onion.  I'll never buy them pre-chopped again!  It's actually kind of fun.

We made salmon, stuffed chicken, green beans in a shallot vinaigrette, basmati rice, vegetable soup, chicken stock, and chocolate souffles.

I think we're actually going to start making our own stock at home, especially since I have my Grandma's old stock pot.

The time went quickly!  It was definitely fun to be in such an amazing kitchen with Duke.  It was a great daytime date, and I know I will be headed back to cooking class in the future...  I'm already signed up for a macaron class in February.

    1. We had a lot of fun! Viking is definitely pricey, so I don't think we'll be attending it as a couple as often... but I'm already signed up for three more courses!
