Okay he is a genius, but he’s really not evil at all. Let me explain. This past September 2, we celebrated our third anniversary. I bought him a really cool clock for his office (a modern interpretation of the third anniversary gift is glass) and he bought me…cooking classes. For. The. Win.
Now anyone who doesn’t know me thinks this is just a little too crafty, a little too selfish, of my husband. But anyone who knows me knows this is the absolute most perfect gift. I love to cook! I am not, however, trained in the least. So the idea of spending 3 hours every Saturday for 6 weeks in a Viking kitchen learning everything from “Knife Skills and Kitchen Orientation” to “Braising, Boiling, Poaching and Steaming” just thrills me. Seriously. I’m weird.
Now I don’t aspire to be a chef — I don’t need that kind of stress — but I plan to continue to use food to show my love to family and friends for as long as I can. Therefore I plan to build a serious food foundation that will last a lifetime. That’s a tall order!
Stay tuned as I recap each class here on foodbitch.posterous.com!
