Cooking up a storm by CALEB NICKERSON

Participants in the cooking class at Bryson Farms last Tuesday got to pick their produce from the field, watch it being prepared and enjoy a four course meal at the end of the day.
 Bryson Farms hosted a cooking class last Tuesday featuring chef Bruce Wood of Ottawa. An experienced teacher, he showed the class many tricks of the trade. Here he shows the attendees how to cook a proper crepe. He compared their thickness to that of lingerie.

Throughout my life I’ve had a fairly diverse range of jobs. I’ve worked in a wood shop making high-end croquet mallets and accessories, at flea markets selling second-hand stuff and in a kitchen at a high-traffic brunch joint.
(I like to think that working at an English-language newspaper in Quebec is the logical progression of years of niche employment.)
It is fairly rare that two of my past occupations converge, so when I found out that there was a cooking class at Bryson Farms that I could cover, I kissed my hands like the Swedish Chef.
