Chef Pilar Cabrera's twice weekly cooking class started at 9:30 with a visit to the organic market. Pilar is a terrific person and the "class" was quite enjoyable. We prepared a very difficult mole negre chicken dish as part of a 4 course complex "festive meal", topped off with rose petal sorbet. We finished eating at about 1:30 PM. Everyone had a truly great time, and I 'm sure he would love making tortillas by hand, under Pillar's guidance. First person to register gets to pick the menu for the max. 8 person class. Anyone know a place in Cleveland where I can get some avocado leaves?
Please see my two videos from class held on January 4,2007 posted at youtube.com.
