I hope with the pending snowfall that everyone has gone out and stocked up with a few days worth of groceries. Most of us in north Seattle are lucky enough to live walking distance to at least one grocery store, so we won’t be in too much trouble. And while you’re thinking about dinner, why not think about some upcoming cooking classes?
Local cooking classes fill up quickly, and most of January is already booked up. Coming up at the Green Lake PCC, you can register for “Warming Winter Foods of India” on February 2nd from 6:30 to 9pm. The class costs $45 for non-members ($40 for members) and will go through a variety of Indian foods like spiced tea and mustard greens with spinach. Sign up here and do it fast, because the class is limited to just 14 people.
And for the kids, space is still open in two PCC January classes. This Saturday the 21st, kids ages 7 to 9 can learn “Pizza, Pizza” without adult accompaniment. This class costs $40 for non-members and you can sign up here. For younger kids ages 4 to 6, bring them to “Stone Soup” on Friday, January 27th from 4 to 5:30pm. Register here.
Over in Roosevelt, learn how to make delicious raw desserts at Whole Foods, courtesy of Sara Beth (of Mighty-O fame). The class takes place on January 21st or on January 24th (two dates), costs $25 and is limited to 18 people per evening. Call 206-985-1500 to sign up.
Whatever you attend, make sure to save some leftovers for me.
Limited spots are available for a baking lesson with Linda at the Green Lake Irwin’s Bakery location. The lesson is Tuesday, November 8th from 6pm to 8pm, and costs $50 per person or $70 for a couple. You can prepay and reserve your spot by calling (206) 985-9410. But hurry – only 10 spots are available.
Learn how to make Irwin’s marrionberry pie, from the flaky crust to the signature filling. After the lesson, enjoy an espresso and a slice of pie on the house. For those attending the lesson, bring a 9″ ceramic or glass pie plate.
Interested in other cooking/baking lessons? Keep an eye on the Roosevelt Whole Foods and Green Lake PCC, both of which offer cooking lessons on a regular basis. November 14th, Whole Foods is offering a course in vegan holiday cooking, taught by Sara Beth of Mighty-O Donuts fame. This class is limited to 15 people, and you can reserve your spot by calling (206) 985-1500 (class is $25/person).
November 11th, learn how to make your own tasty granola at the Green Lake PCC. PCC cooking classes fill up extremely quickly, so reserve your spot online right away. The cost is $35 for members, and $40 for non-members.
