I can’t believe we’re up to 27 days at sea – just another 40 to go :-).
It definitely wasn’t as expected and we won’t attend another of his
classes – we had a TON of fun but didn’t really learn anything. We were tasked with making 6 different salads. Bill and Pat did the Som Tam Salad; Gert and Barbara did the Waldorf Salad and others prepared the Chicken Pasta Salad; Chinese Chicken Salad; Cold Pasta Salad and Vodka Sauce (which was really good).
We had 12 people (the maximum) in the class and he divided us up into groups of 6 and then just let us loose in the kitchen. Photos showing us having a good time and it was fun, just not very educational. Chef Jamon (previous Pinnacle chef) was terrific and we learnt a lot, especially about presentation. But George isn’t a good teacher! Thankfully the classes in the next 2 segments are with Pinnacle Chef Ben.
We lazed about the ship for the balance of the day enjoying the good weather. Dinner will be in the Rotterdam tonight.
