|SEPTEMBER, OCTOBER & NOVEMBER CLASSES
Tuesday, September 15th — FALL DINING – WITH A NOD TO YOTAM OTTOLENGHI
This is a class about Fall dining that will include a discussion about the cooking style of Yotam Ottolenghi, a masterful chef who likes to make vegetables the boldest part of a dinner plate. We think some of his recipes will inspire you to use more beans, legumes, and nuts, and as you do, accent them with a touch of Middle-Eastern ingredients and spices. Ottolenghi operates Nopi, a London restaurant, and has written Plenty, Jerusaleum, and several other cookbooks that are now in our stores.
Tuesday, September 29th – OUTDOOR DINING
On warm Indian summer evenings, there’s nothing like dining outdoors – especially when a member of the family likes to grill. We’ll share dishes we’d serve if Leon Bistro had an outdoor dining area, as well as techniques and recipes that work very well for that type of cooking.
Tuesday, October 20th – MEXICAN CUISINE WITH A NOD TO ENRIQUE OLVERA
We’re due for another class on Mexican cuisine, and this time, in addition to our selection of interesting dishes, we’ll check out the distinctive and inventive cuisine of Enrique Olvera, the famed chef of Pujil in Mexico City and now also Cosme, in New York City. He is known for his mole, which is “cooked for more than 200 days,” as well as other distinctive Mexican dishes. Olvera’s first cookbook in English will be available in October.
Tuesday, November 3rd – A FOND REMEMBRANCE OF JANIS JOPLIN: THE PERSON, HER MUSIC, AND POPULAR FOOD FROM HER ERA (THE 1960s)
