13th, Wednesday – FANTASTIC SALADS 4.0 (gluten-free), 10am to 2pm
*This class was originally supposed to be held last July 16 but was postponed due to Typhoon Glenda.
Salads are nutrient-dense, immunity-boosting, and cooling to the body. There are terrible salads out there (I’m talking about limp leaves with a side of vinegar some restaurants like to sell for P400) but the salad of your dreams – the kind that you’ll look forward to eating – is easy and doable. In this class, learn how to make 4 beautiful salads that will knock your socks and tastebuds off. You’ll get familiar with different vegetables, fruit, grains, beans, herbs, spices, and seeds that you can use to compose future socks-knocking salads.
On the menu:
Mediterranean chickpea, olive, and quinoa salad
Waldorf salad with sea salt candied walnuts
Black bean chopped salad with ranch dressing
Thai crunch salad with peanut dressing
RATE: P1850 if prepaid by August 11 Monday, P2150 after Monday (prepaying details here)
16th, Saturday – KILLER KNIFE SKILLS, 10am to 1pm
Learn proper slicing techniques (such as batonnet, julienne, dice, brunoise, chiffonade, concasse, and supreme) and you’ll find yourself spending less time prepping and more time savouring your home cooked meal. You’ll also learn how to care for, sharpen, and hone your knives. Class ends with a meal using the vegetables chopped in class.
RATE: P1,500 if prepaid by August 14 Thursday, P1,750 after Thursday (prepaying details here)
20th, Wednesday – DESSERT MAYHEM: VEGAN COOKIES, 10am to 1pm
Learn how to bake dairy-free and egg-free versions of popular cookies in this new class! Get familiar with using healthier alternatives to bleached white flour and white sugar as well as plant-based alternatives to butter and eggs.
Are vegan cookies any good? I’ve been vegan for almost 7 years and feeding dairy-eaters my cookies – yes, yes my vegan cookies bring all the boys to the yard. You won’t know the difference and they’re cholesterol-free, too.
*A simple healthy snack will be served throughout the class.
On the menu:
Oatmeal raisin cookies
Peanut butter crisscross cookies
Chocolate chip cookies
Double chocolate chip cookies
Please note: this class is not gluten free.
RATE: P1850 if prepaid by August 18 Monday, P2150 after Monday (prepaying details here).
27, Wednesday – PASTA PARTICIPLE 2.0 (gluten-free friendly)
Pasta is a staple in Italian cuisine because it cooks quickly and fills up your appetite quite nicely. But most pasta noodles are made with refined flour (which can spike blood sugar levels) and their sauces can be quite rich and unhealthy. In this class, discover how to make healthified versions of pasta favourites without sacrificing flavour, using vegetables, legumes, nuts, and herbs. We’ll also make fresh pasta dough without eggs – whole wheat AND gluten-free versions!
On the menu:
Spaghetti walnut bolognese
Spaghetti and lentil meatballs
Mushroom carbonara with almond parmesan
RATE: P1850 if prepaid by August 25 Monday, P2150 after Monday (prepaying details here)
