Hello faithful readers! I want to announce an upcoming cooking class event at my house.
The theme will be:
"Wild and Crazy Salads"
Friday the 13th (of March)
6:30-8:30 p.m. ($10)
Are you tired of the same old romaine or frizee? Are your carrots tired of being paired with tomatoes? Maybe you're looking for a little more nutrition.
Learn how to prepare the South American grain called Quinoa. Packed with protein and resembling cous cous or rice in texture, quinoa is delicious in a Lemon Garlic Quinoa Salad.
Move beyond taco salad for Mexican flavor. Instead, try a sweet and juicy Orange Jicama Salad spiced with some chili pepper.
Pasta salad can be more than just macaroni noodles, chunks of cheese, and oil. What about the rice shaped orzo pasta mixed with wilted spinach, garlic and parmesan?
If you're interested in this event, please respond asap. Space is very limited! If necessary, I may add a second night or an entirely different set of salads for another event (Winter Farro? Tomato Fennel? Slaw? The list goes on).
