On Monday night one of our intrepid team took on the challenge of ‘Masterchef’ in the kitchens of Franco Paldinis Brio Restaurant at Thorp Park, Leeds. Jeannette put herself up to learn the skills of a classic Italian chef and how to cook some of the signature fish dishes of the restaurant. She was joined by a handful of other people with their biggest critics being people in the restaurant who could sample the food they had prepared so the pressure was on! http://youtu.be/ybEA64mNqQE However, the pressure wasn’t quite as intense as usual Masterchef competitions as Franco was demonstrating the techniques of cooking and then letting the students join in but they produced some wonderful food. We sampled 8 dishes among which were Seafood Risotto, Prawn and Clam Lingiuini, Pan fried Turbot, Chicken Cacciatori and finally Tiramisu. http://youtu.be/oSUTKUwZx8k As you’d expect from one of the best Italian chefs in Leeds, the results were amazing. We all hope Jeannette will be hosting a dinner party soon where she can show off her skills. Perhaps she’ll move out of marketing recruitment and get a new job in a leading restaurant!
