Granville Island Market fish stand.
I signed up for an online cooking class. It's called Surf & Turf and is offered by Ann Marie of Cheeseslave.com.

Lesson #11: Organ Meats 1: Heart, Tongue & Bone Marrow
Lesson #12: Organ Meats 2: Liver Four Ways

I’m not super thrilled about the theory portion of the program. I’m sure it will be interesting and informative, but like everything related to health and nutrition, it has to be taken with an open mind and a grain of salt. What I am looking forward to is the actual cooking lessons. I’d like to learn how to cook fish properly. It will be great to learn how to make stock from bones and I’m even looking forward to the two lessons on organ meats... except the part about tongue!
Jenny, at The Nourished Kitchen wrote a really good re-cap of the first lesson (the dreaded theory lesson). Oddly enough, it’s her review that finally prompted me to sign up!
In the coming weeks I will post re-caps about my lessons and experiences. Check back!
