GF Cooking Class Schedule

 These cooking classes are taught by the Doctor and the Chef. Dr. Lisa Shave and Chef Kimi Reid.

June 5, 2013: Thai on the Fly
6:00 – 7:30 p.m.

Pad Thai prepared two ways – veggie and shrimp
Green Papaya Salad
Coconut Sticky Rice with Mango
Let's fly to Thailand for our June menu. Everyone's favorite Thai takeout comes to your kitchen. A new twist on salad by shredding green papayas will tickle your taste buds (this was one of Dr Shaver's favorites when she lived in Africa). We've all made lumpy rice by accident – now learn to make sticky rice on purpose. Smooth and delicate – a classic ending to a flavorful meal.

July-TBA: Hot Love in the Summertime
6:00 – 7:30 p.m.

Quinoa and Salmon Burgers
Pickled zucchini
Kale chips
It's summer and glutenfree BBQ's are waiting for you! How about a spin on the ol' burger and liven it up with salmon and quinoa? Learn about fermented foods, and chips that have a satisfying crackle and crunch that are not made of potato.

August - TBA: Mediterranean Mezze Platter
6:00 – 7:30 p.m.

Baba Ganoush
Grape leaves prepared two ways - vegan and Lamb
Fattoush salad
It's August and the heat is here. Delectable choices on any middle eastern dining table include the mezza – pick what you feel like. A staple is roasted eggplant dip (always served with hummus), a salad that goes a step beyond tabouli, and wrapped grape leaves (aka, dolmathes) - impressive on any table! And oh–so–delicious.

September - TBA: Munchable Lunchables
6:00 – 7:30 p.m.

Simple sandwich alternatives
Homemade nut butters and jam
Chocolate–avocado pudding with flax
Is it September already?  Back to school for kids, teachers and as adults, we can take lunches to go as well!  Look beyond two slices of bread, as we explore the versatility of some simple sandwich alternatives (rice paper rolls, brown rice wraps, etc.)  We will discuss simple fillings and teach you to make your own nut butters and jams. Avocado in a dessert?  You will say OMG after tasting this delectable and creamy pudding.
