COOKING CLASSES

"I happen to believe that you should learn to feed yourself and maybe a few others. ... Instead of shutting down home ec. we should have just expanded it and made everybody take it."
- Anthony Bourdain

Pasta Bar Dinner Party
This event has something for everyone! We start by pre-cooking several types of pasta, often including one "regular" and one multi-color with veggies right in the pasta dough.

Guests begin with an 8" saute pan and select a sauce from at least 3 choices: marinara (red), basil pesto (green), or alfredo, lemon, or Asian peanut (regular or spicy). They can even mix two sauces to create a tomato-basil or vodka cream. They add their chosen pasta and give it a quick stir.

Then guests add any of a number of mix-ins. These can include veggies, meats, olives, and shellfish. The pan goes on the stove for just a few minutes to heat things up and is ready to plate.

Guests can finish their dish off with a variety of toppings including grated cheese or chopped nuts.

It's a lot of fun, and there's something for everyone, even vegetarians and vegans, and can also be lactose-free and organic on request.
