Week #2 Class

Week #2 class was all about making sauces.We learned how to make alfredo, pesto, marinara, and how to combine those sauces together to create delicious new and exciting flavor combinations.  We also learned how to make home made mayo, soups, salsa, and compound butters.  Chef Tim  Flick has lots of neat tools to use in his executive kitchen setup.  I've come to realize that I need to start my list of essentials to add to our kitchen.  A stick blender and food processor are a must.  I've also learned more about how to prepare meats and fish, especially salmon, for grilling or roasting.  It's almost overwhelming how much information Tim is sharing with us each week on his low carb high healthy fat meal program.  I'm starting to see results.  Still hard to give up those German fries!  They are one of my favorites.  I'll sneak them every once in a while to treat myself when I've done especially well on eating healthier meal choices. You can't believe the difference in taste between home made mayo and what you buy in the store!
