Cooking class at-sunrise

I attended my first ever cooking class yesterday. Sponsored by Corning/Simply Her magazine, the class was hosted by chef Irene Jansen. I got to learn 3 new sexy sounding recipes : Butternut Squash Soup with Honey Baked Ham, Christmas Roast Chicken with Ginger Lime Sauce and Sweet Potato Cakes and Raspberry Warm Chocolate Cake.

The class was fun and the recipes were all fairly straightfoward and relatively easy to do. I enjoyed the sweet potato patties a lot and that's something I will definitely try making. That and maybe the butternut squash soup. However, found the chicken and desert dishes rather ordinary - nothing that can't be downloaded from allrecipes.com :)

Irene was a fun chef and a friendly teacher with very easy-going demeanor. Afterwards, we all sat down on a nicely made up table with views of Fort Canning Park and enjoyed our afternoon creations. Great female-bonding and all in all a very full + filling afternoon!
