Fun at the Italian Deli

Do you remember that E got me a cooking class for my birthday? Well last night was the class, and it kicked ass. We've done a class like this before, and loved them! They are held at our favorite Italian Deli, Tony Caputo's.

Well last night's class was Cocktail Party Finger Foods. E and I are crazy for Hors d'oeuvres, so this was a perfect class for us. We started the class by trying all sorts of antipasti, and loving each thing. Cheese wrapped in the best Italian meats, tomatoes and mozzarella sprinkled with truffle salt, crostinis with the best French meats, all served with the best wine and cocktails Salt Lake City has to offer.

Soon we started cooking, or watching Matt and Elaina cook. They made the most incredible hot dishes, tomato soup and mini paninis (they like to serve the soup in shot glasses for cocktail parties), Rockefeller oysters, the best sausage the US has to offer dipped in a homemade aioli, and very yummy bruschetta (the best we've had since being in Italy).

We ended up sitting with a woman that had traveled the world. She had lived in Paris, Sweden and Japan and was more than willing to share wonderful travel stories with E and I throughout the night.

E and I had a wonderful time, and now we know how to make the best Rockefeller oysters known to man, so come on over and insist that we make them for you!
