Thanks to Seattle Uncorked!

Last night I was a guest chef for Seattle Uncorked Wine Club's cooking class series. Founder, Sommelier David LeClaire allowed myself and 12 other students to take over his kitchen to cook 5 dishes from Eat and Drink in the Northwest summer edition paired with wines suggested from the book or similar choices.
  • Prawn and Avocado Salad with Cilantro, Orange & Lime Vinaigrette
  • Sautéed Morels and Asparagus with Soft-Boiled Duck Egg & Parmesan Crouton
  • Grilled Flatbread with Pepadew Peppers, Goat Cheese & Grilled Tomato Sauce
  • Pork Tenderloin with Fresh Cherry & Rhubarb Compote
  • Barbequed Harissa Flank Steak with Grilled Corn Salad

I had a great time meeting new people excited to learn more cooking techniques and try out some new flavors they may have not had before as well as eager to roll their sleeves up and get dirty! It was a lovely summer night with a lovely host, thanks everyone who came and cooked and tasted and sipped!
