enjoying a popularity that’s reserved for only the trendiest foods.

Aphrodisiac Foods & recipes
According to the FDA, there is no such thing as an aphrodisiac. But history tells a different story. Through the ages, some of the world’s most tempting foods were treasured as aphrodisiac. Some of these foods have a suggestive shape. Many have arousing aromas or a sensual mouthfeel. Some foods of love raise body temperature. And some make the eater’s lips plump up with kissable softness.
Tonight I’ll prepare a fabulous menu that features many of these “aphrodisiacs”. You can then judge for yourself if they “do the trick” or if they are just great recipes to serve to your friends and family. You’ll sample…
Lemon butter Artichokes
Cauliflower-crust Pizza with
Grape Tomatoes & Basil and a
Cucumber-Avocado Caprese Salad and
Dark Chocolate Cake with
Chocolate Buttercream

Using Bread in Everyday Cooking
Bread is a pretty fantastic food. It's the backbone of any sandwich, and is often used to accompany meals when entertaining. It's incredibly versatile, which means if you have a lot of it left over, you can use it in ways you've probably never thought to before. From soups to soufflés, you won't have any reason to toss that extra loaf with these ideas…

Food in Books & Movies
Knock-off recipes from Bubba Gump Shrimp Co.
Forrest Gump is a 1986 novel by Winston Groom.

Released as a movie in 1994 starring Tom Hanks.
“Anyway, like I was sayin’, shrimp is the fruit of the sea. You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, saute it. There’s shrimp-kabobs, shrimp creole, shrimp gumbo. Pan fried, deep fried, stir-fried. There’s pineapple shrimp, lemon shrimp, coconut shrimp, pepper shrimp, shrimp soup, shrimp stew, shrimp salad, shrimp and potatoes, shrimp burger, shrimp sandwich. That, that’s about it.” – Bubba

Spring Brunch 
The thought of putting on a brunch strikes fear in even the most dedicated cook. It seems like a complicated meal that requires you to stay up all night and then get up at the crack of dawn. But that is just not so! This class will show you how to plan and prepare a brunch that will put most "Bed & Breakfasts" to shame. 
You'll sample these easy, yet elegant foods...
Cauliflower Cups with Eggs (and also a recipe for Cauliflower crust pizza)
Baked Zucchini Fries
Breakfast Salad with Green Goddess Dressing
Fresh Fruit with Orange Cream
(this menu is gluten-free)

Asparagus
Asparagus is a harbinger of spring but is now available nearly year round. This vegetable delicacy has a flavor like no other; if I had to describe it, I would say that it tastes slightly like broccoli and celery with a little artichoke-y flavor, too. Asparagus is actually the sweet, tender, early shoot of a plant in the lily family. Tonight I will make several recipes featuring asparagus that will “wow” family and friends. You’ll sample…
Prosciutto wrapped Asparagus with Hollandaise
Crust-less asparagus Quiche
Cream of Asparagus Soup with lemon,
parmesan & thyme and
Asparagus Risotto

Pan Asian food is a variety and combination of Asian food such as Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Thai, and Vietnamese. This is not to be confused with Asian-fusion which blends elements of two or more Asian cuisines (or elements of Asian cuisines with those of non-Asian cuisines) to create new, imaginative dishes. Tonight you will sample several popular Pan-Asian noodle dishes that you can recreate in your own home such as…
Pudt Thai
Singapore Noodles
