Cooking Class - Mediterranean

Thursday April 2, 2020

Please register by Monday, March 30

I LOVE Mediterranean foods. There are so many variations on similar dishes from Greece, Turkey, the Middle East,...All cooking classes are hard to narrow down what to make, but Mediterranean is REALLY hard for me. I first tried Syrian food as a child and I thought it was some of the best food I had ever had. We lived in Africa and had been invited to the Syrian Ambassador's house. The flavors were so different and fresh. I had several other pleasant run-ins with Middle Eastern and Mediterranean foods over the years and then was sent to work for a few weeks in East Jerusalem and the West Bank and my love affair was sealed.  So many wonderful flavors. I hope you can join us as we explore some simple but elegant dishes that I'm sure will become family favorites.

Dinner will follow the demonstrations so you can try all of the dishes you just learned about.   The class is for practical application in daily life, it is not a gourmet cooking class.  All classes are plant-based and whole-food oriented.

Class size is limited to 35. Please register early - Registration ends Monday, March 30.

Style: Demonstration          Cost: $5             Time: 6:00-8:30pm

Location: 3297 E. Poleline Ave, Post Falls, ID

Cooking Class - Indian Delights

Thursday May 7 (Previously scheduled for Thursday March 5, 2020)

Please register by Monday, May 4

I spent a month working in India - in little tiny towns doing surveillance for polio disease. Each day I would travel with a local physician and our driver. Each day they would share the humble food their wives had prepared for them that day.  I fell in love with the cabbage, lentils and flat breads they graciously shared with me.  Sometimes we stopped at roadside eateries. I once ate a delicious snack of deep fried fritters of chilis, onions, cilantro and some kind of ground up bean in a bowl made of a banana leaf... somewhere in the middle of India (literally!). For this class we will recreate some of my favorite foods and I hope you will learn to love them as much as I do. 

10/21/19 - Update!  I'm sooo excited!! My friend, and the amazing Chef Jamie Aquino will be cooking for this class!

Cooking Class - Savory Spain

Thursday June 4, 2020

Please register by Monday, June 1

Confession. I have never been to Spain.  But I fell in love with a vegetarian paella that a chef was happy to whip up for me at an authentic Spanish restaurant in Los Angeles. Los Angeles is like it's own world of food...just sayin'.  I have played around with additional recipes from Spain and some of them are just too good not to share. So we will be making a paella and a couple of other dishes that I'm sure you will enjoy.

Dinner will follow the demonstrations so you can try all of the dishes you just learned about.   The class is for practical application in daily life, it is not a gourmet cooking class.  All classes are plant-based and whole-food oriented.
