Patrick's Cooking Classes

Patrick loves to cook (thank goodness since I hate it). He is constantly reading recipes and finding new adventures for the taste buds. For his birthday this year, I gave him a gift certificate for some cooking classes so that he could play Top Chef. His last class is this Thursday and he has seemed to really enjoy the experience. (Classes at Kiss Z Cook in Carmel if you are interested in signing up.)

Here are some pictures from his poultry class. Duck and grilled chicken slammers. Patrick actually made the quail (not pictured).

As he has taken classes, he has gotten more adventurous in just trying out combinations. This past Saturday he made pears on the grill. They were really yummy.

Slice pear in half and core it.
Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon of brown sugar (total for both halves);
Toss in a few nuts and spritz sugar/nuts with fat free butter.
Wrap in aluminum foil and cook on grill for 15 minutes or until pear is warm throughout.
