Every month DBS will held Chef Signatures Masterclass Cooking Class with renowned chefs and mummy had the priviledge to go there as she is working there. She went with her colleague and the experience was fantastic, she said. Let mummy review this herself
I have been scheduling this commercial almost everyday, promoting great chefs who will be teaching food-loving people at oue very own studio, AFC Studio and I was hoping I get the chance to go although I hate cooking. It's not the cooking I hate, it's the after cooking. :D
Anyway, I got the chance, and got to go with my colleague. We were waiting to help out but it seems everybody are ok with everything. So we just waited for the event to start. So at 730pm, Chef Tomonori started the class, hosted by Anita Kapoor. The first dish was La Tomate (Salad of tomato, basil infused olive oil, tomato gelée topped with mozzarella) This chef is Japanese, speaks French, not much of English. But it was hilarious coz his maitre de was French who could speak English. So he spoke to him in French where he translates it and spoke to Anita in fluent French accent and Anita explained nicely to the guests... By the way the dish, was to me I think nobody bother to make coz it's pretty long to make, and to many techniques.
The second dish Le Bar (Pan fried sea bass with lemongrass and stewed baby leeks). Oh my, the smell of the fish just tickled my nose. The colour was amazing was so perfect. How I wished I could taste it, but I couldn't.
The last dish Le Foie Gras de Canard (Roasted duck foie gras, verjuice fruits, candied citrus peel and coarse black pepper) Oh now I know Foie Gras is duck liver. The colour of the duck was so beautiful, it's a masterpiece. Anyway, I hate duck, I just hate the smell but his cooking was magical, I couldn't smell the pugent smell of the duck. It smell spicy though.
All in all I hope I get to go again. It's an eye-opening and I had fun.
