Are you one of the lucky ducks who has a Fresh Market in your area? If so, I hopehopeHOPE you’re taking advantage of the free cooking demonstrations many locations offer. A la Rachael Ray, in just 30 minutes you’ll learn how to prepare a gourmet meal. The best part? Actually, there are two best parts:
Later today I’ll learn how to make Seared Scallops & Asparagus with Herbed Butter Sauce. MMMmmmmm, just the thought of it sends me to a Happy Place.
Some of my all-time favorite dishes are from these demos: Pan-seared halibut, Pork Tenderloin Paillards w/Dijon-Tarragon Wine Sauce, Pecan Bronzed Mahi Mahi, Tuscan Balsamic Chicken & Peppers (I’ve only made that once, but it’s the fanciest inexpensive meal EVAH). See? Aren’t you curious? DON’T THEY SOUND DIVINE? Come to me, luvah, I must have you NOW!
If you don’t have a Fresh Market nearby, don’t fret–you can get to an Almost Happy Place by clicking this recipe link which includes a cooking video!
I borrowed this picture from Desert Candy, but hopefully I’ll post a revision with Chef Melanie action shots a bit later. Stay tuned…:)
