“My compliments to the chef” takes on a whole new meaning when you get to be the chef. The Sales and Marketing team got together for a fun team-building experience last month. We headed to Everything IZ in Vestavia Hills for an Italian cooking-class. We made everything on the menu from the appetizers to the desserts.
For starters, we made Truffle White Bean Puree, which we spread onto a crostini and topped it with arugula and shaved pecorino Romano cheese. Then we made Serrano & Mozzarella Aranchici, which are fried rice balls filled with pimento cheese. We dipped these in a sweet mustard sauce.
For dinner, We made Southern Style Bolognese, which is slow cooked Bolognese sauce and homemade pasta. I had never made homemade pasta dough before. It took time, but it was worth it.
For dessert, we made Tiramisu. I’m totally a dessert person, so this was my personal favorite. I thought it was so creative that the chef thought to use large coffee mugs to fill with the tiramisu layers to make personal-size portions of the dessert.
My favorite part of the experience was getting to taste all of our delicious creations alongside my wonderful team members!
