One-Pot Dinners

Williams-Sonoma in Los Gatos has a series of cooking technique classes on Sunday mornings before the store opens and guess what? They are FREE. Mike and I went to one entitled One-pot dinners last week. The class was about 45 minutes and the demo was for beef bourguignonne. Our instructor was Brad who had tons of personality. He kept us entertained and was well informed on the art of making food in a pot. The set up is not all that comfortable, you are standing in a group of 25+ people around a 5 foot cooking station but what can you expect for $0.00. They provide a handout with 4-5 recipes/tips and you get to sample the dish prepared. It was a nice way to spend a Sunday morning. If you stop by the store you can find the list of upcoming classes next to the register. Some of the other topics include souffles, spring pasta and grilling. You will see one of our attempts to prepare a one pot meal on a future post.

Our reason for wanting to take this class…

Oh, how was the beef? Super tender, great aroma and color but the sauce needed some more seasoning. It was a bit bland. Mike said he would use a Cabernet instead of a Pinot to give more flavor.
