Small Chicks/BIG EATS x Chef Tech Cooking School Cooking Workshop

Yep! That’s me preparing a Strawberry Rhubarb Cake.

 

Since I started blogging in January of this year, I have been trying to meet and get to know the blogging community around the Los Angeles area. As I was browsing the Internet, I came across Small Chick Big Eats (SCBE) and saw that they were hosting a food bloggers network and cooking workshop in collaboration with Chef Tech Cooking School.

We were greeted with a warm welcome and smiles all around. The girls at SCBE were generous enough to prepare goodie bags for us.

 

Let me first mention that I had no idea there was a cooking school in Long Beach. Of all the times that I have been there, I never knew such a little gem existed. I instantly went to their website, http://cheftechcookingschool.com/, and signed up for this wonderful workshop. The anticipation was killing me. I had been wanted to go to a culinary school for some time now. This was the perfect opportunity to learn basic skills and experience first hand what it would be like to actually be a culinary student. And finally the day came…

My New Hobby: Wine and Canvas

I recently discovered I love to paint. That is when I have a glass of wine next to me :).   If you are like me and you think that painting is not for you, please reconsider that. This is coming from a person who can’t even draw a nice circle but I love to paint and my painting come out looking great.

My dad loved it so much that he hung it in our living room…how cool is that 🙂

Now you’re probably wondering what is this girl talking about. What I am about to show is my first painting EVER. Yes, as an amateur and a first time painter/artist (LOL) I love love love what I created. Well, let me tell you that Wine and Canvas is one of my new favorite places to go for date night with my boyfriend or even with the girls.  I remember after we painted this, my boyfriend and I met up with some friends and they were having such a hard time believing that we painted these awesome pictures. Needless to say everyone wanted to go and try for themselves.  Of course, we went back for what Wine and Canvas calls “Date Night”, where two people work together to create one painting. This is easier said than done.  If we actually cared about the turn out of our painting, my boyfriend and I had to work together to make sure the two canvases matched.  So here is what we did and the end result.
