Do you ever have one of those summer’s that altogether flies by? That was this summer. We’re still in the thick of it (hello, humidity), but I can’t help but think about Fall. Here’s what I’ve been cooking up…
Cooking classes at Sur La Table
Check the calendar in the next week for my updated classes for September. Some highlights are a collaboration with Matt Lewis of Baked in Brooklyn and the myth, the legend, Pat LaFrieda! If you like pastries and/or badass butchery, sign up now!
Farm Dinner at Meadowburn Farm in Vernon, NJ September 26th
I’ll be part of a team of 3 chefs cooking an Indian-themed farm dinner in nearby Warwick, NY. A short trip from NYC, the dinner will be held at Meadowburn Farm, one of the preeminent heirloom flower farms in the country. With dairy cows, sprawling gardens and our own wood-fired oven, this farm table dinner is sure to be memorable! Purchase tickets here. The farm was recently featured in the September issue or Martha Stewart Living!
Cooking Class in Burlington, VT, October 18th
I’ll be hitting the road and teaching in Vermont this October! Join me on 10/18 at South End Kitchen in Burlington. I’ll be teaching a Mediterranean Brunch class (with a farm table! And cocktails!) The menu:
- Smashed squash toast with za’atar and feta
- Sweet Potato, arugula and pomegranate salad with a sumac vinagrette
- Orange blossom yogurt with citrus and sesame
- Prosecco Cocktail TBD
The kitchen is connected to a cafe and the Blue Bandana chocolate company. You can even ‘bootcamp’ it and take their chocolate bar making in the afternoon. My cousin Sarah runs the cafe and cooking school and is a huge proponent of the local Vermont food scene. I can’t wait! Sign up HERE!
