If you’re looking for something to do this weekend, why not take a cooking class. There are two tasty options open to you.
On Saturday, at Sur la Table in Santa Rosa, chef Les Goodman is offering a tasty class on Tapas, those tasty little Spanish tidbits that have reached almost ritualistic proportions with the after work crowd in Spain. Among the recipes you will be able to add to your culinary repertoire will be Sweet and Spicy Marcona Almonds – Catalan Flatbread with Piquillo Peppers – Asparagus and Manchego Torta – Garlic Shrimp with Amontillado Sherry – Quick Chicken and Chorizo Paella. Tapas are a party in the mouth. This is one no foodie should miss.
Does your vent lean more towards baking? Then don’t miss the class being offered at Ramekins Sonoma, also this Saturday. Chef Michael Kalanty will lead you through a delectable array from a savory Focaccia topped with onions and herbs, a roasted garlic Focaccia, olive Focacca with Buffalo Mozzarella and Rosemary, Sweet Potato Pizza and Provençal Fougasse; all recipes designed to help any baker strut his stuff.
Still not interested? How about Biscotti. You can’t have a good, rich cup coffee without the accompanying Biscotti and after taking this class you will be able to knock out your own. Why be stuck with those packages of prebaked stale bricks when you can enjoy your own, fresh from the oven. At the Ginger Grill at G and G Market in Santa Rosa,Chef Betty Malfatti is offering a fun class on making fresh, delectable Biscotti. Now your great cup of coffee can have an equally great companion.
