Ladies and Gents (or if I were 5 years old, I would have started this with "Ladies and Germs" and promptly keeled over in a laughing fit), you didn't think I would forget about you this Valentines Day did you? Well I have a present that is going to appeal to both of you... a beef and beer cooking class! Now ladies, both taken and single, you may have difficulty getting your Significant Other or whom you want to be your Significant Other to attend a cake making class but dangle a beef and beer cooking class in front of a guy and his ears are likely to swivel around in interest.
Mumu Grill's Beef and Beer cooking class was such a success during the Sydney International Food Festival that they had six times the amount of people wanting to book than there were places. It had to be taken off the website before October such was the demand. So I have two places for one very lucky reader to their next Beef and Beer Masterclass on the 20th of February. If you miss out they hold regular Beef and Beer Masterclasses on the second and third Saturday of each month.
This is how Craig Macindoe, the owner and chef of Mum Grill describes the classes:
"The format will be one hour in the kitchen with me followed by one hour outside with Dan.
While in the kitchen we will look at beef cuts, different cooking techniques, Basic rubs, and BBQ Salads. During the kitchen time we will of course be having a beer, after all, what is a BBQ without one. All attendees will cook in my kitchen.
Once an hour has been spent learning about beef, all the food will be plated up ( yes you will be marked on your plating just as in Masterchef). Then outside to spend an hour eating the meat and talking and learning about beer. You will taste approximately 5-7 beers with your meal going through various production techniques flavour profiles and all the technical stuff."
So to win this fantastic prize valued at $170 just tell me what are you wishing for this Valentines Day?
