Fall Classes Announced!

August 9, 2011

I have a long story and an amazing guacamole recipe heading your way later today, but wanted to let you all know that I have added new classes for September and October.  You can read about them below and they will also be on under the Classes tab.  If you would like to reserve a spot, send me an email.  Hope to see some of you!

Fall Classes 2011

September – Weeknight Dinners
Wednesday*, September 21st 6:30-9:30pm  $60
Thursday, September 29th 6:30-9:30pm  $60  Class sold out – Email me to be put on the waiting list

As much as I love to entertain and make dinner party worthy fare, we all need to eat  regular food every night.  For me, a recipe that is quick and easy, but also tasty and satisfying, is worth its weight in gold.  In this class, we will make four different main course options along with a classic salad that goes with just about everything.  From a dressed-up version of grilled cheese and tomato soup to a spicy baked Chilaquile dish (no frying involved!), these are healthy tasty meals you and your family will enjoy with no fuss.  Recipes will include:

Leek and Tomato Soup with Ricotta Toasts
Broccoli, Rice, and Feta Cheese Sauté
Pasta with Chickpeas, Chile, and Rosemary
Black Bean Chilaquiles
Weeknight Salad with Red Wine Vinaigrette

October – Fall Seasonal Feast
Thursday, October 13th 6:30-9:30pm  $65
Thursday, October 27th 6:30-9:30pm  $65

While the summer farmers’ markets are pretty exceptional with their tables of berries, stone fruits, and summer squashes, it is the fall markets that make my heart go pitter-pat.  October is a true time of bounty in our corner of the world.  Our growing season gets started late and goes late which means that you can still find eggplants and peppers of all types while the mushrooms and winter squashes are starting to make their appearances.  In this class, we will make a bit of the best of everything from a rich gorgeous Eggplant Caponata to say goodbye to summer, to an Apple and Candied Ginger Crisp to welcome in the beautiful fall fruit.  Recipes will include:

Eggplant Caponata
Roasted Pear Salad with Fig Vinaigrette
Chanterelle Mushroom Risotto
Cider Braised Red Cabbage with Apples
Maple Roasted Delicata Squash
Apple Crisp with Candied Ginger

Coming in November – Favorites from My Family’s Thanksgiving Table
Coming in December
– Special Holiday Brunch and the 4 Doughs and 1 Batter baking class
