Dinner Tonight: Spain


The Dinner Tonight series is for beginning-to-intermediate level cooks who want to learn recipes that they can recreate at home. Students will prepare both simple, weeknight recipes, and also dishes that can be made ahead of time for busy weeks. Each class will focus on basic knife skills and other techniques that will make cooking easier and more pleasurable.The cuisine of Spain reflects the rich and varied history of the country with influences from the Romans, Moors, Sephardic Jews and New World. Dishes are rich in olive and olive oil, spices such as saffron and cumin, as well as chocolate, potatoes and tomatoes. The food is simply delicious and easy to make. We will make such dishes as:


Sopa de Setas (Mushroom and Almond Soup with Fino Sherry)

Tortilla Espagnola (Potato Tortilla)

Ensalada Andaluza (Escarole, Tomato and Tuna Salad)

Coliflor Reboza (Cauliflower with Saffron, Pine nuts and Raisins)
