Tuesday, December 06th 6:00PM - 8:00PM | $90

During the holiday season, Harriet Argue pulls out all the baking stops to make traditional favorites. Greek desserts have a unique combination of flavors that make them different from typical pastries, and each is amazingly delicious. Harriet will demonstrate four of these childhood favorites you’ll want to add to your holiday sweet list. We’re all familiar with Baklava, but Harriet will kick it up making a Chocolate version of this crispy, nutty, syrupy delight. Kourabiedes are a buttery, shortbread-type cookie, covered in powdered sugar. Ekmek Kataifi is one of the most popular Greek desserts filled with creamy Custard Crème, and when baked looks like shredded wheat. And we'll finish with Amygdalota, a crunchy and chewy Greek almond cookie. Light snacks will be served.

Homemade Spaghetti With Three Classic Sauces

December 09, 2022
Rescheduled to Friday, December 09th 6:00PM - 8:00PM | $90
(Previously: Monday, October 24th 2022 6:00PM - 8:00PM)

Hands-On Class

Pasta should be worthy of its sauce and vice-versa, so we're making Homemade Fresh Spaghetti for three delicious sauces. Mary Cooney will guide you through making fresh pasta dough for spaghetti. The three sauces don't require a lot of ingredients, but you'll discover how using high-quality ingredients and certain cooking techniques result in incredible dishes. Cacio e Pepe means 'cheese and pepper', and when perfectly executed is mouthwateringly good. Amatriciana is a classic Italian favorite with a rich tomato sauce made with smoky guanciale, a hint of chili (flakes), and freshly grated Pecorino Romano. Al Limone is luscious and generously cheesy, but the brightness of fresh lemon juice and zest makes this dish light and fresh.
