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: When you get home from work in the winter and it’s already dark out, you want nothing more than to eat something hearty and delicious and curl up on the couch with a glass of wine. This class will teach you some comforting, big-flavor meals that don’t take all day to prepare.


Students will make recipes such as:

-Sausage and Delicata Squash Carbonara

-Potato Latkes with Sautéed Beef and Roasted Root Vegetables

-Pork Chops with Greens, Mustard Pan Sauce and Quick Cornbread

-Turkey Chili with Hominy

-Fastest Fudge Cake
