Trout, Tilapia, snapper or even grouper can become imperial.
I love taking cooking classes and the time we spent at the New Orleans Cooking Experience in New Orleans was the highlight of the trip for me and my daughter; and Chiqui Collier was our instructor for the day.
This trip was a couple of years ag0 but I never forget cooking classes no matter when they are. I was recently searching for the Bananas Foster Napoleon recipe that my daughter and I had made while there and came across another recipe we prepared the same day that was delicious — this Redfish Imperial; and another recipe that we made that day was the best Bar-B-Q Shrimp I have ever eaten.
I’m on the search for a cooking class somewhere in the US. If you know of a good one, let me know (please leave comment below). I’ve read about a couple of B&B’s in Napa that have weekend classes. I think it would be great to just get on a plane some weekend and go off to a cooking class. It would be even greater if I could come back home and teach that class in my own kitchen. Now that’s an idea; I could fly someplace, US, France, Italy, any country, take a class, and then return home and teach those recipes to people in my own kitchen until I fly off for another weekend and cook again. What the life that would be. I have even a better idea. Wouldn’t it be really cool to find a class someplace that readers of this blog could get together and go for a weekend class; a blog weekend. I would vote for Napa.
