Steluţa's Birthday

Yesterday was Steluţa's birthday so Katka arranged for a few of us to surprise her with a cooking class. So here's the catch...wait for it...the cooking class was entirely in Czech. Oh good grief.

The class was held at the Míele store here in Brno. At first it seemed like it would turn out to be a big sales pitch but fortunately it wasn't. It was actually a lot of fun and Steluta was totally surprised.

Steluţa, Katka, Sabine, Natalie and I joined in for an Italian cooking class, again, entirely in Czech. All of the participants were split in to two groups to prepare a four-course meal, complete with wine and coffee.

We started off with an eggplant, cheese, onion and peppers stack thing served with a parsley vinaigrette. We followed this up with a pesto pasta dish. Our entrée was fish served with risotto. It was all quite tasty! Dessert was tiramisu and it too was yummy!!

Pavel showed up at the end with a bottle of champagne for the birthday toast. A fun evening but now I have to get my head in the game and focus on Saturday's Thanksgiving fiesta.
