French Cooking Classes at Viking
We have part time jobs at the Viking Cooking School in Salt Lake City. We usually just work the weekend classes since the week days are so busy. Last Saturday we did a French pastry class and last night we did a French dinner party. Both classes were a lot of fun.
We really enjoy working in the kitchen. We are assistants to the chefs, so we do a little bit of everything. The classes are "hands on" so the students make what they eat. The classes are very interactive. At the end of the night everyone sits down to enjoy the meal they cooked. I think it is great that they get to do the cooking and not just watch an instructor. The students really learn a lot and it is interesting to watch and help them along the way.
We are also learning a lot from the chefs and students. We have met some great people and enjoy spending time in the kitchen together, especially such a nice one:) Here are some random photos from the French classes we have done. Sorry they aren't that great, I haven't figured out the lighting yet:) ENJOY!
