You and me, Darling. Cooking together at last.
Very exciting news I’ve been waiting to share like a kitten wrapped in a box for Christmas.
So many people have asked me to teach them to cook or run a cooking class. But, after trying to figure out the place and time, I threw up my hands in frustration. Then, I thought why am I going to travel all over, schlep food and equipment, clean up after 20 people taste recipes and have folks go home and try to re-create it in their own kitchen with who-knows-what equipment?
The best place for them to learn – is in their own kitchen. And you know what? This is 2013 not 1913. We have video chats all the time on a myriad of devices. Why not cook the same way?
So I am. Here’s video to introduce the idea. That’s right. I am having a video chat cooking class. The class meets once a week for 10 weeks. There are 4 different days and times to accommodate your schedule. You will see me cook and I will see you. We can chat and I can answer any of your questions right then and there. No typing questions, no time lag. It is interactive. With a traditional cooking class it would be you and 20 more people very little hands-on. But, with a video chat we cook together. Here’s the catch -there is only room for you and 7 other members for each class period. So, it is a very exclusive and limited class size.
We will be cooking with me, and LEARNING about the week’s recipes from my BFF, Marty Davey, MS, RD, LDN. I will explain the How and Marty will pop in with a video explaining the Why.
Walnut Pecan Pesto with raw collards
The recipes include Nutty Thai Stir Fry, Apple Date Salad, Pear Stuffed Crepes, BBQ Tempeh Bacon Wraps, Girl-ish Figure White Bean Pockets, Raw Walnut Pate, Nepalese Dal, Morning Scramble Rancheros, Corny Bean Salad, and Chocolate Ice Creme Sandwich Cake and more.
We’ll cover how to use a knife, time a meal, read a nutrition label in 30 seconds, and substitutes for fats, eggs and dairy. Marty will look at the food connections to cancer, heart disease, diabetes as well as what are antioxidants and probiotics.
I will have a demonstration class to check your connection and answer any other questions you have. You just need your laptop or other device that can work with “Skype” type programs. If you have any questions, contact me and we will walk you through it. We set it up in about 10 minutes and I am NOT a tech wizard.
Writing the list of equipment and ingredients for the first class
There’s a 20% discount for registration before January 10th and I can only teach 8 participants in a class period. So, space is limited!
I am so looking forward to working with you to create de-lish dishes that, oops, happen to be healthy.
Oh, and you may even learn why LaDiva LUVS her immersion blender.
