Now I know how to properly dice a green pepper, stuff an empanada and perfectly flavor grilled shrimp. Thanks to Amazing Edibles on 14th Street in Chicago, my mom friends and I were real chefs for a night-white aprons and all.
We guzzled sangria overflowing with fruit and noshed on appetizers while preparing and cooking an elaborate meal of tapas. On the menu: paella, potatoes in a spicy tomato sauce, stuffed mushrooms, bacon-wrapped dates and my personal favorite-garlic toast topped with goat cheese and saffron marina dip. Amazing Edibles is mostly a catering business, but once a month is open for cooking classes.
