Spring & Summer Cooking Classes

Spring & Summer Classes are posted at PCC. I'll be teaching Mexican Fiesta this quarter.
Mexican Wedding Cookies are just a few of the hands-on recipes that I'll be sharing this season.

Unveiled for the summer these buttery cookies will be served with a scoop of my Mexican Hot Chocolate Gelato and juicy berries. A play off of a traditional wintry dessert cozied up next to a steaming mug of Mexican Hot Chocolate, the perfect treat after playing in the snow. The summer version is equally delicious after a day at the beach or a long day spent gardening in the sun.

Hope to see you all there!
Happy Cooking!

Thai Noodle Palette

Tamarind is a must for Thai noodle dishes! That is the funky brown pulp in between the reddish orange chile paste and the garlic cloves. Starting at the Tamarind paste and traveling clockwise...next up garlic cloves, fresh lime, rice noodles, shallots, ginger or galangal and chile in some shape or form, whether fresh, paste or dried.

Palm sugar, Oyster Sauce & Fish Sauce are also traditional Thai ingredients.
