Media cooking class with Chef Wolfgang Puck

I’m a rubbish cook. Well I guess I toss a decent salad, and my smoothies are pretty darn sweet, but domestic goddess I ain’t. I do however, get a buzz out of being in a busy professional kitchen, all hot and heavy with testosterone and constant cries of “YES CHEF!” And I thoroughly enjoyed Wednesday’s cooking class at the Four Seasons¬†with celebrity chef, Wolfgang Puck.

We prepared two dishes – Vegetable Spring Rolls and Chef Wolfgang’s famous Chinois Chicken Salad, both deliciously fresh and flavourful. I actually spent more time taking pics than cooking, so it was lucky I was surrounded by both professional chefs and a competent cook – my partner Tulin.

Luckily the messy tasks such as chopping up the chicken were left to the professionals!

Chef Wolfgang was a wonderful teacher – funny, patient and of course full of great tips

The chefs were obviously entertained by our kitchen antics

Prep finished, we were seated in the stunning surrounds of re Asian Cuisine to enjoy our dishes, along with the most mouth-watering black sea bass, and carefully-paired beverages.
