You are probably used to me mentioning that cooking is not my specialty. It just does not come naturally to me. I can follow a basic recipe, but I have no natural instincts in the kitchen. Well, this year I decided to do something about it. I like to try new things every year, and I usually try to work in a class or two so this year I signed up for a cooking class; The Fine Art of Cooking Series at Orson Gygi, to be precise. It's a six week series covering all the basics: knife skills & sauces, starches, fruits and vegetables, chicken, fish, beef & serving.
I was on the Gygi website preparing to write a Salt Lake City Spotlight post, when I checked the class schedule and noticed the series started the next day and had one spot left. They aren't offering the class again until June and we might move before then so it seemed meant to be. I knew the class was great because my friend Jeff took it and has become a wonderful cook so I signed myself right up. So every Tuesday night you can find me here in the class room located in the middle of the store (have you ever seen such a big island?).

cool options. I really want to sign up for the French Macaroon class. Want to take it with me?
