Polish September 17

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. (This class can easily be modified for vegetarians – just let us know ahead of time!) 
THIS CLASS IS FULL. Please call to get on the wait list.

Ravioli & Tortellini September 26

Homemade pasta is so much better than store-bought!   You can cut it to make spaghetti or fettuccini, but tonight you will learn to make ravioli and tortellini. Fillings and sauces will be homemade. You will not go hungry this evening!

Dim Sum October 8

This is a fantastic hands-on class. Learn to make four outstanding recipes that can be served individually as appetizers, or all together as a meal. We’ll be making Pork Pot Stickers, Spare Ribs in Black Bean Sauce, Steamed Pork Buns and Zongzi (a rice packet wrapped in a banana leaf.) THIS CLASS IS FULL. Please call to get on the wait list.

Tagine October 15

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. Please call to get on the wait list.

Aaron Park will be in the kitchen making a quick and easy soup, as well as a long simmering stew using homemade bone broth.

Asian Fusion Seafood November 11

Asia moves to Maine and settles in with some great menu items in tonight’s class!
