Do you love to cook, would like to cook more, or want to add new dishes to your repertoire? Then come join us and have fun learning to prepare an easy but impressive menu with Chef Becky Selengut.
The cooking demonstration will tempt you first with an easy and addictive grilled shrimp appetizer with “crack” salad. We are all supposed to be eating more greens and that will be easier once you’ve mastered a delicious Massaged kale salad with sesame and pumpkin seeds. The entree will fire on all fronts – a delicious vegetarian dish of chickpea, coconut and vegetable curry with tamarind-cilantro sauce served with a saffron rice pilaf. No menu is complete without something sweet so we’ll leave you with coconut ice cream and black sesame peanut brittle. Sommelier April Pogue will be suggesting some paired wines for the class which you’ll get to sip and sample along with the food.
The class will be Wednesday, March 16, 2011, 6:30 – 9:00 p.m. The cost is $50. You can reserve your spot by sending $50 through Paypal to angela.jayo [at] comcast.net. The class is limited to 16 students and you must register by March 10.
