Earlier this week I went to a cooking class at Cooks Warehouse, one of out local kitchen shops. The class was on desserts, which in my opinion you can't go wrong with, the chef was from Morton's restaurant. He was instructing us on how to make their Key Lime Pie, Legendary Hot Chocolate Cake, and Sabayon with fruit. It was a great class, there were only 8 people in the class which made it very nice. We were able to ask the chef all kinds of questions, and he was able to explain a lot about the restaurant business. Of course the best part was tasting the finished product. The cake was wonderful, like a cross between a pudding and a cake. The pie was delicious also, a little heavy but very good. The sabayon was actually my favorite, it was very lite and the fruit that it was served with was extremely fresh and tasty. At the end of the class we even received a goodie bag from Morton's. There was a gift card for a free appetizer, and an apron. It was a pleasant surprise. I have never eaten at Morton's, but after this class I can definitely recommend the desserts.
