Tagine June 18

Tagine refers to both a North African stew and the pot you use to cook it. Louisa will show you how to make an aromatic Chicken Tagine with Olives and Preserved Lemons. You will also get instructions on making your own preserved lemons, eggplant with chermoula (a sort of African pesto), couscous, and Moroccan shortbread cookies.
THIS CLASS IS FULL. See below for the next Tagine class.

Middle Eastern June 19

Denise Parker will be in the kitchen cooking up some delicious recipes. We’ll be making Crispy Falafel, Cauliflower Hummus, a Spiced Chick Pea Bowl with Couscous, and (not exactly Middle Eastern…) an AMAZING moist and delicious chocolate cake. (This class is 100% VEGAN – but omnivores will love it too! Especially the cake.)

Native American June 24

This is a really fun evening with Tim Andrews, sous chef at Henry & Marty and a member of the Mi’kmaq Tribe. Tim will lead us through a great menu including creative tapas, slow rabbit stew (that’s the one that didn’t get away!), flatbread, Indian cornmeal mush, and cactus juice.

Polish July 16

Louisa will make traditional potato and cheese pierogies with you – actually, you’ll be doing most of the work. In addition, we’ll enjoy borscht, cucumber salad and sweet pierogies for dessert! Louisa spent three years in Poland in the early 90’s, and has lots of stories to share while you’re cooking.

Pesto 3 Ways! July 18

Denise is back with a great pesto class! Pestos can be made from almost any herb, and can be served at breakfast, lunch or dinner to add a quick zest of flavor. Tonight there will be Walnut Sage Pesto, Basil Pesto and Pistachio Pesto, served as appetizers, tossed with pasta, and topping a burger.

Greek July 24

Enjoy making some Greek cuisine in this class with Chris Toy. We’ll start with homemade Greek pita and hummus with almond. After that, lamb shish kebabs with tzatziki and finishing up with rizogalo!
THIS CLASS IS FULL! Please call to get on the wait list.

Sushi July 31

Sushi is on the menu! We’ll start out making seafood wonton soup, then move right into the art of making a neat maki roll. (The key is, don’t overfill!) We’ll also have a side of steamed edamame.   THIS CLASS IS FULL. Please call to get on the wait list.

Join Chris Toy to make beautiful and tasty summer rolls and paht thai with fresh ingredients from the summer farmers market.
