Who's Traveling now?

It is always fun when Mark Leslie of Beyond The Pasta fame comes to Birmingham to do a cooking class at Birmingham Bake and Cook.
Susan's shop is a great place for all your cooking needs and an occasional cooking class.   
Anyway ~ it is fun to see Mark and share our Italian travel stories.
We were learning to make risotto ~
Y'all know that risotto is one of my favorite 'go-to' dishes. I am always up for learning something new.
Mark showed us some of Nonna's tips, about making a traditional risotto.
He also made some arancini. "Little Oranges"
These are little balls of saffron risotto with bits of mozzarella and ragu in the middle.
Little cheesey mouthfuls of Italy!

What a fun evening!
I know that Mark is back in town tonight for more classes . . . if you aren't busy give Susan a call!

Y'all enjoy the ride~

Arancini is not something I have made before but would hope to try someday. Your cooking class looked like so much fun!
