Main Course Salads – Aug 13 1:00 pm–4:00 pm

During the dog days of summer, sometimes all you want to eat is a big salad.

Totally Tofu – June 18 1:00 pm–4:00 pm

Tofu is dull. Tofu is boring. Wrong! Tofu is a blank canvas for you to do your culinary art upon. And culinary artist Alyssa is here to teach you how to combine tangy, zesty flavors with tofu to create wonderful meals! For example, she’ll show you how to make marinated tofu with wasabi cream sauce, a black bean salad with cilantro lime tofu crème with chipotle-maple tamari almonds. We’ll also make a nutritious and creamy Asian cucumber salad dressing, a tofu “omelet”, and then Alyssa will demonstrate how to make a coco-banana frozen dessert “pizza”.

Asian Noodles – 5/28

If you’re looking to work lighter, healthier dishes into your daily routine, a good way to go is to take things you already like to eat, like, say, Asian style noodle dishes, and pump up the veggies and the flavors. It’ll be satisfying and delicious. In this class, Alyssa will start with a soba salad, topped with colorful greens, veggies and a lemon sesame vinaigrette with azuki bean croquettes. Next, we’ll make spiralized yam “noodles” with massaged kale and a garlicky cashew sauce and crunchy salad crumbles. Finally, Alyssa will keep it light with rice noodles topped with an Asian slaw tossed in an almond butter kaffir lime dressing.

We’ll be making a chickpea “mock tuna” salad sandwich, an eggless “egg” salad (tofu) sandwich, a soba noodle stir-fried bento with creamy cashew sauce and cucumber ume pickle, and finally, a versatile tahini-carrot-olive spread that goes good on everything.
