CAARI COOKS! Culinary Class


Oh, yes we do!  Late the afternoon, we drove to South Tel Aviv to the Dan Gourmet Culinary  School.  For several years, CAARI has been enjoying culinary classes at this wonderful facility with the best chefs!

The huge kitchen has individual stations for all of us to work.  Chef Michael Katz was our instructor last year and again this year.  This year we are cooked an Italian menu, Israeli style using local ingredients.

Katz first gave us a few tips like chopping garlic, grating whole tomatoes and slicing zucchini to make a delicious Carpaccio.   debone and chicken leg! Perhaps, the most difficult was learning

We divided into two teams and began our assignments for the arugula & tomato salads, Carpaccio,  chicken on a skewer, eggplant risotto, focaccia,  and open lasagna.  But…before we began cooking, we began with a little wine and chocolate.  Isn’t that how Julia Child began her culinary classes? 
We chopped, cut, sliced, grilled, stirred and came out with an amazing dinner for us to enjoy. A special treat was the Strawberries with rose water zabayon made by Michael.  
Another great day!
