August 23– Italian Summer Cooking, 5-8pm, $95
Friday, August 23 – Italian Summer Cooking
Happy Girl Kitchen Chef Suzanne is excited to offer this workshop that focuses on Italian inspired cooking. Here on the coast of California, we share a similar climate to much of Italy. Like the Mediterranean, the flavors of our summer produce are full and rich. In this workshop, we will prepare simple vegetarian food that will highlight the available harvest to make a delicious and varied meal.
Using the freshest peak season tomatoes and vegetables, herbs and fruit, we will make a tasty 5 course meal: crostini with olive caviar, tomato - basil - ricotta salad, warm cannellini beans with roasted vegetables, leafy green salad with vinaigrette and finishing with a fresh fruit crostata with tangy whipping cream.
While we work together in the kitchen, we will share various cooking and prepping techniques that will be handy for you to use at home.
We will share in a feast at the end of the workshop and enjoy the products of our workshop. All participants will receive a packet of recipes from the evening.
Please indicate any dietary restrictions when you sign up and we will accommodate when possible.
The evening will end with a seated meal where we enjoy the dishes that we prepared. Please feel free to bring a bottle of wine to enjoy with your meal, or during the workshop! We anticipate that this workshop will fill up, so sign up early and get your spot saved. The workshop will be held at Happy Girl Kitchen location from 5-8 pm at 173 Central Avenue, Pacific Grove 93950.
