Food For Thought
This post is written by guest blogger Ms. Carol Cooper–Enjoy!
In case you’ve never been or you aren’t fortunate enough to have one in your city, Central Market is an extraordinary grocery store. It has just about everything you could possibly desire when grocery shopping INCLUDING a Cooking School. The Fort Worth Cooking School always has something deliciously going on each and every month.
Cooking Classes are scheduled with chefs from Texas and throughout the country. If you are a true foodie you can’t help but LOVE these classes. Not only do you get to eat delicious, fabulous food but you also pick up some helpful tips on improving your own culinary skills. These classes are perfect for girlfriends get-togethers, date nights or you can go alone and eat something wonderful and learn how to make it. It’s an enjoyable 2 to 2 1/2 hours with extraordinary food and its preparation as the main focus.
Recently I attended the class that featured Fort Worth Top Chef Blaine Staniford of Little Red Wasp and GRACE Restaurant fame. There was of course, delicious food, good conversation and just an all-around enjoyable evening. Chef Staniford was insightful, entertaining and passionate about his craft. Oh, did I mention the food.
Trust me when I tell you no one left the Central Market Cooking School hungry. The cost of the classes vary. For full class descriptions, registration information and to make reservations, visit www.centralmarket.com.
Bon Appetit, and remember “thisisyourbestyear”.
