Well, we decided that what better way to learn than to go to a cooking class! The instructor was the vice president / regional manager of Dewey's Pizza. This pizza chain started in Cincinnati and has moved into other states such as Kentucky, Missouri, and soon to be Illinois. They have a mix of traditional, gourmet, and seasonal pizzas.
Before we got there, Derek and I had a completely different view of what a cooking class would be like. We thought it would be hands-on and we would be able to cook and imitate what the instructor was doing. However, after getting there, it was more like a "class." We watched the instructor cook and got to ask questions and then tried all the food once it was done. I admit, I was a little disappointed at first, but the experience was so much fun! I would definitely do it again!

|First course, the apple cider vinaigrette. IT.WAS.SO.YUMMY! IT had figs, apple-wood smoked bacon, and roasted pumpkin seeds|

|The Southwest BBQ Pizza|
|Because not everybody participated in the throwing the pizza dough, there was extra dough left over. So we were lucky enough to grab some dough and then we bought a pizza peel!|
Now, I'm sure there will be a
