Join Katie in her Two Aprons Cookery kitchen in Lexington, Massachusetts for small group cooking classes that are fun, entertaining and informative. All levels of experience are welcome. Recipes are well-tested and the goal is for you to leave with the confidence to try these recipes at home. Hands-on participation is encouraged, though not required. You’ll not only learn how to prepare the recipes but gain equipment recommendations, shopping tips, make-ahead suggestions and kitchen hacks – even the most seasoned home chefs will learn something new. After about 2 ½ hours of instruction we’ll gather around Katie’s dining table to eat (and discuss!) all the dishes we’ve created. Looking for a private class, whether in-person or virtual? Check out my private event offerings.
Homemade Gnocchi + More Italian Favorites
Thursday, Feb 22
In this class we’ll cook up a feast of Italian favorites starting with an appetizer of Artichoke Olive Crostini. Next is the main event – Potato Gnocchi with a Brown Butter Sage Sauce. You’ve most likely had gnocchi at an Italian restaurant or bought it frozen at the grocery store, but making delicious, pillowy gnocchi yourself is easier than you think. Accompanying that will be Asparagus with Leeks and Pancetta and we’ll end on a sweet note with Tiramisu. Hope to see you for this class in the Two Aprons cucina:)
Middle Eastern Cooking – Market to Mezze
Thursday, Feb 29
Get ready for your taste buds to be awakened by the fabulous flavors of the Middle East. We’ll start with Baba Ghanouj, a smoky roasted eggplant spread, then it’s on to Hummus, probably the most popular Middle Eastern dip. Bake your own Pita Bread to accompany the dips….yes, it’s a fun and easy bread to make! Rounding out the menu are Stuffed Grape Leaves (“Dolma”) and Lemon Mint Slushie (“Limonana”).
Homemade Ravioli + More Italian Favorites
Tuesday, March 5
Learn to make ravioli from scratch and more Italian favorites for a delicious Italian feast. For a starter we’ll do my take on Tomato Bruschetta, main course is Spinach & Cheese Ravioli, on the side we’ll do Roasted Broccoli with Gremolata (a vibrant condiment of lemon, parsley and garlic) and end on a sweet note with Tiramisu. The homemade pasta is definitely the highlight! It’s so fun learning how to make the dough, rolling it out, then filling it with the spinach and cheese mixture. Hope to see you for this class in the Two Aprons cucina:).
