To help expand their knowledge, Kraft is offering a variety of hands-on cooking classes using seasonal, local ingredients. "We take foods that might seem a little challenging or unapproachable and learn how simple it really can be, she says. The class size is small; you get recipes and learn all sorts of tricks." At tonight's Simple From Scratch class, for example, participants will learn how to make no-knead multi-grain bread, fresh mozzarella, roasted beet salad, vegetable barley soup and apple dumplings with ice cream and homemade caramel sauce.
The session, which runs from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Heirloom Gardens training center, 4460 Winona Court, is limited to five participants, but if it fills up, Kraft promises to schedule another one soon. In the meantime, shes offering a variety of classes, all vegetarian-friendly, covering everything from Brunch Favorites to Simple Indian. Sign up online at www.eatwhereulive.com or call 303-956-7203.
