Taste Bud Travels: Mouthwatering Mexico
Tuesday, September 2nd
6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Cooking Classroom, $30 per person

This class will be taught by Chef Ani. Dive into late summer cooking by celebrating the cuisine of Mexico, which is fresh, flavorful, and makes great use of sweet corn, tomatoes, melons and more hot weather favorites. We’ll go beyond the Americanized Tex-Mex that is often misidentified as Mexican food for some of the true flavors of Mexico- smoky spices, fresh herbs, avocados and citrus. You’ll learn all about the vast culinary landscape of our neighbors and the importance of the many forms of corn throughout Mexican culture. We’ll work with different types of fresh and dried chilies, make our own chile powder and learn how to tame the heat with one of the most refreshing beverages of all time- aqua fresca . Class has gluten free options upon request and has hands on opportunities as desired. Pre-registration is required. On the menu:

  • Aqua Fresca with Lime

  • Veracruzana Shrimp Ceviche

  • Elotes (grilled Mexican street corn)

  • Homemade Tortilla Chips with Smoky Salsa Roja

  • Posole (Mexican hominy soup with pork)

  • Tacos al Pastor

  • Sweet Chocolate Tamales

Ingredient Spotlight: Cracking the Code of the Egg
Wednesday, September 3rd
6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Cooking Classroom, $30 per person

This class will be taught by Chef Ani.  Eggs are one of the most complex, important and ubiquitous ingredients in modern cookery. When the white and yolk are kept together, you can produce creamy scrambled eggs, tender hard and soft boiled eggs and luscious poached eggs. When separated, the yolk produces rich sauces and creamy custards, while the white strengthens everything from macarons to batter for frying. The egg can play so many roles, yet it is one of the cheapest forms of protein available. The trick with taking advantage of this versatile, indispensable food is controlling temperature, selecting the right equipment and timing. You’ll unscramble the science behind choosing the best eggs, storing them properly, separating cleanly and how to master the basic egg cooking methods: scrambling, poaching, custard making and working with egg whites in desserts. While you can learn how to cook many things from cookbooks and videos, you’ve got to break a few eggs to make an omelet, and Chef Ani is ready to guide you through these essential techniques for eggs and reveal to you all of her egg-based tricks. Class has vegetarian and gluten free options available upon request and hands on opportunities as desired. Pre-registration is required. On the menu:

  • Tartine of Scrambled Eggs with Chives and Caviar

  • Salad Nicoise

  • Smoky Chickpea and Tomato Stew with Poached Eggs

  • French Style Omelets

  • Deconstructed Lemon Meringue Pies

Pre-registration for classes and select events required. See class description for specific instructions. Registration required no later than 48 hours prior to the class date.
