Cooking Class Fun

Shaquasia Myrie

This evening I attended a cooking class at a vocational school here in Prato. The entrance to the school reminded me of the MTV TV series “Awkward” the way it was set up.  We were introduced to the students and the menu and got started right away. We were split into three groups. Doug and Kevin were in my group with two culinary students. Each group made something different. We made Prato del Biscotti, which is a biscuit made in Prato. The other culinary students helped the other two groups make tortellini with tomatoes and mushrooms and salty crepes stuffed with spinach and cheese.

 

I got a chance to mix the powered ingredients together, roll the dough and cut the biscuits after they were done cooking. Some parts of the process the culinary students had to do, and I watched. After cooking, everyone ate. The food was Molto Bene! I took a few candid pictures.

 

Afterwards, we ended up walking all the way back to our destinations from the school. It was a 30 min walk which wasn’t too bad given all the walking I’ve been doing out here. The initial plan was to catch a bus back, which is how we got to the school. However, things didn’t go according to plan. I personally didn’t mind walking at all. I was listening to music and got a chance to spot a few signs that caught my attention. I didn’t take any pictures because my memory card for my camera ran out of disk space. I didn’t want to delete any of my previous photos either. It was nice to see a different area in Prato. Overall, it was a nice experience.
