Rarely do I give cooking classes, and the only class I’m teaching this year is coming up on Saturday, November 13th from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., in the comfy kitchen of a home in Menlo Park, CA. These classes are always a great social get together–I enjoy them because I get to know people better, and I never fail to learn a lot from those who attend. There are still openings in the class–if you’d like to attend, email me at AlindeSF@aol.com to register. Fee for the class including a full lunch is $45. Here’s the menu:
Gingered Butternut Squash Soup with Roasted Corn & Sage
Wild Rice Croquettes w/ Mushrooms, Seitan and Mushroom Gravy (or use basic recipe as stuffing)
Heavenly Vegan Mashed Yukon Gold Potatoes
Brussels Sprouts w/Lemon Zest, Golden Raisins, Toasted Hazelnuts and Hazelnut Dressing
Mixed Baby Greens w/ a Special Holiday Vinaigrette
Pecan Tart (Sweetened with Dates and Maple Syrup) with Rich Vanilla Tofu Creme (new recipe!)
MAKE IT A FULL DAY OF COOKING CLASSES!
Meredith McCarty and Susanne Jensen are both giving classes in the afternoon on November 13th, so why not take one of their classes in the afternoon and make a full day of it? It’s a really good idea if you are coming from a distance. More information on Meredith’s classes here, and on Susanne’s classes, here.
