In case you didn't know, Whisk Wednesdays is changing a bit. The group formed in June of 2008 after I saw a note on Shari's blog that she was cooking her way through the Basic Cuisine Course of Le Cordon Bleu with an online version of the curriculum. She was more than halfway through the course at this point, and I sent her an email saying that I would love to join in, but I did not have the experience and didn't want to embarrass myself each week. She had not had anyone else ask about joining her, so she encouraged me to just jump in and do what I wanted when I wanted. We chit chatted back and forth and before we knew it, the group was formed and others joined us.
