This'll be short and sweet. For this lesson, we only did one thing. Then we had to pipe boiled icing for our practical quiz. So without further ado... Two words: TOO SWEET! 😉
I should have posted sooner, but between the typhoon and the simultaneous make up classes, I just wanted to squeeze in all the sleep and rest I could get. We have finished 2 series of lessons and halfway through another, but I'm going to post all of them separately. This first one is special... Because… Continue reading Seafood Galore.

Anyway, we learned different parts and cuts and uses of beef, veal and lamb the last 3… Continue reading Meat Overload.
