The Tiny Chef

A couple months ago GFL made mention of the Tiny Chef in a post about catering. I decided to check out her web site,, and thought she sounded fun and booked an evening of cooking and demonstration. At long last, last night came and we had such a great time. She arrived around 5:30 and didn't leave until almost midnight. I'm sure she could normally have been gone earlier but we were having so much fun that I know we slowed the process down. We laughed, ate, drank, cooked, watched, learned, and told stories.

The menu:
Spinach Cannelloni with Tomoato Sauce (how much better is homemade pasta!!)
Roasted Pork with Herbs, Garlic, and White Wine
Stuffed Zucchini Marche Style

I like to cook but I am totally an amateur so I was looking for tips, tricks, ideas, and confidence that "I can do this!" She certainly delivered all the above -- all with a laugh or smile. I highly recommend checking out her web site and giving her a try. By the time the evening was done, we had eaten better Italian than any local restaurant, learned how to do it ourselves, had a grand time, and had made a new friend in the process.

Thanks for the tip GFL.
