Cooking class with award winning chef David Hackett & Parmigiano Reggiano at the Biltmore Culinary Institute

Last week, I had the absolute pleasure to be invited, alongside other 19 bloggers, to a cooking class at the Biltmore Culinary Academy with award winning chef David Hackett and hosted by the South Florida Blogger Union and Parmigiano Regianno, Italy's King of Cheese.

Parmigiano Reggiano dates back from the Middle Ages, and nowadays it's made using the same method as it did many centuries ago. Another important fact I learned it that it's lactose free so that makes it healthier.

This cooking class such a fun experience! Cooking with and for other people is such a engaging experience and I learned so much, not only about the history of cheese but how versatile  a wedge of cheese can be. It can be used on main dishes, salads, soups and even dessert! We were organized by teams and my team was in charge of dessert.  How lucky! Check out the delicious menu we prepared:

Our dessert came out beautifully!

We had such an amazing time! Many thanks to Parmigiano Reggiano, the Biltmore Culinary Institute and The South Florida Blogger Association for having us.

A breakfast scene

“When you wake up in the morning, Pooh," said Piglet at last, "what's the first thing you say to yourself?"

"What's for breakfast?" said Pooh. "What do you say, Piglet?"

"I say, I wonder what's going to happen exciting today?" said Piglet.

Pooh nodded thoughtfully. "It's the same thing," he said.”
― A.A. Milne

I'm a breakfast enthusiast. Last weekend, I made some eggs & soldiers, Greek yogurt with almonds and honey, and some tea. It was simple, delicious and very nourishing.
