Hey do you want to make pasta? – Date TBD ... $65.00 per person

Cooking Skills (Teen classes) – Date TBD ... $120.00 per person
This will be a three day (three session ) class since it takes more that one evening to learn to cook. The class sessions will cover working with protein (meat), sauces, vegetables and desserts. The class size will be limited to allow a more personal experience.

Adult Cooking Classes –
Friday or Saturday evenings 6:00 to 9:00 pm ... $ 65.00 per person
Sign up and we will email you the menu; plus, this is BYOB. Note that once you sign up for the class, more details will follow.

Barbeque Grilling –
We started with Rosemary Focaccia bread dipped in olive oil with herbs ... Yum -  it was hard to not fill up on it. It was washed down with a little wine/or beer that people brought (BYOB). We had an offset smoker running charcoal and apple wood and a gas grill with a searing burner. The corn for the corn salsa was roasted and smoked in the offset smoker before being mixed with the other ingredients giving it a nice smoky flavor. Sweet potatoes were foil wrapped and baked, Veggies (yellow squash, zucchini, mushrooms, onions, etc. were grilled on the searing burner. The chicken was finished in the gas grill, while the ribs and brisket were in the smoker. There were three sauces made on the stove: Kansas City, Vinegar and mustard and Texas Style - after having each a couple of times, I still couldn't decide which I liked better - they were excellent! After all that, desert was served, a Raspberry, Blackberry, Strawberry Trifle. It was light, delicious but unfortunately, no one was able to handle a second helping.  The class left stuffed and happy around 10 PM.

About our other cooking classes:

  • The first two classes were fantastic! See some of the comments here.
     
  • Classes are for cooking with economics in mind making bread, desserts, appetizers and entrees. We also look at how to take one item and use it for three dishes.
     
  • Cost for adult classes generally vary from $55 to $65 per person depending on what is being served (you expect to pay more for a steak than for chicken!)
     
  • We bring nutrition into the equation and consider the foods we eat and the value of freshness. However, this class is practical, so will talk about where we purchase our Buckwheat Sprouts and other local food.
     
  • We would be amiss if we didn’t include cooking for children. Here they learn how to read a recipe, cook a simple dish, roll bread sticks, etc. No one younger than seven, please.
     
  •  Also, if you'd like to see a class on a particular subject, let us know:
     Some ideas we are considering are:
    • A variety of ethnic foods
    • The other white meat
    • For Teens
    • Wine & appetizer pairings

We can handle groups as well, so just let us know your needs. Signing up must be a commitment with a credit card to hold the seat as we will close the class once we have reached capacity.
