If you’ve never taken a class at Stonewall Kitchen Cooking School in York, you should. The space is beautifully appointed and the crew top-notch.
It’s also seriously at least 10 times the cooking space I have on the Riggin. Instead of standing at my stove and turning, turning, turning from stove to baking supplies to counter top, I had miles of kitchen to cover and all sorts of spaces to loose track of my knives and glasses and any number of trays of mise en place kitted up for the class. This girl is not used to being able to spread out!
I had not a clue what to expect when I arrived, as I’ve never been in the cooking school side of the campus before. As I walked around to familiarize myself with the space, I had several lovely surprises in the form of Riggin guests who kept walking through the door. As soon as I’d hugged one, the next walked in! What a treat to have the support of those who already knew me as I began the class and walked everyone through the recipes from bread to dessert.
After teaching to a full class for 90 minutes, there was time to sign books and talk with folks as they filtered out. What a lovely way for everyone to spend a long lunch and what a fun time I had sharing it with them. Many thanks to the Stonewall Kitchen crew for making my first time go so smoothly.
Looking forward to the next time
