After each cooking club night I put my head on my pillow and think how lucky I am to have spent the evening with such amazing women. There’s a saying that every women needs a wife, so imagine what these 6 women can create in one evening.
We make absolutely delicious foods, learn tips and techniques, drink lots of wine and laugh excessively. From time to time we’ll invite the men and actually it worked well in our favor one year, when the men did a night for us on Valentines. They went completely over the top, with rose petals, candles, champagne in hot tubs, oysters, masseuse, incredible dinner and we even got goody bags complete with a compilation of love songs! Aahh food, it brings out the best in people!
Well we just made it, oh so yum!! Now I can’t wait for the tomatoes to come from my garden, so I can make a tomato, mozzarella and homemade pesto salad. Tip – on the pesto, try it with hazlenuts instead of pine nuts, it’s so much more yummy.
to which they added fresh thyme.
Will you be making cheese again?
Most certainly. We made goat cheese ricotta and lemon cheese with herbs and the 30 minute mozzarella. I used the whey to make pizza dough. I want to try the yoghurt and sour cream and have to muster up some courage to try one of the more complex cheeses. The recipes in the back of the book are also amazing, so we’ll try a few of these at a future meeting of the cooking club.
