Before the Social Media Puto discovered that restaurants would give him free food in exchange for tweets, he had to figure out other ways to satisfy his cravings for gourmet food.
After several unsuccessful attempts at trying to meet a woman in his age group who could actually cook, not to mention the stifling salary of the journalism career he chose that limited his restaurant excursions, the Social Media Puto had no other choice but to learn how to cook for himself.
And he actually became pretty good at it.
But he’s not a pro, which is why he became a regular at Homemade Chefs cooking classes.
The classes, operated by the award-winning Chef George (Jorge Montes) and his sister Vanessa, offer an informal, hands-on cooking experience where students learn to cook various international cuisines.
In other words, the classes are a blast.
More like a dinner party at a friend’s house than a structured regimen with a barking chef, the classes allow students to interact with each other over wine and beer (BYOB) or in Saturday’s case, Sangria, which students made fresh in class as they prepared Spanish dishes.
Chef George walks around and gives pointers and demonstrations while Vanessa keeps the music flowing.
The class ends with students sitting at the table eating, laughing and complimenting themselves for the excellent meal they just prepared.
The Social Media Puto hasn’t taken any other cooking classes in South Florida, but is confident to say this is the best cooking class you can find, even if he does have to cross the Miami border into Broward to take them.
He is, however, open to invitations from other classes who are open to be reviewed on this site.
In full disclosure, the Social Media Puto is good friends with Jorge and Vanessa, which means he didn’t even have to write this Puto Post because they would give him free food anyway.
