My next cooking party will be held at ChefScape's teaching kitchen at 1602 Village Market Blvd, Leesburg, VA. I hope to see some serious foodies join me in cooking up this advanced menu I've created for the evening. We'll meet in the event space at 5:45 on Saturday, March 23rd. Class starts at 6:00. After a fun evening of cooking we'll sit down and enjoy our creations!
Here's our plan:
**Madam Butterfly Cocktail
Cumin Spiced Nuts
Ajaat (Cucumber Relish)
Waterfall Beef Salad Wraps
Pineapple Fried Rice with Candied Bacon
Chu Chee Curry Pla and Roti
Thai Coffe Pots (de Crème)
We'll be starting with a refreshing and surprising Thai cocktail and some snacks before assembling the intensely flavored Waterfall Beef Salad Wraps. It's called Waterfall beef because of the sound the beef's fat makes when falling into the flames of the fire. You have to use your imagination on this.
My version of Pineapple Fried Rice is topped with candied bacon and has been a long-time favorite among my clients. Now you can learn the secrets to this famous dish.
There's a good chance that some of you haven't even heard of Chu Chee Pla before. Pla= Fish, Chu Chee= the sound the curry paste makes when cooking (of course!). Thailand is famous for naming dishes after the sounds they make. This is a sweeter more coconut-ty flavored curry with a red curry base.
We'll end with a new dessert I've been working on. It's as if my favorite drink, Thai Iced Coffee married my favorite dessert, Chocolate Pots de Crème and they had a baby. Thai Coffee Pots!... get it? You'll get the recipe, but I'll do all the work on this one so you can sit back and enjoy.
After dinner you can grab your drinks and new friends and head next door to Bar AhSo and the ChefScape dance floor for R&B night which begins at 8:00 and goes until midnight.
This is going to be a great one! Purchase your tickets here.
