Alright, so I do know how to cook a bit… more like, basic stuff. Salads, sandwiches, quinoa, spaghetti, fish tacos, I got you!
What I don’t know how to cook is… pretty much everything else.
I’m not brave enough to cook for anyone else, especially not my boyfriend who is actually the biggest foodie I know. So, instead of embarrassing myself trying to impress him with my yummy avocado sandwich or my quinoa salad, I decided to surprise him with a Cozymeal date. This way, he and I could learn to cook a few dishes together (phew, not so embarrassing anymore).
I set the date, picked the course and chef, and mentioned that a surprise was in store for him. Although a surprise was also in store for me (nervous).
The date came and it was time for us to head over to our Classic French Dinner cooking class with Chef Alejandra.
Before I mention what we actually did, can I just add that Cozymeal was the easiest and most modern way of scheduling a cooking class. You basically visit their site, check out reviews, browse through dozens of courses and chefs (in your area), and book. If you’re a vegetarian or a pescatarian (like me), you can let the chef know ahead of time.
Back to the class. We arrived at our destination where three other couples joined us in what felt like “Paris” (w/French accent).
I think it’s safe to say that my boyfriend led us in the cooking aspect of the class. I led in drinking wine and taking pictures.
Now, what exactly was on the menu?
French onion soup
Roasted ling cod, ratatouille, provençal tomatoes
Bourbon vanilla crème brûlée
Valentine’s Day is coming up and although classes might already be booked for those dates, a Cozymeal gift is always an option.
