This class is back by popular demand! It will not be offered again this year. After living in Spain for 2 ½ years we ate, and I cooked, a lot of paella. This class will fill up quickly, so reserve your spot soon.

Quick Gourmet: Store-Bought Roasted Chicken

Like you, I am often out of time to plan and prepare a meal. Roasted chickens are my go to fast food. In this class we will be starting with this store staple, and ending with some amazing meals.

  • South American Chicken Pie- olives, capers, currents an tomatoes pair with chicken in the filling- then it's topped with a corn crust

  • Easy Chicken and Herb Dumplings- carrots, celery, onion and zucchini in a light gravy, topped with fluffy dumplings

October Classes

 

Arepas

Thursday, October 8th  10am  $60

Saturday, October 10th  5pm  $80

 

Arepas are cornmeal patties with fillings or toppings. They're a popular  street food in Venezuela and Columbia. Simple to make, delicious, and gluten-free!

  • Avocado and Grapefruit Salad

Pumpkin

Wednesday, October 14th  10am  $60

Sunday, October 18th  4pm  $80

 

I love all things pumpkin. With Halloween and Thanksgiving coming, pumpkin will be in season. What says "fall" more than a hearty stew baked right into a pumpkin shell?

  • Argentine Beef Stew- in a pumpkin shell with onion, green peppers, tomatoes, dried apricots, potatoes, sweet potatoes, and corn

  • Brazilian Chicken and Pumpkin Stew- onions, coconut milk, and cilantro, topped with cheese

  • Pumpkin Bread Pudding- topped with caramel sauce and whipped cream

During the holidays it's fun to try something new to surprise our guests. This menu looks complicated, but I'll show you how easy it is to make dishes that are this elegant and tasty.

  • Salade Lyonnaise- frisée and bacon with a classic vinaigrette, topped with a poached egg

  • Coquilles St Jacques- scallops and mushrooms in a white wine cream sauce with mashed potatoes and Swiss cheese, served in a scallop shell

Party Appetizers (menu coming soon)

I try to do an appetizer class every year before the holidays. Everyone enjoys having new ideas for holiday parties, or any time!

 

 

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.
