Romantic Orlando – What’s Cooking?

“Cooking is like a relationship, you can do it because you LOVE it, or you can do it because you HAVE to.  The choice is yours!” – Tom Walter

Debi and I love to cook.  We always have, but we’ve gotten much better at it as the years have passed.  And need I say we love to eat!?  This propels our love of cooking.

Imagine how thrilled we were when we were invited to go to a cooking class at Truffles and Trifles?  It was a group class, so there wasn’t a lot of instructing going on. The ingredients were measured out for us in various stages around the room. There were about 25 people involved in the whole process. Conversations were lively and the food was delicious.

As an added bonus we were given the recipes of all the dishes we helped create. The only restrictions was that the recipes could only be used for our private use – no sharing.  Sorry we can’t give you a sample of what we tasted, but our favorite was the bread pudding with whiskey sauce. 🙂 (For those who know Debi, she picked out the raisins.  But she stilled LOVED the recipe.)

Truffles and Trifles has been in business for 27 years. Marci, the owner, was on hand and willing to help in anyway she possibly could.

She was eager to tell us about her monthly Date Night opportunities. The next one will take place on Friday night, October 28th.  The cost is $140 per couple. The theme for this date night is Fall Food and Halloween, which is sure to be a howling good time.

Who would enjoy cooking if they never got to taste the food they prepared? Cooking is so much like marriage; many ingredients are needed at just the right proportion to insure the finished product will be good. There are so many ingredients which make up a good marriage. You can’t focus on only one thing or the end results will still be lacking.

Measured commitment with romance, faith and unselfishness are sure to produce a lasting, lifelong type of love.

What is something you and your spouse enjoy doing together? When was the last time you tried something new? A cooking class might just be the thing to help you explore life (and love) in a new and meaningful way. If a cooking class is too expensive, why not record a Food Network cooking show, go shopping for all the ingredients you want to cook, and then have your own cooking night at home. The cost will only be for the groceries purchased, but the memory will be priceless. Don’t forget the candles!

Bon Appetit!

    Ah what a lovely idea….there will be a cooking school opened near me shortly….am hoping to attend and get my girls to attend….somehow I doubt my husband would want to go anywhere near the place which will be a real pity

      Maybe you could talk to him about how fun it would be to do something like this together. It’s worth a try anyway! 🙂

    What a great idea! I love to cook, my sweet husband loves to eat my cooking 🙂 A quick funny about that, when our DS was about 5 he said to me one day out of the blue, “Mama, if you ever go to jail, it will be okay, Daddy can feed us steak and chocolate chip cookies”. I was floored (laughing under my breath of course), why, in the first place, would he connect me and jail and secondly, how funny that he knew, even at 5, that those were the only two things my sweet hubby can make? 🙂

      I love the perspective of little eyes! Our middle daughter told me when she was about that age, “Mommy, You’re a good cooker!” makes me smile whenever I think of it.
