News and Fun Facts Announcing the new “Snap and Cook Club”. Each week I’ll be posting a recipe in the newsletter and teaching both savory and baking classes. Snap a photo of the dish you’ve made from either the newsletter or a class recipe (with you in it or just the dish) and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Each week one photo will be chosen to be posted in the next newsletter and/or other marketing material and the “winner” will receive a free online cooking class.
Come to class this week: smoked salmon pasta, shaking beef and chocolate lava cakes are on the menu. 3 week dinner series also starting this week.
What I’m Reading Tomatoes are taking over the market and perhaps your garden. I’ve had the pleasure of incorporating my garden tomatoes into my recent cooking classes. If you’re in the midst of this tomato wonderfulness, perhaps you’d enjoy the heartwarming story in “The Life-Changing Magic of Canning Tomatoes”
What I’m Watching Spice Box Travels has a new YouTube channel. I met Linda when we were writing a book of culinary essays together. Since then she’s taught cooking classes at various schools in the Bay Area, teaches cooking classes at Kaiser, has a newsletter and now a YouTube channel!
What I’m Cooking Smitten Kitchen posted a wonderful Corn Fritters which we loved this week. The family loved it even more when my song came up with the bright idea of a tasty sauce: mayo, smoky paprika, a bit of chipotle in adobo sauce. Just play with these ingredients until you get the proportions you like and mix it up.
