So Monday night's cooking class at Kitchenco. was all about utilizing good, fresh ingredients. Our instructor of the evening was Chef Donnie Ferneau of my favorite restaurant Ferneau - located in Little Rock's historic Hillcrest area. Some of my favorite meals are on the Ferneau menu: Escargot, Ahi Tuna, Beef Carpaccio, and Rack of Lamb. I've spent at least 4 of my birthdays there.
Thanks to Ashley Carson Photography for all the fabulous photography shown on this blog post from this evening. The Carsons - Ashley and Jason - are my great neighbors who are known to create delicious meals for me and my family, as well as often hosting cookouts for the rest of the cul de sac. It's great to have people to talk about food with!
Chef Donnie had picked up some fresh tomatoes from the Farmers Market at the Little Rock River Market on Saturday. We love going down there!
He also brought in some pretty Patty Pan Squash that his friend's aunt grew in her garden. The class is just like an episode of Guy Fieri - there's food, he talks about techniques such as cutting skills, and he tells a few stories. Very entertaining. Did Guy Fieri audition on Next Food Network Star, and has his stardom surpassed Rachael Ray's? What a lucky guy!!
We talked about using a good knife, or a serrated one to cut tomatoes. He showed us where to properly hold a knife when cutting. Never refrigerate tomatoes, and fyi the yellow and orange ones are lower in acidity.
The fish went down on the grill.
Hey that's me in the purple back there. Then there's Kristi to the left, Matt, Jason, and Kinsey!
