Had a blast in yesterday’s cooking class. Lots of happy faces as we spent our Sunday afternoon cooking delicious paellas and delectable Spanish tapas recipes. It’s hard to fully explain how cooking together in a group with a shared love and interest in healthy and delicious food makes me feel during the class. Just look at their smiling faces!
This class was a little different from the other paella classes. We made two paellas, a seafood paella loaded with shrimp, calamari, scallops, octopus, mussels and clams, and a chicken chorizo paella using organic chicken, uncured and nitrate free chorizo. The tapas dishes were simple but imparted delicious flavors to compliment our main meal.
We started the class with a delicious rendition of olive tapenade using mixed pitted olives, capers, sun dried tomatoes, tons of garlic and olive oil. Took us 5 minutes! But then we made the gluten-free
We then moved onto the cauliflower cakes with yogurt and caviar and the Moroccan spiced roasted red pepper salad and truffle almond salad. We worked in teams preparing each paella which made everything super efficient. Everyone got to make paella and enjoy eating it too! When it was all done, we could not wait to sit down and enjoy our fabulous meal! Next open cooking class is February 17, 3 pm:
