Our friends the Ginsbergs take cooking classes wherever they travel in the world. We know they’ve taken classes in China and Vietnam and they’ve probably taken others we don’t know about.
Jamie thought it was such a great idea that she wanted to sign up for a class here in Lisbon. After we tasted pastéis de nata, she said she’d love to learn to make them.
Much to her surprise, there is a cooking school located right in the middle of the large Lisbon market and when she checked the schedule, she was very happy to learn that tonight’s lesson was “How to make pastéis de nata.” She enrolled immediately.
She’s like a school girl showing off her new clothes on the first day of class.
Shouldn’t the teacher be wearing a hair net over his face?
I think he’s beginning to realize that this student may have real potential.
Wait! Could it be? Is this woman a baking prodigy?
The first taste test seems to have gone well.
The second taste test went even better.
Look at that. Pastéis de nata perfection on her first attempt.
The instructor looks rather proud of his student, doesn’t he?
