The journey begins with a knife

I signed up for my first cooking class.

On Saturday, I am taking the Essential Knife Skills class from The New School of Cooking. I finally get to learn the proper techniques for chopping, slicing, dicing and julienne.

In the meantime, I am eager to start cooking. I am going to surprise my wife tonight by preparing Pasta with Mushrooms for dinner. I found the recipe in Mark Bittman’s How to Cook Everything Vegetarian cookbook.

Wish me luck because I am am also making the vegetable stock from scratch.

More later. I am off to the store.
