Blindfolded Cooking in Scottsdale to Impress Your Valentine

A round-up of tasty morsels from Valley food blogs.


Trying to find the perfect place for a unique Valentine's date? EaterAZ gave us a sneak peak at what the Four Seasons in Scottsdale has to offer next week. On Saturday, February 11th the resort is holding "Feast the Senses" where guests can enjoy cooking demonstrations that teach them how to cook a handful of Valentine's Day inspired meals, including strawberry sorbet, crab whipped potatoes and cocoa chili espresso rubbed rib eye all while using their most important senses. If you don't mind shelling out a cool $100 and wearing the occasional blindfold (seriously) it's the perfect opportunity to learn culinary secrets from the pros.

If you want to learn a new recipe sans blindfold to impress your Valentine, Pen&Fork gave carbonara a zany spin this week. The recipe calls for linguine and smoked salmon, and the best part is their picture library that takes you step by step through the entire recipe. Seriously, you can't mess it up.

My last roommate Clement helps me with the heavy suitcases – and I have never had that much luggage: Two heavy suitcases, of which the bigger one has no extendable handle (so I have to walk hunchbacked to drag it on its rolls), a backpack full of books on which a bag with a photo reflector and a heavy book is mounted. Three bags of shoes and an 18″ laptop under my arm, not to forget about the camera dangling from my neck. I have no idea how I will manage to get around with all that luggage in the tight New York public transport system. Clement says goodbye – the last hug to my French roommates – and that was it. Montreal is history, for me, for now.
Would I have been born 50 years earlier, chances are high that I would never meet my roommates again. Nowadays, through technology I am connected with them for as long as the internet exists.

I am really moved by this present. I had a great time with my roommates in Montreal, nearly seven months – and now everything is over. It is the end of my service. It is my last day in Canada, and it’s the last day of February. Tomorrow, everything will be different. Everything will be new. Tomorrow will be another world.
