In Our Kitchen—Our first Lunch Break Class

On October 15th we hosted our first Lunch Break Cooking Class.  Every Monday from 12-1, we're offering a seasonally-driven class with 2-course lunch (and a treat), featuring produce from our friends at the Neighborhood Farmer's Market Alliance.  Want to get in on the class?  Grab a friend, co-worker, kid, or just yourself, and sign up on our events page.  Herewith, the proceedings, in photos (yes, I use Instagram):

Rachael welcomes the class.  3 students were from out of town, visiting the shop for the first time.

First Course:  Romaine Salad with Warm Lentils, Pears, and Hazelnuts

Second course was a Butternut Squash and Apple Soup with Sage Croutons.  The croutons were made from Columbia City Bakery Ciabatta Loaf.  They were GOOD...

Students left with a Macaroon from Claire Ptak's fantastic book "Leon: Baking and Desserts." Claire has a charming bakery in London called Violet--worth a visit if you are in the city.
