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

 

May Classes:

 

Spanish Paella
Thursday, May 7th 10am $60
Friday, May 8th 5:30pm $80

 

After living in Spain for 2 1/2 years I have made a lot of Paella. This class combines several of my favorite classic Spanish recipes.

 

 

 

 

 

  • Ensalata Mixta- salad with tomatoes, cucumber, olives and mixed greens whit a smoked paprika dressing

  • Pan con Tomate- toasted bread with garlic and tomato

  • Grilled Asparagus- with alioli

  • Paella- rice, chicken, shrimp and mussels

  • Torta de Santiago- almond lemon cake

 

Crab Cakes
Wednesday, May 13th 10am $60
Saturday, May 16th 5pm $80

 

I offered a crab cake class last year that filled quickly.  It seems like everyone loves crab cakes!  Learn how to make 3 different versions with a unique sauce for each.

  • Salad- with baby greens, grapes, gorgonzola, and hazelnuts

  • Baked Crab Cakes- with Spicy Remoulade

  • Curried Corn Crab Cakes- with mango aioli

  • Thai Crab Cakes- with orange and avocado salad

 

June Classes:

 

Summer Luau
Wednesday, June 10th 10am $60
Thursday, June 11th 5pm $80


I love visiting Hawaii and eating all the wonderful fruit and seafood. In this class we will be making some island favorites. The evening classes will be treated to Mark's famous Wine Tai's using Burnt Bridge Cellars Semillon. 

  • Tuna Poke- raw sushi tuna with onion and sesame seeds

  • Teriyaki Steak Skewers

  • Coconut Shrimp- with a mango curry dipping sauce

  • Hawaiian Macaroni Salad- the classic slightly sweet mac salad

  • Passion Fruit Crme Brle

 

Main Dish Salads
Thursday, June 25th 10am $60
Friday, June 26th 5:30pm $80


When it's warm outside salads make the best dinners. Many components of these salads can be made in advance and put together effortlessly. Many of these dishes are easily transportable- so they're great for a picnic or a pot luck.

  • Salad Bowl- hearty greens, red quinoa, black rice, roasted butternut squash, and fried halloumi cheese with a tahini- tumeric dressing

  • Salmon and Lentils- grilled salmon on a lentil salad with goat cheese and toasted walnuts

  • Thai Shrimp Salad- bold flavors of ginger, lime and mint

  • Tortellini and Mixed Vegetable Salad- with an orange dressing

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.
