March Classes:

 

Taste of Morocco
Wednesday, March 11th 10am $60
Thursday, March 12th 5:30pm $80


When people visit the cooking school they are very interested in my tagines. A tagine is a Moroccan cooking vessel with a cone-shaped lid. You will learn how to cook with this and make some wonderful Moroccan stews.

  • Preserved Lemons- everyone will have a jar to take home

  • Lamb Shanks- with tomatoes, shallots and spices

  • Tagine of Chicken- with preserved lemons and olives

  • Cous Cous- with preserved lemons and herbs

  • Hezzu B'limmoun- carrot salad with cinnamon orange dressing

  • Tomato Salad- with preserved lemons

 

Indian Curries

Thursday, March 26th   10am   $60

Saturday, March 28th   5pm   $80

 

It seems that everyone loves Indian restaurants but many people are unsure if the food can be made at home.  I will show you how accessible this cuisine is!  You will need to add to your spice collection, but luckily Vancouver has some wonderful Indian

markets to help you with that.

 

 

  • Fish Curry- cod in coconut curry

  • Chicken Korma- with yogurt and nuts

  • Palak Daal- spinach and lentils

  • Saffron Rice

  • Raita- yogurt sauce with cucumber and mint

  • Kheer- creamy rice pudding with pistachios

 

April Classes:

 

Dim Sum
Wednesday, April 8th 10am $60 

Friday, April 10th 5:30pm $80

 

There has been so much interest in the January Dim Sum class I'm repeating it in April!  I love small bites with big flavors. In this class we will be learning several cooking techniques: steaming, frying, and braising to make everything from soft steamed buns to crispy spring rolls- and more!

  • Vegetable Spring Rolls

  • Sausage and Chicken Pot Stickers

  • Crispy Wonton Wrapped Shrimp

  • Steamed Pork Buns

  • Sweet and Sour Cucumber Salad

 

Mexican Dinner Party

Sunday, April 19th 4pm $80

Tuesday, April 21st 10am $60

 

I love Mexican food that's not Americanized (without all the cheddar cheese). In this class we will be making elegant Mexican dishes that are very different from the typical Tex-Mex food that you find just about everywhere. 

  • Salmon- with tequila cream sauce

  • Marinated Flank Steak- with roasted corn and pepper relish

  • Green Rice- made with herbs and chiles

  • Mexican Salad- with jicama, cucumber, mango, orange and chiles

  • Traditional Flan- caramel custard

Details

 

Each hands on cooking class focuses on making a complete meal, or on making several dishes from a single category (such as all appetizers or all salads).  A typical class has 4 or 5 recipes and involves learning cooking techniques, shortcuts, knife skills and food safety.  You will receive recipes for all dishes made in the class and ideas for mixing and matching recipes.  Classes involve about 2 hours of cooking.  When the meal is complete, students sit down in our beautiful Burnt Bridge Cellars dining room for a relaxed lunch or dinner of your culinary creations.
