Cook Like Chef Philip Tarlo
I am so completely impressed with myself. This all started yesterday when I was invited by Chef Philip Tarlo who just opened the Collingwood Cooking Academy recently, to attend one of his classes. Dan and I attended Beef 101 and we learned so much...including how to make the most amazing Yorkshire Puddings. I have tried on several occassions to make them in the past and have not enjoyed much success and I think we used them for something other than eating...perhaps sports related...if I recall. Anyways, the Yorkshire Puddings were amazing and so was the Beef Wellington. It was great to have Dan there too because I could ask some leading questions (like how long are you supposed to left beef rest before cutting into it?) and then Philip would give the answer...so it wasn't like I was telling Dan what to do...Philip was. How brilliant is that?
