FLASH CLASS! SUFFERIN' SUCCOTASH!
 

Succotash is a Southern favorite but it's named after the word “msickquatash” of the Narragansett Native Americans of New England. Most famously made with corn and lima beans, it is much maligned (especially if you've ever had it with canned limas!).

Put that all behind you because today's succotash revels in flavor and creative ingredients that elevate it into its own success story. 

In this demonstration class, you'll learn the basics of a simple succotash, then we take it up a notch with a cranberry bean succotash with savory salsa and succotash tacos. These make great fall fare.  

(In case you're not getting the title, "Sufferin Succotash!" was a frequent outburst of cartoon cat Sylvester a gazillion years ago.)

MISO FINE
 

Miso? That's a soup, right? Okay, yes, but also no. As described by Bon Appetit, miso is a funky Japanese fermented soybean paste that's probably been patiently loitering in the back of your fridge for months twiddling its thumbs, waiting for you to realize its worth. Each dollop packs so much attitude (aka, umami) that you won't even recognize iceberg lettuce when it's transformed by a blanket of ginger-miso dressing.

In this hands-on class, you'll learn about the various types and flavors of miso then make an elevated Japanese miso shiitake soup, branch out to make crispy garlic glazed salmon, miso carrot puree, greens with ginger-miso dressing, and finish with browned butter miso cookies.

Program will run about 3 hours and includes an appetizer, main course and dessert, lots of cooking tips and techniques, and take-home recipes. BYOB wine (we recommend a light, fruity semi-sweet white wine).  

Please wear closed toe shoes to cooking classes.
