The Joy of Cooking:

There will be Mayonnaise

Thursday, March 19th, 2020



I've been reading a lot of old cookbooks lately, and have been inspired to have a real TBT class straight out of my mom's early edition Joy of Cooking. 

So come live in the good ole days for a night... back when salad jiggled, there was bacon-wrapped everything, and a martini recipe called for 6 jiggers of gin* (true story, see photo!).

We will be going full-Betty Draper here:

assorted canapés on toast points


oysters rockefeller


consommé "à la royale"


filet mignon with béarnaise sauce, souffléd potatoes + creamed spinach


lemon sherbet, served in a lemon cup of course!


belgian endive with vinaigrette


baked Alaska



*dinner gloves, go-go boots, trapeze dresses, nehru jackets and BYOB optional

Waste Not: How to Cook Economically, Responsibly + Most of All, Deliciously

Thursday, March 26th, 2020



Working with Gather and planning the Empty Bowls event (Save the Date: Rye Elementary School April 16th!)has made me acutely aware of how much food we waste. 

In this class, we will review tips and strategies so you can create a pantry and refrigerator that will reduce your own kitchen waste... not only because it's a moral imperative, but also because root-to-stem and nose-to-tail cooking is often more delicious.

Our meal will be "scrap-based", so you can see how tasty your garbage can be! Feel free to BYOB. Read through the menu without the parentheses. See! It sounds like a dinner you'd order in a trendy downtown restaurant.
