Indian cuisine uses the whole palette of flavors—spicy, sour, sweet, and hot all at the same time—making it something that wants to jump off the plate! With its array of spices and condiments and experimental attitude, Indian cuisine allows home cooks to get creative and adventurous.
Brunch in India is typically enjoyed on Sundays and consists of a variety of light snacks served along with Chai Tea. For this class, Sangeeta will demonstrate how to make some of her favorite brunch recipes from different parts of India. As always, she will be adding her own twists and creative approach!
This will be an interactive and hands on class.

Wine and food: two of the greatest pleasures in life! And who better to guide you through this Mediterranean feast than Bryan Hinschberger?
Join us for another delicious and delightful evening where you will have the opportunity to try some of Bryan's favorite dishes paired with some of his favorite wines.
Specific dishes and wines will be posted soon!
"Bon Vivant Imports is a national importer of family estate wines from Italy, Spain, Portugal, and Slovenia, based here in Boise, Idaho. After 10 years of working with incredible wineries overseas, we have a portfolio of wines that are made with minimal intervention, using eco-conscious practices (whether certified in something or not), have love and soul in each bottle, and showcase the native varietals of the land that they come from. As our name suggests, we are Bon Vivants: lovers of food, wine, travel… and all of it becomes so much more special when sharing with great people. So let’s have a class about how to do it right.
My background started in the kitchen where I have managed, head-chef’d, and started my own restaurant with my father. I’m not some NYC Top Chef… but I sure do like to cook. This class will be a blast, we'll talk about food and wine both separately, and together, and how to enjoy it all!" - Bryan
School is in session, and the kids are HUNGRY! Instead of handing them crackers or a sugary granola bar, give them something homemade that’s yummy and nutrient-dense. We’ll make No-Bake Grain-Free Energy Bites (with nuts) and Mexican Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding. Both recipes are grain-free and dairy-free. This will be a hands-on class where the kids will be doing the cooking, guided in small groups by our instructor, Kendy Radasky.
Adults are free with paid kid’s registration. Each child requires a purchased ticket.
Kendy's classes all include a focus on how to cook and eat well with kids who have food sensitivities. Most recipes are gluten-free and dairy-free, and some are also egg-free, nut-free, and/or grain-free. Ongoing, monthly series at the Co-op.
