COOKING CLASSES & SPECIAL EVENTS
MUSHROOMS GALORE — TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 7th
This class is all about mushrooms – the exotic ones that we can buy in local markets and the safe, wild ones that biologists like Henry Lomelli and other experts gather in nearby forests.
Henry will talk about mushrooms and we’ll use them in several recipes where they make the critical difference in taste and flavor. This class will turn you into a mushroom fan.
$70 plus $15 wine and beer pour. 6:30-9 PM.
DESSERTS & DOUGH — A PASTRY CLASS — TUESDAY, MARCH 14th
Our customers keep requesting this class. An evening devoted to making dough — and using it to make wonderful main course and dessert items that we’ll eat together. Chef Ann Leon will share her recipes and techniques, demonstrating each step in the process and allowing you to feel the dough as it takes shape and gets ready to bake. $70/person, $15 wine pour, 6:30-9 PM.
MEXICAN CUISINE, WITH A NOD TO OAXACA — Tuesday, March 28th
Much of what we consider Mexican food is really tex-mex, a blend of southwestern cuisine and that of our neighbor to the south. Traditional Mexican food needs plenty of cooking time to develop its characteristic rich and complex flavors. We’ll do moles (and serve them with their traditional accompaniments), roast chilies and other vegetables to bring out their flavors, and make dishes that are favorites of our customers. $70/person, $15 wine pour, 6:30-9 PM.
