The French brothers Nicolas and Francois Bergerault offer a thirty minute hands-on cooking experience, known as "L'en cas" which in English could be translated as "Cook, Eat and Run". It doesn't matter whether you are a complete beginner or a more experienced cook, in 30 minutes sharp they teach you how to prepare and cook a dish that you can serve at your next dinner party and impress your guests not to mention your hubby. I'm not sure my kids are ready to appreciate French cuisine...yet?!
In a convivial and fun environment we learnt how to concoct Asian noodles with crunchy vegetables and roasted prawns. I love cooking but I have kept well away of seafood. Growing up in Switzerland doesn't really incentivate you towards this kind of food. After my initiation with gambas I have served them for dinner in three different versions much to my hubbies' delight who grew up in Napoli.

A kitchen spic and span
The ingredients which need to be chopped
The enemy: las gambas
First time I've ever cooked Asian noodles
(remember I am married to an Italian:
we eat pasta NOT noodles))
15 minutes down, 15 minutes to go...
the exotic touch
a bit of green as colour contrast
Frying the cooked noodles
... et voilà!
