2018 Date Night Challenge – “C” Date

Publix Cooking School – Dr. Phillips

For our C date, I decided to build on Tom’s love for cooking and food, in general.

First, We went to Starbucks for a Cup of Coffee while we waited for our feature of the night to begin. Tom’s favorite is Doppio, a black, double espresso. Mine is Blonde Flat White, nonfat with one pump of classic syrup.

Next, our local grocery store chain, Publix, offers cooking classes. Some are hands-on and some are demonstrations only, but you get to eat great food at both.

I chose a demonstration class this time–Winter Wine and Dine–featuring all the great flavors of winter. My hope was for Tom to sit back, relax and enjoy a great meal while learning something new. And that is just what we did!

We had front row seats which allowed us to interact with the chefs.

Our four course dinner was delicious!

By the look on his face, I think this date was a success!

The tips we learned:

  • Coriander is the seed of cilantro
  • Using a ceramic knife when cutting avocados keeps them from turning brown. Store in a glass, not metal, container. This works on any fruit that tends to turn brown after cutting.
  • When using fresh cilantro, bunch it together at the stem and use the tines of a fork to strip the leaves off.
  • Partially freeze bacon before cutting in pieces.

It’s your turn…share with us what you did on your date this month.

Happy Dating!
