Winter?!? It's over. Or so it says on our calendar. But we still have two more cooking classes to help cope with cabin fever.

April 4th: Grains, greens and beans. Get with the Mediterranean diet just in time for spring and learn to cook these hearty, simple, oh so healthful recipes, using spring greens from Maine with healthy grains (wheat, barley, rice, farro) and beans before. Hands-on class from 4:30 to 7:30 includes a great sit-down meal of everything we've made, a glass or two of wine, and a chance to meet new friends and old ones too.

April 11th: Olive Oil, how to choose it, how to use it, what's good, bad and in between. This class has twice been postponed because of blizzards. Third time we're hoping for a charm, looking forward to tasting a gamut of extra-virgins, then learning how to use the precious stuff for cooking and garnishing in a variety of delicious Mediterranean ways that are so great on a Maine table. Again, hands-on class, from 4:30 to 7:30 includes a great sit-down meal of everything we've made, a glass or two of wine, and a chance to meet new friends and old ones too.
