I just taught my first class at Central Market in Fort Worth. To a sold-out crowd of more than 50. I had a staff (a staff, y’all!) of wonderful people — volunteers and Central Market employees — buzzing around behind me and putting everything together, as I walked everyone through four of my favorite recipes from my new cookbook. I chopped. I folded egg whites. I told silly stories. People laughed. When it was all over, I signed books and talked to everyone. I’m still sort of pinching myself.
Ouch. I just did it again.
Remember…until now, I’ve been teaching classes to a maximum of six in my tiny Paris kitchen.
And the fun has only just begun. Today, I’ll be packing my boots, Wranglers, and cowgirl apron to cook at four other Central Market stores around Texas — Plano, San Antonio, Houston, and Austin. As of this moment, there are still places available for the Austin class; the other markets have also sold out.
But please check the Central Market website for the most updated info on my classes here. You can still sign up to be on the waiting list; otherwise, why not take a road trip and come to Austin for the Sunday class?
Did I mention that there’s Champagne involved? C’mon!
