Cooking Class

Preparing the guacamole
Last Thursday I attended a cooking class (really a demonstration class) at True Blue, a resort nearby to Prickly Bay, Grenada, where we were anchored. The classes are held weekly, and originally were intended for resort guests, but now a lot of cruisers attend.  It was great fun, and I got to meet several people whose voices I’ve heard on the radio for months, but have never seen face to face. Two women run the class.  Esther seems to do all the preparations and cooking, and Omega is her sidekick. This week the foods were guacamole and salsa, which I already know how to make, but that was okay because they served out plates of both with fresh tortilla chips. Other weeks they’ve prepared fish or vegetable dishes, I’m told. It was a nice way to spend a couple of hours, and only cost $10 EC ($3.75 US). Plus, they had delicious rum punch specially priced for the class at $5 EC (~$1.88 US) per glass.
