“You are getting an email for your Christmas present,” my son said, followed by, “you will either love it or you may hate me for it.” Those words piqued our interest. How could anything he selected for us make us hate him? He went on to explain that we had a gift certificate to a virtual cooking class. All we had to do was decide on what kind of international cuisine we wanted, check out the menu offered, then sign up for a date. This week we used our gift certificate to prepare Lomo Saltado & Arroz Con Leche with Chef Luis from Lima, Peru.
On Wednesday a box arrived with a few of the ingredients needed to make Lomo Saltado and Arroz Con Leche.
Of course there were perishable items I needed to get before the class. Here is the list detailing the types of pans and utensils needed to create our meal.
The usual, sharp knife and cutting board, measuring spoons and cups, mixing bowls, and pots and skillets, plus:
- 3 medium pots
- 1 wok or large skillet
- 1 heavy bottom skillet for potatoes
- Metal tongs
- Wooden spoon
As I read this list, I began to wonder if I had enough of the right sized pans. Turns out I did. 🙂
There were about nine zoom boxes of others cooking along with Chef Luis. Several of the couples were also the result of Christmas and birthday gifts from children.
It was a good time and a great meal. We were stuffed by the end of our dinner. Merry Christmas to us! No, we don’t hate our son. 🙂
