Marisolio has a great line up of cooking classes for the month of July. Classes are held the second and fourth Tuesday of the month. We offer two sessions to choose from, a 10 AM to 12 PM session and a 6 PM to 8 PM session. Class fee is $40 and all classes are held in our shop at 488 Main Street in Murphys. (209) 728-8853.
On Tuesday, July 12, Murphys own Cheese Lady (Judy Creighton) will teach “The Cheese Lady Cooks Mac & Cheese”. Judy has a big following in Murphys as a cheese educator and consultant. She is a lecturer and judge for the American Cheese Society and is a board member of the California Artisan Cheese Guild. To say she knows her cheese is an understatement! Judy’s menu for this class is delectable:
Drunken Cow with Edamame, Fennel and Rotini
Petit Basque with Roasted Garlic, Shallots and Gemelli
Honey Bzzz with Scallions, Artichoke Hearts and Shell pasta
La Tur with Conchiglie, Nectarines and Apricot Jam
On Tuesday, July 26, local chef Jenny Baxter will teach a class called “Culinary Journey with Jenny: Middle Eastern Cooking”. Jenny is a published cookbook author, former food editor and contributor for two local newspapers, and has had her own public access TV show called “Jenny’s Kitchen”. Jenny will demonstrate how to make stuffed grape leaves, as well as instruct us on how to prepare several other Middle Eastern dishes:
Stuffed Grape Leaves (Yebra)
Parsley Salad (Tabooli)
Cucumber Yogurt Salad (Khyar Bil Laban)
Garbanzo Bean Dip (Hummus)
Ground Lamb Meatloaf (Kibbe)
