What did you have for lunch today? Want to know what I had?
This cooking class was like none other that we have taken. When we first arrived at Girasoles, Chef sat down with us and told us his very interesting story. It was clear from the moment that we met him that he has a passion for food and cooking - and it was infectious. If you're lacking inspiration in the kitchen - 5 minutes with Chef Jose is exactly what you need.
After a 10 minute conversation with Chef Jose, he asked us what we wanted to learn to cook. (Ummm... is too much to ask him to teach us everything he knows about cooking in 2 hours? 😅) Lucky for us, he's generous and forthcoming with the tips and tricks that he uses to create his amazing culinary creations.
We may have chosen the menu but he taught us techniques and skills to create our favorite foods. We made lots of vegetables and fish, at my request of course, but Chef also honored Ben's love of meat and potatoes. Now we feel equipped and empowered to prepare these dishes at home. Not even a chance that we're going to be able to make all of that in under 2 hours though. 😅
A cooking class at Girasoles is a GREAT way to spend a couple of hours on a Saturday morning. I highly recommend it if you live in the Watkinsville, GA area. Chef Jose is a master at his craft and his love for food and cooking shows in every dish that he creates. If you don't have time for a class - stop by for dinner. You won't regret it.
