Honestly, we do more than eat here. However, food is just so photogenic, so excuse the lack of diversity in these posts. The director at Mester arranged for the group to go to a cooking class at a well known hotel and restaurant (once I remember the name of the place, I'll update this post). The chef cooked paella, a traditional Spanish dish with chicken, shrimp, mussel, squid, rice, peppers and many other things I can't recall, simmered in a broth. After watching him and his assistants cook the meal, we went upstairs to eat dinner that was preceded by a great parade of appetizers. The combinations sounded rather unusual (violet ice cream and duck liver), but all tasted great!
