Sushi/Sashimi! I would love to make rolls.

I would also like to improve my cake decorating to more than just spreading on frosting. I’m going to try and attempt our cake topper with fondant!

I agree with @Janana…I would LOVE to be able to make my future hubby some sushi since he loves it! I am not a huge huge fan but I like a few things…

I would also like to be more confident overall, I do quite a bit of cooking but am not good and guestimating yet or changing the recepies

I’m not the cook at our house, but he is and he’s been driving me nuts with all of the new recipes he will be working on after we get some of our new cooking gadgets in. Going to see Julia and Julie only gave him more ideas of things to cook and he’s even ordered the Julia Child cooking DVDs.

flambe.

Consistent flambe.

I’m a ball of nerve when it comes to frying anything in the kitchen!  I’m much more of a slow cooker – chop some things up, throw it in the pot, and let it simmer for 5 hours.

But Julia’s coq-au-vin requires the chicken be flambeed – I wish I could consistently burn that chickie!

Breadmaking! I just got Peter Reinhard’s “The Bread Maker’s Apprentice”. Not only are the recipes great (although really time-consuming…), but the behind-the-scenes stories are so much fun!

I just love the homey feeling of the smell and taste of freshly baked bread… ahhhh!

@mariapaz – you should try the “light wheat bread” recipe from that book!  I’m baking it right now, actually – it’s among the easiest bread recipes I’ve ever tried! 🙂  Look for “triple cero” flour in the grocery store, that’s how I found high-gluten flour! (I think Lider carries it)

I agree with sushi too!  I would love to also master Mexican cuisine.

@MariaPaz–my FI is soooooooo into The Bread Baker’s Apprentice, and everything he’s ever made from the book has been incredible!

@MsHymanRoth– Me too!  I am working hard to perfect my chicken marsala recipe.  I’ve tried it all kinds of ways, but it never seems to have as strong a flavor as the good restaurant versions I’ve had.

I actually don’t bake because I have never really had the tools to do it. We got quite a bit of baking stuff for the wedding, so I am going to try to start. I need that Kitchen Aid mixer. I am also going to try to start learning show to make some of the Caribbean food that I grew up with. I want Mr. Swan to like it too. 🙂

@ Bearcub: Ooohh I so heart you right know! I’ll try it out this weekend and let you know how it goes! By the way, have you tried baking “Pain à l’Ancienne”? I still don’t (such high expectations)!

Oh… and the challah recipe rocks

I’d love to be able to find a few simple recipes to use on a regular basis.  We’re definitely “restaurant” people but need to start dining in to save money!

we got a knife set for our wedding also and im going to do a knife course next month at my local community college in how to use them without cutting my fingers off and how to look after them

i would like to learn how to present my meals better – i try not to slop it onto the plate but some days it looks like your standard meat & 3 vege that it needs some jazzing up
