Balsamic Vinegar Workshop
Thursday, September 6, 2018
Made from grapes, balsamic vinegar is known for its rich flavor and velvety black color. It's fermented in wooden barrels, much like wine, and the taste of balsamic vinegar intensifies the longer it is aged. It is wonderful on salads, fabulous with breads and has a host of uses for cooking. Tonite we will explore the world of Balsamic vinegar and sample some recipes that feature it as a main ingredient. You'll sample...
Boston Lettuce with Tomato, Balsamic and Blue Cheese
Seared Sea Scallops with Balsamic Drizzle
Roasted Balsamic Cauliflower
Strawberries with Balsamic Vinegar


Taco Thursday!
Thursday, October 4
Today we are going to explore the taco and think outside "the Bell". We'll explore the history of the taco including how Mexican silver miners likely invented the taco, how Mexican Americans in the Southwest reinvented it, and how businessman Glen Bell mass-marketed it to Anglo palates via the crunchy Taco Bell shell. I'll bring you some recipes for new and delicious tacos that are sure to please. You'll sample...
Cuban Picadillo (fragrant stew of ground beef, tomatoes and olives) served on crunchy taco with avocados 
Pabellon Criollo (Venezuelan Shredded Beef) on soft shells
Chicken Tinga Tostadas


It's gettin' Chili!
Thursday, November 1
Chili is the perfect winter food. It's a hearty and satisfying stew containing chili peppers, meat (usually beef), and often tomatoes and beans. Usually every family has their favorite, but I'm here to change that and introduce you to some "new classics" plus a couple of side dishes that finish out the meal. 
You'll sample...
Turkey Chili with Butternut Squash
Vegetarian Chili
Staci's World Famous Beer-laced Chili
Gluten free Cornbread
Super Creamy Cole Slaw (Hint--it's made with heavy cream)


Fabulous Steakhouse-style Holiday Get-together
Thursday, December 6
Steakhouses are great (particularly if someone else is paying) because you get to indulge yourself in a borderline dangerous amount of beef in the classiest of surroundings. But that's only part of the story. The unsung heroes that make any steakhouse visit complete are the sides and desserts. So, tonight I've put together a full classic steakhouse menu for you to make at home. It's more intimate and fun to eat with family and friends at home and by staying home you can treat everyone to a great meal without taking a second mortgage! I'll prepare...
Beef Wellington with Madiera Sauce
Hasselback Potatoes with Herbs
Creamed Peas
Flaming Cherries Jubilee with Ice Cream
