I am loving the free Technique classes
@ Williams Sonoma!
I attended my 3rd one this past Saturday
I learned how to make butter and ricotta cheese
Also, another fun surprise
the owner, Rich Rogers from Scardello's
was there to give us
a quick lesson on cheeses
Is it a coincidence
that I had just visited Scardello's
last week ?
Here is a list of the upcoming classes
The classes I attend in Plano @ Park & Preston are on Saturdays @ 9:30am
Look on the Williams Sonoma site for location and times in your area
