I’ve been taking on a few private chef jobs here and there, and between that and recipe testing for the book, I’m been in the kitchen non-stop this week! So I’m very much looking forward to kicking up my feet this weekend with a pitcher of these by my side, and also finally spending a little time exploring some great eating neighborhoods further into my new borough.
If you’re looking for a Brooklyn food adventure of your own this weekend, this is the time that I tell you the wonderful news that there are still 4 spots available in my Spring Super Food Suppers class this Sunday!
In case you missed it, last month I started offering open group cooking classes out of my DUMBO loft (which I now have all these sexy glamour shots of!).
Since everyone tends to skip town on weekends, I’ve added two new dates for weeknights in July and August, including one for Meatless Monday! Check out the menus (plus more info) below.
Quinoa Paella with Clams and Chard
Baked Fish Packets with Zucchini and Lemon Tahini Sauce
Shrimp and Collard Green Salad with Fried Shallots
Eggplant Caponata Toasts
THINGS TO NOTE
+ Classes are a mixture of hands-on and demo, including tips for shopping, preparing, and adding more healthy ingredients to your meals
+ All ingredients are local, organic, hormone and antibiotic free when possible
+ Menus are gluten-free with limited dairy and meat
+ Wine is included throughout class and dinner
+ At the end of the two hour class, the group sits down to a meal together around the table.
To grab a spot, click here and use the discount code FEEDME25 at checkout for 25% off. It costs less than a comparable meal at a restaurant, and there will be unlimited Lambrusco and Gruner chosen by your favorite amateur sommelier, ME!
Finally, and I’ll be doing a dedicated post with more info on this, I’m SO excited to announce that I’ll be teaching this fall at The Natural Gourmet Institute! I’d always thought that if I ever partnered with NGI it would be in the context of gluten-free eats. But instead, they’ve asked me to teach their first ever lecture series on food blogging! And after 8 years logged behind my laptop, dear lord, do I have a lot to share. More information on the program here.
I hope to see you in the kitchen (wearing a feed me phoebe apron) one day soon!
