Cooking Class Dinner

After cooking all afternoon, we arrived at Diana's house at 6:00, ready to eat the "fruits of our labor". Maryann and Diana fixed our artichoke bruschetta:

Pam and Cindy put together our fennel-orange-red onion-spinach salad with passionfruit dressing:

Everyone enjoyed the beautiful parmesan crusted heirloom tomato tart.

The husbands were hungry and full of anticipation (Don not pictured):

Dinner included maple-rosemary glazed short ribs and cheesy polenta with fried sage.

We managed to save enough room for an Italian Apple Tart and cinnamon ice cream:

I was surprised by the chefs with a perfect thank you card, a gift certificate to Bristol Farms, and a thoughtful "Italian Phrase-a-day" calendar! We've already planned to make this a quarterly event!

What a great evening! Your food is always amazing.

Looks like you all had a wonderful evening. I wish I had the opporunity to cook with you-I'm sure I'd learn so much.
