Casual Cuisine – Pad Thai + plus ways to use Tahini

Tuesday, April 4

Casual Cuisine is a new class I’ll be teaching twice a month on Tuesday nights.  The menu will focus on easy weeknight meals that are full of flavor yet not take hours to prepare.  Each class you will learn some basic knife skills, cooking techniques, and tricks of trade to make cooking fun and easy.  Most classes will be full participation yet there might be come exceptions due to time constraints.   I hope you will join me for a fun night out with friends and leave class with new ones.


In this class you will be making three different dished using Tahini – ground sesame seeds.  Tahini is a nice alternative to peanut butter when it comes to some dishes. Its lighter in flavor than peanut butter, but adds the same consistency without overpowering your taste buds with sesame seeds.  If you have never tried Tahini, you’ll be surprised…….’hey Mikey, he likes it”.

Roasted Broccoli, Pad Thai (rice noodles, Shrimp, Egg, scallions, peanuts-optional, shredded carrots, pea pods bean sprouts), and Brownies will be our foundation dishes with Tahini being the common denominator.

I might just throw in a few more amazing options to use with Tahini.
