My favorite food this week:
Anyone Can Cook Class
Heidi Says . . .
It was our Sea Day on the Disney Dream. Brian and I were just wandering around the ship, taking it all in on our last day on board. It was a bittersweet day. The truth is, we were just starting to get used to cruising; so the thought of it ending the next morning made us a bit sad.
We happened upon a cooking class, and they were going to be preparing Apple Strudel. Sounded like fun to me, though I’m sure Brian thought it was a crazy idea. But, he went with me!
The chef who taught the class was the head pastry chef on the Dream. He’s an Italian with a very strong accent, so we had to really tune in and listen carefully until we got used to his accent. I was fascinated by his stories and his skills!
Do you see what looks like a cloth on that table? That is actually the pastry dough! He was able to spread it out so thin – with his hands! In fact, he said he could have spread it even thinner and covered TWO tables with it. This guy knows his stuff! If you’ve ever been aboard the Disney Dream and enjoyed all the lovely breads . . . yep, this guy prepared them (or oversaw those who did).
Anyway, we each got to try a piece of the finished Apple Strudel and it was delicious!
If you have a chance, I’d definitely recommend checking out one of these classes on the Disney Cruise Line. It was a lot of fun and very interesting.
Do you know what country strudel originated in?
