Cooking up a storm at improv workshop

improvisational cooks

Everyone was cooking up a storm at the “Improvisation of Dinner” workshop led by Carrie Sackett and Performance of a Lifetime’s Maureen Kelly a few weeks ago.  Designed as a playful improvisation in cooking without a recipe, small teams of participants whipped up pasta sauces without recourse to the tablespoon or measuring cup. Says Sackett, “We cooked with a limited number of ingredients — figuring out how to use what was ‘in the cupboard,’ and made some tasty pasta sauces. Maureen helped us improvise as teams throughout, making for an open and experimental afternoon.”

never 'too many cooks' when it comes to improvising....

    It really seemed like the entire class was having a wonderful time. Cooking with people who were mostly strangers, and who had such varied degrees of cooking skills and experience, led to a surprisingly (to me) friendly, social, and joyful event!
