Cooking School started when my former, O.S.U. roommate, (we have been friends for over 37+ years) started traveling to Columbus to her hairdresser. Her husband couldn’t understand why she couldn’t find a hairdresser in Cleveland, had to visit several restaurants, and shopping was part of the trip too . This full service trip was getting expensive. We decided that the best way to solve this problem…not really a problem… was to cook at home. So invited a good friend that likes to cook and my niece who is interested in new recipes. Cooking School began. The following is the BEST, Award Winning recipe to date:
Cajun Pasta (5 ingredients!)
1 lb. fettuccine, 2 lbs. shrimp deveined and shelled, 4 Tbsp. of Luzianne Cajun seasoning, 1 cup of olive oil, 1/2 cup of wine.
Boil fettuccine until barely tender. In a non-stick skillet, heat olive oil and shrimp. Cook until half done. Add seasoning and wine. Drain fettuccine and add to skillet, cook until pasta is hot and shrimp done.
(Chicken can be substituted for the shrimp)
Meeting times are determined by the length and color of my friend’s hair. Each member must take their turn in being the teacher. A more than ample supply of wine is available. Because there are several generations present ( our newest member is 23) we have lively discussions, learn new terms, definitions, and life skills in general. Wardrobe and style consultations and updates are free.
