Cooking is FUN!

Anyone who thinks cooking is dull, boring, tedious, yucky, whatever...I've got news for you!  You obviously have not been to one of the cooking classes at Urban Kitchen on Cherry Street.  I know I'm probably somewhat prejudiced but just to prove to you that cooking can be fun and therapeutic; here's a video from a recent Spring Dishes class. 
Now, be honest. Don't you wish you had been a part of that class? And don't you love that double handed technique? 
Part of cooking is being inventive. In the cooking biz, that's known as "McGyver-ing". Remember, that old TV show with...what's his name? Well. McGyver.  Anyway, McGyver was always put in a situation where he had to use something for a purpose other than the one for which it was intended.  In this class, we needed to pound boneless chicken breasts (obviously into submission) and there was only one mallet for the class to use.  So, instead of sharing one mallet, we had a group exercise with the small heavy saucepans.  Saucepans became mallets.  We turned boring into fun!  See how easy it can be?


  1. That was such a fun class! We can't wait to come back!

  2. It was fun!! Look forward to seeing you soon!
