Escape to Provence!
Friday, November 7 6-9pm Kitchen Window Cooking School, Minneapolis
I love the bold, simple flavors of Provence – and the way that they highlight the essence of the ingredients with which they are prepared. I also love the wines of Southern France, so I am teaming up again with wine instructor Erica Rokke to offer this fantastic class with some of my favorite flavors of autumn – just in time to use as part of your Thanksgiving menu or inspiration for your own autumn dinner party. On the menu: Fall Salad with Roasted Beets and Toasted Pecans; Provençal Vegetable Soup; Chard, Potato and Wild Rice Tartletes; White Bean Cassoulet with Rosemary; Roasted Brussels Sprouts, Squash and Cauliflower with Garlic and Herbs; Two-Ways Apple Torte with Flaky Crust.
Demonstration Class $69 – wine pairing is additional. Registration Available Soon.
