A Little About Me

New York, New York
As a newly married woman, it has become my mission in life to learn how to cook. Gone are the days of picking up sushi and ordering curries. In order to jump-start my education, I enrolled in the Institute of Culinary Education's Fine Cooking I course where I learned the basics, from roasting to boiling to mousse-making (ok, maybe not that basic)! I've attempted to replicate some recipes - somewhat successfully- and create a few of my own. This blog is for friends and foodies and is intended to document my cooking adventures (and occasional fiascoes). Enjoy the pictures and bon appetite!

Sara's Pictures

Here are some more photos from the Fine Cooking Class I've been taking this week. Because my new friend, Sara, had an actual camera in class (as opposed to my Crackberry one), I've borrowed a few of her shots for my entry!

Happily pouring batter over cherries to make Clafouti, or custardy tart

Needed a little help getting every last pinch of batter out of that bowl

The beautiful, golden-brown, finished product!

A certain someone did not like the way I smelled after eating an entire bulb of this sweet roasted garlic

Arborio Rice Chicken Soup -- one of the best things we made (shocking, I know)

Birdie Bondage

Cutting the roasted rosemary chicken was not the easiest thing to do

........ and now for some photos I took today using my Blackberry...... not exactly high quality of food porn, but it'll do .............

The most amazing salad Nicoise -- and I made it myself! Nothing like some salty anchovies

Poached Egg; Before

...... and after

Classic French Gruyere Omelet; Before
