Sur La Table Cooking Class: Part 1

My parents spent this past weekend with us, and we had a great, relaxing time with them. On Sunday we attended a grilling cooking class at Sur La Table, in Manhasset, New York.

Last January, Chris and I took a pasta class here and I just knew my mom would love it, too. When we arrive for the 2 hour class, everything is already cut up, measured out for us, and ready to be put together. It's like having your own personal sous chef! We got to work right away on our grilling menu. 

Grilled Mustard Bourbon Chicken Skewers: Mix together, brown sugar, bourbon, dijon mustard, lemon juice, ground ginger, olive oil salt, pepper, and garlic with chicken in a bag. Let it marinate until it's time to cook.
 

The chicken was meant to be served with this Parsley Lemon vinaigrette: Parsley, lemon juice, lemon zest, cayenne pepper, garlic and olive oil. I LOVED this dressing, but I think I would prefer it better on a salad or with fish.

Grilled Salmon with Dijon-Tarragon Butter:

Everything was soooo good! I really enjoyed the class instructor...I basically want to BE her. She was informative and really knew what she was doing. We got some great new recipes to try out at home and got to enjoy these before we left the class. I look forward to returning here for a cooking class again someday.
