My goal for 2016 was to seek opportunities for learning new things. On my list, re-design my blog (check), learn how to use WordPress (in progress), take a photography class (not yet), attend a blogging convention (this is coming in August!), and take cooking classes.
For about a year now, I have been attending the Cookbook Club classes offered at Williams-Sonoma and they are alot of fun. The tuition for the class includes the cookbook, cooking skills demonstration by their Culinary Specialist, and all the food you can possibly eat. I always walk away making a new friend or two.
The classes usually feature a celebrity who has launched a new book. There’s been Tricia Yearwood, Bobby Flay, Chrissy Teagan, and Martha Stewart to name a few. But, they also feature a “Shop Keepers” book like the class on cooking with Citrus.
The best part is that the books are signed by the author!
Karen leads us through a 2-hour class preparing three dishes from the featured book. Karen has launched into her own catering business and we’ve become swell friends. She did a fantastic job catering Mr. Bee’s 60th birthday party which you can read about here.
This month’s class is the Williams-Sonoma Grill School. I am treating Mr. Bee to a Father’s Day date night. For $30 the class includes the book, techniques and eating the food prepared in class. I thought it would be a fun time for just the two of us to learn something new. Besides, what man is going to turn down steak!?

Are you saying that you actually met Trisha Yearwood? I love her cooking show!
I wish! No, the closest I got was to her signature…
