Cooking With Cliff


You've met my friend Cliff Holt before.  He and wife Maureen own Little Savannah, one of Birmingham's best restaurants.  From time to time Cliff holds Saturday cooking classes.  Recently they used my daughter Melissa's kitchen, and I had the pleasure of photographing the eager students as they helped Cliff prepare a delicious meal.  We all sat down for a leisurely lunch and enjoyed the results.

The Menu:
 A very fine grilled steak with a Marchand de Vin sauce, haricot vert with shallots (I think) and purple sweet potato gratin. C'est bon!!

I would not mind attending the class myself and then taste the results of the lesson.
Have a great weekend Virginia.

How wonderful! I am not much into cooking but I love photographing food. Sounds like you had a fun day.

A photograph of rapt attention.

Off topic, but I just heard a segment on NPR about Birmingham and the mines and the park they just opened. Fascinating.

And when they talked about the metal statue (the largest metal statue in the world), I already knew all about it.
