Fun / Classes and Workshops / Homeworks
All set to write up the ingenious Soda Stream (turn water into seltzer, tonic or soda in seconds and never buy another plastic bottle) but then I ventured into Claude Martin’s French Cooking class at Homeworks in Old Saybrook. I spent a hilarious evening with our very own (male) version of The French Chef and supped on bacon and cheese canapes, velvety squash soup and scallop mouse with artichoke sauce–fancy dishes that look impressive but are easy to pull off. Claude’s baffling French accent, self deprecating humour and Gallic charm worked wonders on this bunch. Buy me the series. Cooking classes, including food and wine: $62, Call for the schedule: 860.388.3331.
