Class for Cooks!

6 Jun

our starter for the night
cherry tomatoes with homemade basil oil
I had a blast! hehe (:

and trust me. no matter how good a cook you are.
attending these classes would surely teach you something!

so the menu of the night was:

1) Tataki of Chateaubriand with Miso Foie Gras Sauce
2) Wagyu Foie Gras Shepherd’s Pie Topped with Truffle Mash
3) Kahlua Tiramisu

it was my first time trying raw beef to be honest.
I didn’t really know if I’ll like the taste
BUT! it was so good! haha.
i really really liked it.
especially the miso foie gra sauce.
really complemented the tataki.

the beautiful tenderloin that was seared on the outside.
just to keep it’s shape when being cut.

the whole tenderloin was sliced thinly and placed on a nice glass plate
presentation is everything! (:

the miso foie gras sauce.
really superb.

looking all colourful and pretty.

merv putting the finishing touches.
lemon juice! hehe

Vanessa’s turn to teach us the next two meals!

she allowed us to taste theingredients in it’s original state.
so that we knew how they tasted before incorporating into the dish.

whisking the egg whites till they were fluffy and stiff!

11 egg yolks!
whipped till it’s pale and creamy

then start the layering! (:

till the top!

and this goes into the fridge to be nice and cold
before being served (:

this is just. heavenly to smell and of cos taste!
and it was mixed with the mash for our shepherd’s pie!

all smooth and ready to go!
