Last night was the first Jess’s Messes cooking lesson, with the girls from work! I took in a copy of Jess’s Messes – The Cookbook, the ‘students’ chose the food they would like to eat and then it began.
So the food choices:
Everyone got here after work and the madness began. My flat at the moment is lovely, yet the kitchen is a little bit teeny weeny for 5 people. However, I set the 4 of them off with their different tasks, and felt very odd bossing people around, “You do this, you do that” it was strange but meant in the end we all had a lovely meal that everyone had worked hard to create!
The favourite dish by far was the Pleasy, Cheesy Souffle and luckily it didn’t sink – as shown in the picture!
The after effects though, well first there was the reason it is called Jess’s Messes, the amount of time it takes to clean up after, even with 4 helpers I manage to get everything utterly everywhere and then the clean up mission is ridiculous. But also, everyone was soooo full, Jane and Sarah collapsed on the sofa before dessert was even served, but it was good pain. Enjoyable pain!
It was such good fun and I can’t wait to do the next one. I’ve taught 4 people now, how unbelievably easy it is to make a 3 course meal completely from scratch and now the mission is to tell more, spread the word and get more people cooking from scratch.
