Cooking Class

Saturday was my cooking class. Lots of kale, endive and radicchio! I was so lucky to have such wonderful participants, full of questions and ideas! I taught this class at a local cooking school that has opened in our town called In The Kitchen. It is a beautiful space, a pleasure to work in. Light, bright and a wonderful place to learn about all things cooking. Wendy Van Wagner opened this space, and when you meet her, it is obvious how talented and knowledgeable she is. After meeting her, I immediately wanted to go have lunch to talk more about food! Our little town really lucked out to have her expertise in our community. There is a wide range of classes available, perfect for every level of cook. It was a great fit for me.
We are over the pox now. It was really worth going through it for the peace of mind knowing she has life long immunity. Of course, it is a bit ironic that a "chicken pox is sweeping the county" kind of story is on the front page of our small town newspaper. I have appreciated all your wonderful comments on this topic.

Wish I could have attended! I love your recipes, and a few have become favorites, like the spaghetti squash with feta and sage leaves. I actually eat that at least once a week, now!
