I am teaching cooking class in St. Louis today. I have been a guest chef at Dierbergs Markets Cooking School since September of 2004. The classes are a lot of fun for me and my pupils. I love the interaction of the guests, just like I do at the inn. If we are not laughing the class is not sucessful in my view. I believe you have to have a sense of humor in life and certainly in the kitchen. I think my sense of wimsy combined with my belief in "no fear" gives me the latitude to be creative in the kitchen. I have learned if it works...write it down! If it doesn't, no big deal, there is always a next time. Happy experimenting to all of you!
Until next time...Cathy
