Cook with me: shrimp scampi edition
grocery list, Zoom link and wine recs for Tuesday's cooking class
If you haven’t been keeping up with my copious announcements (I forgive you) the TL;DR summary is I am hosting a monthly zoom cooking class for my paid Substack subscribers and this coming Tuesday, September 27 @7pm will be the very first! We will be making one of my favorite dishes of all time: shrimp scampi. With an FLD twist, of course💁♀️
I don’t want to toot my own horn (says literally everyone who is about to toot their own horn) *but* my shrimp scampi has won over many-a-dinner guest. It’s the single dish my family requests I make during our semi-annual summer vacations and the dish I make for date night when I want to steal someone’s heart (this has legit happened maybe twice but I stand by it).
The secret to a perfect, garlicky, buttery, light but decadent shrimp scampi is less about the ingredients and more about the technique - a few small touches are what’ll take your pasta from home cook-level to restaurant quality. If you’re a paid subscriber, all the info you need to join Tuesday’s class including Zoom link is below. Can’t wait to cook & drink together and answer all your q’s about shrimp scampi, life and beyond.
