I will be the first to admit that I have been spoiled in my travels. My trip to San Fran had me spoiled in so many ways. Not only did I get to stay with an amazing family but the neighbors were great too! I met Terry Paetzold on my first day in San Francisco. Her yard backs up to the house I was staying in. Terry is an amazing cook and has such a huge heart. She took me under her wing and was extremely patient while I learned to cook some amazing meals.
Here Terry is working in the Garden in the month of May getting it ready for the summer months.
She tailored a menu that worked well with my favorite tastes and also challenged my palette a little. We made several kinds of fish dishes and a muscle and shrimp soup that was delicious! For dessert we made my favorite French pastry tarte framboises (raspberry tarte)
Thank you Terry Paetzold for the cooking lessons! If you are in the Bay Area Terry offers private and group cooking classes in her beautiful kitchen overlooking the garden.
