New Class – For the love of kabocha!


I will be doing another cooking class at the lovely Serendipity Cafe on October 19th from 4pm. The topic will be one of my favorites, kabocha squash. We will be making three things: kabocha soup, kabocha hummus and kabocha pie. I’m very excited as I love the crowd that hangs out at Serendipity Cafe.

I hope to see you there.

Hummus Workshop Summary

hummus-japanA little over a week ago I ran a hummus workshop at Serendipity Cafe here in Chigasaki. I had a great time and we ended up making nine different flavors of hummus. I’d have to say that eating nine kinds of hummus is a pretty good dinner to have. We also made flat bread. A gluten-free friend asked if she could bring some gluten free flour along and we successfully made gluten free flat bread for her and another participant who happened to be gluten free as well. We used two food processors and oddly enough the hummus that came out of the processors tasted quite different.

I have been asked to run it again so stay tuned for for an update on when.

I will be posting details for my next class on Monday morning so make sure you come back and check it out.


Hummus Workshop Announcement


I’m doing my first workshop. I’ve been wanting to for a long time but never got going on the planning but the lovely Lisa of Serendipity Cafe suggested it and I jumped on board. It’s almost summer and it’s the perfect time to start playing around with hummus recipes. I love hummus in sandwiches, as dip and by the spoonful. There are so many things you can do with it once you have the basics down.

Come join me in learning the basics of hummus. From there you will be able to experiment with different flavors and textures. We will make hummus and then eat a healthy dinner together.
