Chef School where you get to drink and cook...

Went to a cooking session with Chef Nico of Chambar fame at the Dirty Apron Culinary School. I would highly recommend the experience. You cook a 3 course menu and then eat it, all under the watchful gaze of Nico and his assistants. The food is simple; so don't expect to learn anything to fancy. Then again, some of the best tasting food is simply made. Bonus: the lesson comes with your choice of white or red libations which lubricates the entire evening pleasantly.

The Menu:
  1. Seared Yellow Fin Tuna on a Tabbouleh bed with Baba Ganoush
  2. Buttered, pan fried duck breast with tamarind sauce and herb rice pilaf
  3. Chocolate Mousse


  1. Sounds like my way to spend an evening!!!

  2. Yeah, it was really fun. And chef nico has 14 years of michellin star experience to entertain you with too.
