Cooking class experience at Publix Aprons school Alpharetta
Yammy! My first-ever cooking class, a wedding gift from one of my family friends, was a fantastic experience! I read an additional note to the gift where it said what dishes we would cook, but I didn’t create any expectations. One of my recipes for genuine happiness is to enjoy a moment as it unfolds and have zero expectations before that.
This cooking class became an enriching experience for me. I knew that cooking was a form of art, but I never practiced it as that. At home, I cook simple meals with the goal to eat healthy, and only sometimes do I experiment using new recipes. Before visiting a cooking class at Publix Aprons culinary school in Alpharetta, I didn’t perceive cooking as a form of aesthetic entertainment. But as with many other activities, it all depends on the level of your open-mindedness and how you look at it.
Cooking class – experience magic.
While listening to chef Neelma and her colleague, following their step-by-step instructions, I felt magic in the air. In an instant, something ordinary turned into a unique process of mixing flavors, cutting vegetables, tasting sauces, and communicating. There is something special in real-life experiences: getting ready, driving, entering a place, hearing kind welcome words, looking around a new space and noticing peculiar details, anticipating to start cooking, and later enjoying the food sitting at the table. Cooking class is a delicious way to socialize. In a creative cooking process, total strangers become friends, at least for a short period of time. And maybe that’s already enough. Taking how busy we all are, trying to complete hundreds of tasks at a time, having those 3 hours of genuine culinary joy is a chance for a break, to slowly inhale-exhale and live.
That evening we cooked: Baked Gruyere, Crab and Artichoke Dip; Roasted Red Pepper Hummus with Baked Pita Chips; Blue Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms; Mozarella, Asiago, Parmesan, and Prosciutto Baked Cavatappi; and Dark Chocolate Pumpernickel Bread Pudding. The wine was an excellent addition; I had red Merlot and my husband Pinot Grigio from Biltmore mansion.
Now I added cooking classes to my list of creative-enriching experiences.
