Food demos at restaurants across the city seem to have really caught on. We attended one recently at Bene, the Italian restaurant at the Sheraton Hotel where the Chef showed us how to cook different kinds of Pasta and Risottos. These cooking sessions are usually short (2 – 4 hours) where you learn how to make around 3 dishes – a main course, dessert and soup, or salads and soups etc. within that time frame. You also get some useful general cooking tips from the chef. These courses are interesting, easy to attend and usually quite alot of fun. And nowadays you even see many men attending these cooking demos/sessions taking notes as the Chef stirs a steaming Risotto or some other such dish!!
