    I picked up a copy from Sam's Club the other day. I'll let you know how my first attempt goes. My wife thinks one of the mochi recipes is the one my mom used. It'd be cool to cook some of her old dishes.

    MJ...did you go to last weekend's class at Williams Sonoma on pan frying and saute'ing? It was my first class and I enjoyed getting tips as well as the tasting afterwards. I am looking forward to attending the Italian Comfort food one in February.

    I sure was! The first class was full, so I got slotted for the second one. Were you in the first or second one? I didn't sign up for the Italian one; too lazy

    Sandi is a pretty good demonstrator. She didn't teach you anything you could learn from a book, but having it demonstrated to you live makes a big difference in making the ideas stick in your head; not to mention learning how to make sure your food doesn't stick to your pan! It was interesting to learn that stainless steel has pores on its surface.

    Thanks for the heads up, 808shooter. Who is teaching this class? What is the phone number or link for this class?

    Thanks Sue; web videos are convenient. I wonder how they came up with the name "Epicurious". It makes me think of "bicurious"
