Chicken--EBTB (everthing but the breast)
CHICKEN – you just can’t have too many recipes on how to serve “The Bird.”  
Chicken is quick and easy to prepare…it’s loved by young and old… men, women and children…and it’s less expensive as far as main course proteins are concerned.
I have presented programs on how to use a roasted chicken, chicken breasts and whole chickens.
But I haven’t done a program on the other parts of The Bird…the thighs, the legs and the wings.
Stores always have sales on chicken parts so you can save more money with these dishes.
I'll prepare for you to taste
“TEA-SMOKED” WINGS with Homemade PLUM SAUCE;  
ROASTED THIGHS with MARSALA & MUSHROOM SAUCE served with ROOT VEGETABLE HASH
and the delicious BRAISED LEGS “COQ  au VIN”

Fall Harvest of Flavors
So many varieties of produce available in the fall; apples, mushrooms, sweet potatoes, green beans, kale, tomatoes, cabbage, beets, broccoli and the list goes on and on.  When you buy produce fresh and in-season it is generally less expensive and more nutritious. When food is not in season locally, it’s either grown in a hothouse or shipped in from other parts of the world, and both affect the taste. Compare a dark red, vine-ripened tomato still warm from the summer sun with a winter hothouse tomato that's barely red, somewhat mealy, and lacking in flavor. You know what I’m talking about! So tonight I am going to create a variety of recipes using fresh local produce to bring you a menu that will explode with flavor and color. You’ll sample…
Braised Pork with Apples, Mushrooms, and Calvados
Rosemary Mashed Sweet Potatoes with
Caramelized Shallots,
Green Beans with Wild Mushrooms and
Pear & Apple Tart Tatin

Classic Italian pasta dishes
One of the most popular ethnic cooking styles in America is Italian. Italy is actually a bastion of regional cooking styles loosely held together by a flag. Even though each region has its own specialties there are some techniques which will enable an individual cook from anywhere to cook like a native. I’ll pass on some of these techniques as well as serve you some fabulous pasta dishes from around Italy such as…
Pasta au Pesto with Cream, Green Beans
& Potatoes,
Spaghetti alla Puttanesca
(pasta with tomatoes, capers & anchovies)
Pasta Aglio e Olio
(Pasta with garlic, oil & aromatic herbs)
Fettucine alla Carbonara

Tomato Time
Tomatoes are a fruit and part of the nightshade family (like potatoes and eggplants), but they are served and prepared as a vegetable.They come in a variety of colors, shapes and sizes: large red beefsteaks are slightly irregular; globes are red, medium-size and round; plum tomatoes are egg-shaped and red or yellow (grape tomatoes are baby plums); cherry tomatoes are small and round, etc. And lets not forget the heirlooms! Native to South America, and brought to Europe by Spanish explorers, the tomato took some time to be accepted because tomatoes were thought to be poisonous, like other members of the nightshade family. It was not until the 1900s that tomatoes started to gain popularity in the US.
Tomatoes are versatile for cooking; they can be baked, stuffed, boiled, grilled, stewed and more. Today we are going to use tomatoes in a variety of recipes using a variety of techniques to give you a host of new recipes to try.
You'll sample...
Fresh Tomato Bruschetta
Fall Tomato Soup with Basil and Parmesan Crisps
Spanish Beef Stew with Tomatoes & Garlic
served with Polenta and Sauteed Grape Tomatoes

Bourbon, Bacon & Brown Sugar
“These are a few of my favorite things!"
And they are a flavor match made in heaven.  
Bacon draws out the smoky, woodsy flavor of the Bourbon and the Brown Sugar is a subtle sweetness that compliments both.
I’m going to bring these flavors to life in this ALL NEW! class featuring:
MIXED GREENS with RASPBERRY & BOURBON VINAIGRETTE with SPICED PECANS;
BACON MUFFINS with BACON JAM;
BACON-WRAPPED PORK TENDERLOIN with WHISKEY BOURBON GLAZE  
and the delicious BROWN SUGAR PIE. (You just have to try this pie…it may be your new Thanksgiving Pie instead of Pecan.)
