Cooking with Top Chef Finalist Carla Hall at l'Academie de Cuisine

It has been a long time since my last post, I sincerely apologise but I have been quite busy and in the next few day I hope to tell you about it all. First and most recently was last night's cooking class with Carla Hall. I have been assisting at L'Academie de Cuisine for a few months now and I was lucky enough to get chosen to assist Carla's class. It was fun, tasty, and I love hanging out with celebrity chefs.

I went to China! For two and a half weeks I wandered around Beijing ate great cheap food and even took a Hutong cooking class. More about all of this later, there is so much to tell.

And then there is my darling Cook Book Club or CBC as we are now calling it. There have been a few dinners since I last reported on them so I have to catch up. I am also working a complete list of all the books we have covered since our inception almost 2 years ago.

So after the long break I am back and ready to share. I will try to include all the fun food details from the past few months so please come on back for more.

A good story

GK Chesterton: “The poets have been mysteriously silent on the subject of cheese.”

Voila: www.tastingtoeternity.com. This book is a poetic view of 30 of the best loved French cheeses with an additional two odes to cheese. Recipes, wine pairing, three short stories and an educational section complete the book.

From a hectic life in New York City to the peace and glories of the French countryside lead me to be the co-founder of www.fromages.com. Ten years later with the words of Pierre Androuet hammering on my brain:

“Cheese is the soul of the soil. It is the purest and most romantic link between humans and the earth.”

I took pen and paper; many reams later with the midnight oil burning Tasting to Eternity was born and self published.

I believe cheese and wine lovers should be told about this publication.

Enjoy
