Hello Friends,

If the photos above are not making your mouth water….they should! And the picture of the dessert is not even included but should be. You my friends are going to love this menu. The flank steak I came up with one day in the kitchen at lunch time. My hubby and kids followed their noses down to the stove to see what was cooking and they took one bite and fell instantly in love! In fact, they gobbled up every last bite! I knew I had a winner right there and then. With the exception of the rolls which I also came up with while experimenting in kitchen, the other dishes were inspired by some of my favorite restaurants while on my last vacation. I took one bite and knew I would be recreating them. And boy did I!

Here is what we will have cooking in my next class: Stuffed Flank Steak (stuffed with an herbed cheese mix and spinach) served with a marinara sauce, Sauteed Mushrooms and Potato side dish (I served this one as my taster in the last class….to die for!), Roasted Banana Squash Salad with a Pancetta and Fig Vinaigrette (no words for how good this is), Cheese Stuffed Rolls (YUM!) and an amazing light and fluffy Cheesecake with Berries ( I usually make my cheesecakes dense, but after eating one like this in Park City, I am converted!).

I will be holding these classes on Thursday, March 7th at 5:30 and Friday, March 8th at 5:30.

I am thinking of teaching a “from scratch” fresh pasta class with some amazing sauces, foccacia rolls with a tomato tapanade, warm goat cheese salad with a guava vinaigrette and a peanut butter and chocolate semi freddo for dessert the following week on either Thursday March 14th or Friday March 15th or both if there is enough demand. This menu is also out of this world good! I will send out an email hopefully later this week about it with photos. But please let me know if any of you are interested in this class. I will not be having any other classes for the rest of the month of March. Once I hear back from you all I will let you know if I will hold this class or not. 

My limit for each class is 16 people. I first demonstrate how to make all the dishes and then we feast! So come hungry! The cost of each class is $60.00 per person. * Please note the price change. Let me know if you are interested and I will contact you with more information about the class and tentatively put your name on the reservation list. When I receive your check, I will reserve your spot (31801 Via Perdiz, Coto de Caza, CA 92679). My classes are filling up really fast so please let me know if you are interested before you send me a check to make sure there is an open spot. For cancellations, I require a “5 days before the class” notice for a refund.

I have had a lot of requests for private classes. I have taught gatherings for birthdays, couples classes, or just someone that wanted to learn a past menu and got a group of friends together to learn. I love doing these party- like classes and talk about a good time! Please feel free to contact me anytime if you are interested in doing such a class. I require 16 people for a private class.

Anyone is invited to attend, so please feel free to forward this on to your friends, neighbors and family. I hope you can join me for another gathering of delicious food and a fun night!
