Everyday Tuscan – April 3, 2-4 p.m. SORRY THIS CLASS IS FULL

Come into the Tuscan Kitchen and experience the healthy harvest of olive oils, garlic, tomatoes and grapes.

Menu:

A soup made creamy with a touch of soft Mozzarella.  This dish is so elegant it can stand in for the main course with a salad and ciabatta.

Pasta variations:  three simple pasta toppings, each with only 3 or 4 ingredients that can be a starter, a light lunch or just a big bowl of comfort.

Bread dipping combos.

Pesce al cartoccio: seasonal fish, livened up with olive oil infusins and simple ingredients, then steam baked in parchment paper (also know as en papillote)

And for Dessert,  Chocolate Torte with Blood Orange Whipped cream. Assemble the night before in 30 minutes and serve as a suprise the next evening. Very Romantic.

 

Everyday Thai – Apr.17 2-4 p.m.

 

Picture yourself at the floating markets of Thailand buying lemongrass, coconuts, garlic, peppers and kefir lime leaves that you will bring home to make

a beautiful Thai salad with an Orchid Lime Salad Dressing ( made famous in BC.)

Buddha Bowl – lots of restaurants have them.  We’ll make up a few of our own all together as we chop, chop, chop.  (Bring a good knife and a cutting board)

Mango Chicken Skewer with Tangerine Peanut sauce

Orchid Lime Salad Dressing – this stuff should be illegal.  We’ll make the perfect summer potluck dish. Vegan, gluten free.

Dessert: TBA

 

Everyday Cinco de Mayo – Arriba! May 1,   2-4 p.m.

Lime, chilis, garlic and sun!

Grilled Mango Salsa and Guacamole

Lime/Coconut fish tacos.

Prawns al Mojo de Ajo with Lime-scented rice

Chocolate and Cayenne Pepper both in the same cookie.  Cookies by Diablo.

We’ll make all dishes mild and show you how to adjust the heat using our spicy oils as hot sauces.

 

Everyday HAPPY HOUR  May 15, 2-4 p.m.

Lynn will show you a variety of appetizers, many of which can be frozen in batches so you are always ready for guests to appear.

Empanadas with chicken apple and cilantro
Puff pastry crisps with basil pesto
Meatballs based on seasonal ingredients: Lynn’s latest creation was a sweet and sour version made with local plum sauce and served with yams, brussel sprouts and quinoa.  We will taste this version with both lean ground beef and with the Yves Veggie Ground Round made from organic soybeans. This is the flexitarian model of feeding carnivores and vegetarian/vegans at the same time.
Mini tiramisu bites- tasty one-bite sweets for your entertaining table.
Dipping Sauces:  We’ll show you how to boost dips and sauces with infused oils, balsamics and salts so your appetizers can have endless variations.
Balsamic beverages
