Williams-Sonoma just released their April calendar and it is absolutely mouthwatering! They’re certainly kicking off spring with a month-long schedule of FREE, fun technique classes and food demonstrations which are sure to have you and your honey deliciously feeding your way into each others hearts.
You’ll enjoy 10% “student” savings on same day purchases from the store following your completion of a TECHNIQUE Class and you’re encouraged to contact your local store to reserve a space for all of the TECHNIQUE Classes as space is limited. Each hour-long class is dedicated to a specific topic led by one of their culinary experts and an overview of the classes are as follows:
From Scratch – Sausage (Sunday, April 3 )
Our next series of technique classes will have you excited about rolling your sleeves up and getting your hands dirty in the kitchen. Our first class uncovers the art of sausage making, a basic charcuterie skill easy to master at home! Learn how to select different meats, how to flavor and season, make delicious sausage blends for everything from breakfast sausage to classic Italian sausage and peppers for dinner.
From Scratch – Fresh Pasta (Sunday, April 10)
Pasta fresca (fresh pasta), pasta fatta in casa (pasta made at home), pasta fatta a mano (pasta made by hand), sfoglia (“thin sheets” of pasta), and pasta all’uovo (egg pasta) are all terms Italians use when referring to homemade pasta. Although the dough calls for just a handful of ingredients and the method is simple, making fresh pasta takes time. There is, however, nothing more satisfying than enjoying the delicate results of your labor at the dinner table. This class will walk through all the steps, equipment needed and some delicious ways to serve fresh pasta.
Sunday, April 17 – Eggs: Sweet & Savory
Packed with creative recipes and ideas, eggs are one of the most versatile foods. Prepared both sweet and savory – they can be served for breakfast, lunch and dinner, even snacks in between! Eggs are a great entertaining item for both casual meals and elegant occasions. We’ll teach you some of our sweet and savory favorites as we celebrate the egg!
The DEMONSTRATION classes focus on seasonal foods and entertaining – perfect for the couple who loves to host in-home social events. They do not require reservation and are held at 11:00 AM; unless otherwise noted.
