Thanks for the cook school on Saturday! It was fantastic!

Please let Prue know I have my own blowtorch now and am blistering everything I see in the kitchen. I have also gotten some poultry scissors and successfully Spatchcocked two Bostock chickens this morning. I’m a home taught cook, as in I have no formal cooking lessons, and I really appreciated not only did Prue and Jason teach us some techniques, but also they interpreted the cooking lingo - which allowed me to understand much more of what they were showing us.
Thanks again, Susan Smith
