We are having so much fun with our cooking classes. We hope that you will join us this summer for some good food and a great time. Moms, Dads, couples, and groups welcome to attend one of our pre-scheduled classes or we will happily schedule something just for you! You prepare some amazing recipes and enjoy a lovely and quiet meal. Best of all we do the clean up! It's the most relaxing time you'll spend in the kitchen this summer. Plus you'll take the recipes with you so it's easy to take the experience with you.
As always our focus is on whole ingredients, freshly prepared with simple techniques. You will be impressed with how Simple good food can be and how easily you can incorporate delicious recipes into your life. Value, nutrition, flavour and simplicity are our priorities. Sharing that will you is our passion.
Here is a list of our offerings!
June 9th - Vegetarian and Vegan
I've been having so much fun exploring vegetables that I thought you should join me. We all know that we need to incorporate 5 servings of fruits and vegetables into our daily meals but the question is how and will my family eat it? Well having found some amazing recipes along the way the answer is a resounding yes they will eat and they may even start asking for it! From dips and snacks to meals you can add to your monthly rotation this class will be packed with colours and flavours for the entire family to enjoy. We will make a few and I will send you home with more!
June 23rd - Middle Eastern
There is so much more to Middle Eastern cooking than just hummus. This class will give you a fresh perspective on a cuisine that is both healthy and delicious. And it is so easy to fit into summer eating. You will taste soon to be favorite recipes and of course get a few more to explore in your own kitchen.
July 7th - Indian
Indian food is always delicious but can be a little daunting for the home cook to explore. Once you start playing with all those spices, I promise you that you'll want to keep experimenting. From spice dips, chutneys, and rubs to curries and salads you will be able to try the full range of this cuisine.
August 11th - Market Fresh
There is nothing like a trip to the market to inspire my culinary creativity. August is nearly the peak of the season for so many vegetables and the market reflects that bounty. But what do you do with all those lovelies you bring home? This class will give you some ideas and techniques on how to best show off those market fresh ingredients.
August 25th - Whole Grains
So often we get stuck. We buy the same vegetables and meats and pair them with a rotation of starches. This class will explore grains and take you beyond bread, potatoes, and pasta. Once you are familiar with how to prepare new grains the flavouring options are endless. I warn you though, you may not have pasta for dinner for a while after this one!
September 15th - Canning and Preserving
OK this is the time of year I love! We have gotten into the tradition of buying ridiculous amounts of basil and making enough pesto for the entire year. But that is just one of the ways to enjoy summer all year round. Come and learn the best ways to preserve fruits and vegetables
Each class is $30 per person or $50 for a couple. Space is limited but if you have a group that is interested we are delighted to host a special night just for you. Classes are from 7pm until 10pm in Saint Lambert. Specific information will be given at the time of registration. To reserve your space email us at email@example.com
