Well, have you? If you haven’t, you need to go. It’s fun to go with your significant other on a date night too. One of the first classes I would recommend is the knife skills class. You learn to mince, dice, chop, etc. and you get an awesome chefs knife to take home. Each time I go, it has been quite a treat and I’ve always learned some really useful tidbits for cooking. Chef Shane and Chef Jackie in the Santa Clara, Utah store are the best of the best!! Just go to https://www.harmonsgrocery.com/classes to view classes, times and class descriptions. There are other cooking school locations in Utah too, but in the Santa Clara store, we really have some well rounded chefs–the cream of the crop. I’ve been to nearly a dozen classes there and each one has been terrific and has broadened my knowledge about creating a delicious meal.
Tonight my friend, Corinne, and I went to a “Summer Salads” class. We made a delicious Warm Salmon Salad Nicoise” and ” Orzo Salad.” So what exactly is Nicoise Salad? Technically, a Niçoise is meant to be a “composed” salad, with each ingredient artfully arranged on a plate in separate little piles, then drizzled with the dressing and that’s exactly what we did tonight. Oh and see that delicious dressing? It was incredible!!! We used a ratio of 3 to 1 oil to vinegar ratio, Dijon mustard, salt, sugar and some chives. Tonight we had a variety of oils and vinegars to choose from. We tried grape seed oil with a tad bit of truffle oil and we used pear vinegar. It was the best dressing I’ve ever tasted. Seriously. Oh, and look at those farm fresh heirloom tomatoes!! My fav!!
