Hi John!
Thanks for the "more appropriate" (IMHO )options for our Monday night dinner!  My personal favorite app would be the shrimp/ Grilled pineapple salsa but all are fine with me.  My personal fave soup would be your Gazpacho- but since we are not having a green veg, then either one of the spinach or broccoli soups would be great too..Mulligatawny, Onion and Lentil sound a little bit heavy ( maybe that's just me? ), but count me in ( it's not as if I don't I love them )... - if the ladies choose one of those- all are fine with me.  Naturally I'm looking forward to the Beef and Potatoes and... Profiteroles. In other words, I will go as the crowd votes with no problem at all.  I don't think we can go wrong with any dish you make as you are a rockstar in the kitchen!  I was sooo impressed with that huge meal from Onion soup through Bananas Foster with no prep!! 
Thanks again John- looking forward to Monday,
Thank you so much for being a great teacher.  You are very patient and thoughtful.  I've learned a lot in your classes

Hi John,

Thank you sooooo much for a delightful evening last night.  We all thoroughly enjoyed it.  You really outdid yourself.  I’m sorry we talked so much and kept you late.  The food was absolutely delicious.  My husband was expecting leftovers but I cleaned my plate so he was out-of-luck.  I look forward to seeing you tomorrow for the vegetable carving class.  Janet B.

Food Art, Garnishing Made Easy Guide Review


Guide Rating - 5 Stars 



Very clear, step-by-step instructions.

Beautiful full color photos demonstrate every technique.

There's lots of guidance on knife handling and care, good for any purpose.


None found.


The Bottom Line - With this book in hand you can elevate your home buffets from a bunch of hastily tossed together plates of food, to beautiful works of art, without much more effort than the time required to give a little advance thought.
