Cooking Class

Holiday Cooking

Sunday October 23, 2022, 5pm.

Otis Orchards, WA

I love the holidays and all of the special foods that show up on our tables. I know you are supposed to eat to live, but I must confess, sometimes a really good meal - especially enjoyed with friends and family - is hard to beat.  We think we have selected some vegan, plant-based dishes that even non-vegan, non-WFPB folks will enjoy.

This will be a demonstration class, and we will enjoy dinner together. We hope to see you soon!

Cozy Cooking Class:  Soups and Breads

 

One of my favorite things about winter cooking is making soups.  Join us for this demonstration cooking class for a variety of soups and breads. Including how to make them in the Instant Pot or stove. The soups we plan to make are a white bean chili and butternut squash soup. Breads include a Middle-Eastern spinach stuffed bread, a no-knead hearty seeded bread, and savory yeast free / GF bread.  And for dessert, Pumpkin bars (gf)
