Weeknight Meals: New Year’s Resolutions and Comfort Cooking

In the cooler winter months and with a new year upon us, kitchen cravings range the gamut from hearty comfort foods to the lighter fare of January resolutions. Which to choose? With Weeknight Meals, our new four-part series, you don’t have to decide! Each class will focus on big flavors and shorter preparation times. In two of the classes, you will learn to prepare seasonal comfort meals and the other two classes will highlight a lighter, but no less delicious, style of cooking. Tired of your weeknight standbys? Kick off the New Year and add a bunch of fun, new recipes to your weeknight-cooking repertoire. All of the recipes will be appropriate for weeknight cooking. Each class is $130, or $470 if you sign up for the entire series.

Part One: In this New Year’s Resolutions Class, we will explore weeknight recipes with a Mediterranean and Asian twists. Grains and legumes feature strongly in the cooking of these cuisine, and they also lend themselves well to healthy, weeknight cooking.

In this class we will prepare such dishes as:

-Warm Barley, Parsley, Roasted Squash and Chile Salad

-Vietnamese Chicken Soup with Black Rice

-Quick Paella with Cod and Saffron

-Red Lentil Dal with Coconut and Kale

-Baked Stuffed Apples with Honey and Nuts
