Cooking Class at Prego, Westin Kuala Lumpur

After the fun and enjoyment of last cooking class at EEST, Westin KL, May and I went for an Italian kitchen experience at Prego.

We really had a great time with Chef Rajesh Kanna - again, it was very hands on and he gave lots of tips. Best of all, class is small so it was very personal and we get to know people who also love food!
They were generous enough to offer us a cuppa of our choice and loads of bread (above platter + 3 pieces already eaten were for 5 of us in the class) before class. We learnt to make :Chilled Zucchini and Parmesan Soup - oh, sooooo GOOD!!! Tomato Dip (their signature complimentary warm country bread was delicious - its given to every table)
Warm Zucchini and Parmesan Soup (the same as cold except for temperature) - drizzled with olive oil and garnished with Parmesan-Reggiano and sauteed cubed zucchini/garlic
Pappardelle with Lamb Ragout (we made the egg pasta and the ragout from scratch!!!) - drizzled also with olive oil and garnished with a sprig of marjoram and freshly grated parmesan
Roasted Lamb Rack with Onion Jam, Saute Potato, Thyme Jus (we were also given recipe for lamb jus AND free tasting of both lamb and duck jus) - the jus were to die for! Lamb was grilled (or pan- fried) slightly to seal in the juices before being oven roasted for 20mins for medium done. It was excellent!May receiving her certificate from Chef Rajesh.

I came home feeling like I can tackle a dinner party for 20 people. LOOOL!!! Seriously, I learnt so much. Worth crawling out of my warm bed by 7.30am on a Saturday!
