The Sage Table
This is a new class at The Sage Table, created after many requests from students for a class for their beginning cook friends and family.
We will cover a lot, and you will walk away with new ideas for your grocery list as well as simple recipes and techniques that you can begin trying out next time you step into the kitchen wondering what to cook. Techniques for quick-cooking, delicious veggies, properly soaking and easily cooking grains and legumes, the yummiest healthy fats and how to use them wisely. Salad making, simple soups and curries plus more to be determined ;) Focus will be on simple, easy, healthful preparations, and of course you will leave with a printed handout detailing all you have learned, with instructions for some simple but impressive dishes.
As usual, class will be held in the kitchen of my beautiful home in a sprawling, modern Craftsman in North Oakland. It’s a 15 minute walk from the Rockridge Bart station and only a few minutes from the 51st/MLK exit off Highway 24.
Cooking is done with the highest quality ingredients possible, adhering to the idea of SOUL food: Seasonal, Organic, Unrefined and Local. As much as possible is purchased at local farmer’s markets in the East Bay. Classes are vegetarian unless meat is featured explicitly.
Sliding scale price is regularly $60-75 ~~ **Special for Meetup members: $50!!**
