I feel like Russian tonight?!

It has been a couple of months since I volunteered at the Central Market cooking school, but it was so good to be back. I worked Friday night for a Private dinner party featuring Russian Food. The class was presented by the ever popular CM House Chef Vance. And although we couldn't drink Vodka, a think a good time was had by all (including the class crasher). CM Chef Paul and one other volunteer also worked. So it was an absolutely great group to work with! I just love those guys!

Here is what we served:

  • Pel'Meni (Meat dumplings served in broth)
  • Cheese Stuffed Chicken with Fig Conserve (I made this one)
  • Beef Stroganoff (Bef Stroganov) (I made this one)
  • Salad Olivier (Salat "Olivie") - Poor Terry, so much work!!!
  • Turnips with Malaga Wine Sauce (Repa s Sousom iz Malagi)
  • Breaded Cauliflower (Tiortykh Sukhariaki)
  • Apple Dessert with Cinnamon and Wine (Kholodets iz Iablok)

To be honest, I was expecting quite a bland menu, but everything was so tasty. A truly enjoyable evening, although my feet were a little sore (out of practice).

I found out today that I'm working the Sunday evening "Istanbul: A Food Lovers Paradise" class. It was a great class last year, so I'm looking forward to trying Ozlem's new menu.

I'll keep you posted! :)
