This hands on class will develop this menu together as well as sit down afterwards and enjoy our creations in a delightful, freshly made meal. Like all my classes, this class assumes you already enjoy cooking and have some experience and love of cooking. Here you will learn new techniques, learn about new vegetables and ingredients and demystify many culinary traditions. Come and enjoy cooking in a friendly environment with a handful of other food lovers. The food is always vegan but the participants are often omnivores and all is good.
For this class we will explore another one of the great summer vegetables, eggplants! An international culinary tour of this versatile ingredient.
We will be looking at and playing with a variety of different eggplants and using them in various cuisines.
