COOKING CLASSES & SPECIAL EVENTS
Greek Cuisine – Tuesday, April 22nd
Greek cuisine is Mediterranean in style and substance but differs from other countries in its use of many of the flavors and techniques of Middle Eastern cuisines. These include extensive use of olive oil, vegetables and herbs, honey and nuts as well as lamb, poultry, rabbit and pork.
Spanish Cuisine – Tuesday, May 6th
An evening’s tour of Spanish cuisine, an approach to cooking and eating that is very compatible with our lifestyle, tastes, and locally grown food. The Mediterranean region is similar in agriculture and climate to ours, and so it seems natural to include its cuisine in our dining repertoire. We’ll discuss their preferred ingredients and cooking techniques and show you how to make tapas, paella and other famed Spanish dishes.
Ethnic Sauces – Tuesday, May 13th
We’ve offered several classes on the mother sauces of Escoffier, but now it’s time to focus on some that are ethnic specialties—sauces that reflect the distinctive heritage and agriculture of a specific area. We’ll look around the world and make dishes with sauces such as Chimichum (Argentina), Romesco (Catalan region of Spain) and others. Each is quite different in ingredients and technique from the mother sauces, but they are all delicious, and will add a special touch to your meals.
Vegan Class – Tuesday, May 27th
For our friends who have elected a vegan diet and everyone else who would like to explore ways to prepare delicious vegetables and grains. We’ll focus on vegetables that are available in the Farmers’ Market right now, as well as legumes and meat substitutes. You’ll leave this class saying that you never thought plant-based food could be so yummy! No need to be on a vegan diet to enjoy these healthy dishes. You’ll be delighted at how delicious and satisfying these combinations of ingredients can be.
Thai-Vietnamese Class – Tuesday, June 10th
A favorite cuisine, using lots of fresh vegetables from the summer garden, as well as poultry and meat. Naturally low fat and healthy.
Ethnic Street Foods – Tuesday, June 17th
Just in time for summer dining, the distinctive and delicious dishes that are great favorites in parts of Asia, Mexico, and elswhere. Easy to make at home, with all the ingredients in the farmers’ market or local specialty grocers. A bright change of pace!
All Classes – 6:30–9:00 pm
$60. / person. Alcoholic beverages $10. extra
