Eventide Classes ~ Back by popular demand ~ If you're interested in any of the classes listed below, just respond by email to: email@example.com
All classes require at least 5 participants in order to hold the class. More often we run a waiting list and if you are on the waiting list, we will notify you if a space opens up in the class. All of our classes involve opportunities for hands-on practice ... and lots and lots of sampling of delectable foods! Thank you so much for coming to play in the Eventide Kitchen.
Lasagna Class (Cost:$20): Tuesday, March 29th at 1:30pm & 6pm ~ There is still just enough chill in the air for this one! In the span of this single class, you'll acquire enough skills to carry you through a lifetime of lasagna making. While we will cover the basics of traditional lasagna, Kim will take you through a few additional unique lasagna options as well. And of course, you'll need to taste them all ... We guarantee that this will become a frequently requested meal in your circles of friends and family.
Quick Breads Class (Cost: $20): Monday, April 4th at 2pm ~ It's true that many of the breads that we bake here have lengthy and sometimes temperamental preparations. Let Kim continue to take care of those breads for you! Then let us introduce you to multiple home-baked bread options, with or without yeast, that involve both simple and quick preparations. These will become your go to recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacktime breads, as well as the perfect breads to stash in your freezer and to give as special homemade gifts.
Pizza Class (Cost: $20): Wednesday, April 13th at 1:30pm & 6pm ~ Many of you remember this from last year! Come again or spread the word to anyone you know who hasn't had this much fun with food recently! The making of pizza dough will be quickly demystified, and then the fun begins with Kim's "think outside the box" approach to pizza preparation. We'll have lots of creative toppings on hand for your masterpiece, and you can be sure that you'll be inspired by the creations of your classmates as well. Trust us that there will be a regular pizza night in your household once you take this class.
Ravioli/Pierogi Class (Cost: $20): Thursday, April 21st at 1:30pm & 6pm ~ We continue to promise that pasta dough is so much easier than you think it is! You'll learn straightforward basics as well as lots of new strategies for filling and cooking (including ways to keep all of that delicious filling in the pasta!). If you aren't familiar with pierogies, then you're in for a real treat as we create and sample a few varieties of these incredible Polish dumplings.
Kitchen Basics & Food Safety Class (Cost: $20): Tuesday, April 26th at 1:30pm & 6pm ~ This was a customer request and we agree that it's a great idea. Come to this class if you really believe that you can't even boil water or make the simplest recipe taste good. We'll cover basic knife skills and cooking methods (you'll know what it means to sauté after this) as well as review and practice some tried and true combinations of flavors. Along the way, we'll also be reviewing ways to keep your kitchen, the food you serve and the people you that you feed and love safe from common kitchen hazards and bacterial threats. This is the most fun that you'll ever have in Cooking 101!
Cooking for Kids Class (Cost: $15): Sunday, May 1st at 2pm ~ We're extraordinarily lucky to have a few pint-sized customers who sometimes bring us their beautiful baked goods. Their spirit in the kitchen has inspired us to introduce this offering. Young cooks will have a chance to learn how to make a really impressive Kim-style grilled cheese, some spectacular veggies as well as some amazing cookies. Your little ones will be able to make a meal for you after this! We'll also be reinforcing some basics, like good kitchen hygiene and safety in the kitchen. While we expect a bit of chaos in this class, we still need you to come with your children - every student will need to have an adult accompany them, and for this class, participants will need to be at least 6 years old.
Quiche/Frittata Class (Cost: $20): Wednesday, May 4th at 1:30pm & 6pm ~ Mother's Day is May 8th and you'll really be able to impress any of the lovely mothers in your life after participating in this class! We find that quiches and frittatas unnecessarily intimidate lots of fabulous cooks and we're committed to changing that. In typical Kim style, she'll teach you not only the basics, but some innovative new versions as well, including a variety of quiche crust options. And if you think you can't whip up your own inspired frittata, you're wrong, and we'll be offering both the practice and the tasting to prove it.
Salads Class (Cost: $20): Thursday, May 12th at 1:30pm & 6pm ~ There will be no wedge of iceberg lettuce tonight! You'll be in the best possible hands to start conceptualizing salad in a whole new way. You'll have the chance to practice creating (and tasting) salads from every possible food group - lots of fantastic veggies to be sure, but also grains, proteins and even some sweet. Of course when you come to the home of the best quality olive oils and balsamic vinegars, you can also trust that you will learn some incredible dressing options for every occasion as well.
Cooking with Spice Class (Cost: $20): Tuesday, May 17th at 1:30pm & 6pm ~ This is another class that we've designed based on customer feedback, so thank you! One of the things that we hear over and over again in the shop is that so many of the herbs and spices that we carry sound intriquing and appealing ... and that you have absolutely no idea what you would do with them once you got them home. We can help! We'll be pulling a diverse assortment of spices from our shelves and experimenting with sweet and savory recipes of all kinds. Come play!
