I want to kick my cooking/food preparation up a notch. I'd like to go classes in the future yet want to do some changes now.
I am looking for dishes to prepare that are a notch above basic, not hyper-gourmet (what I mean by this is super long preparation time, an insane amount of ingredients (obscure and otherwise) and cookware that can only be bought at Williams-Sonoma). Not super-easy and not superhard
Mostly something that a date and friends would be impressed with
Meats, Cassaroles, Vegetable Dishes, Breads, Pies and Pastries, Desserts and more. Baked, layered dishes would be the most challenging.
