Behind the Line: Two Chefs Cooking Class
|Two Chefs cooking class of March 2009.|
Chef Jose, who nine years ago started at Two Chefs, the first and only restaurant where he's ever worked, says "I was here peeling potatoes and washing dishes. Here's where I learned how to cut myself, how to burn myself, what it means to have an angry chef yelling in your face. I'm 26 now, once I'm more known I'll open a restaurant. This is the only kitchen I ever worked. I fee like my heart belongs here. I'm just a chef, I cook for a living, I have a good personality, and I love talking to people.
The cooking class is meant for anyone with a love for food. I joined on a recent Saturday and worked alongside a recently married couple who got the class as a wedding present and a couple of friend-girls who work together. We went behind the line with Chef Jose and cooked up and ate a feast. He said "See what I'm doing here? I'm improvising, being creative, going out of my bounds. This is what I try to teach my students. I motivate you to be more open minded."
