July Cooking Classes at Sweet Basil Gourmetware & Cooking SchoolFeatured Classes

What do you do when 2 KIDS COOK CAMPS have sold out in June? Why say “Accio” & add a 3rd KIDS COOK CAMP for the week of June 5th-9th! Chef Lisa Brisch will be conducting this camp. There might be some wizardry involved. On the menu for Friday is Harry Potter Butterbeer Pudding Cookies. (Perhaps a Cheering Charm was used?)
Here’s a cliché that IS true: “Modern Pressure Cooker’s are not your grandmother’s
(or grandfather’s) Pressure Cookers.” They’re a lot safer and still great time savers in the kitchen. Valley Culinary Instructor J. Whiting will be at Sweet Basil on Saturday, April 29th for PRESSURE COOKER PRIMER and cover both stove-top and electric Pressure Cookers and DEMONSTRATE an amazingly wide variety of dishes that work great from meat, vegetables to rice pudding.
Whether or not your family name is Corleone or Soprano chances are they love Italian dishes. At ITALIAN FOR FAMILIES on Tuesday, May 2nd Chef Melissa Stockmar has some veri vincitori (real winners) like Cheese Ravioli Skillet Lasagna with Pesto Bread Crumbs & Parmesan Chicken Mini Pies.
PASTA PERFECTION on Tuesday, May 2nd will begin with learning to make fresh pasta & some beloved classics like Fettuccini with Vodka Cream SauceMushroom Ravioli with Roasted Tomato Sauce.
