VIETNAMESE CULINARY TREASURES
 

Vietnamese cuisine is viewed by chefs as the "nouvelle cuisine of Asia." Influenced by its neighboring countries and former colonial occupier France, Vietnamese foods also differ by region, the North looking more toward China for cooking techniques and ingredients, while the South is more heavily French in style and Southeast Asian in ingredients.

In this class, you'll learn the art of making pho, a traditional noodle soup served at roadside stands, fine restaurants, and in homes--for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Enjoy the soup with bahn mi sandwiches, including quick pickled vegetables and savory sauces.

Hands-on instruction, full meal and take home recipes (2-2.5 hours).  BYOB if you'd like.

DINNER & MOVIE IN HONOR OF JULIA CHILD
 

Come to our annual tribute to Julia Child's birthday. We're celebrating with dinner and a movie: Julie & Julia.

Julia Child championed cooking delicious meals with proper technique and minimal fuss and this helped make French cuisine more popular and accessible to the American home cook. You'll whip up some Julia Child inspired dishes (gougeres, moules marinieres, coq au vin with buttered noodles, and individual chocolate souffles with chantilly cream), and enjoy them while watching the movie on our flat-screen TV.  French wine will be served for the occasion.

This is a hands-on cooking class in which you'll be working in groups on several recipes. Everyone sits down to enjoy the meal (and movie). This is a long class -- plan on 4 hrs but you'll leave well-fed and with the evening's recipes to replicate at home.

Modern pressure cookers are a safe, speedy tool for the kitchen. Useful for more than just soups and stews, they can rehydrate dry beans in minutes and put a ready-to-eat risotto on the table in under 10 minutes. Even cheesecake comes out wonderfully moist in about 30 minutes.

  • 1-minute quinoa pilaf
