Upcoming Classes: July 2010
Looking for a fun and interesting culinary class? ICE offers more than 1,700 recreational classes each year. Here is a round-up of some of the classes happening this month:
July 7 These tasty, make-ahead alternatives to the traditional beef burger are perfect for a quick and easy weeknight dinner, whether you grill them outside regardless of the weather or use a pan on the stove. Join culinary educator Vicki J. Caparulo to prepare Asian-Style Tuna Burgers with Ginger Sesame Dressing; Lamb Patties with Tzatziki and Roasted Eggplant Salad; Spicy Southwest Cheeseburgers with Guacamole; Italian Sausage-Style Pork Burgers; Stuffed Veal Burgers with Saga Blue Cheese Butter and Fried Sage Leaves; and Tarragon Shrimp Burgers with Béarnaise Sauce.
July 10 Lollipops are both a great gift for friends of any age (and yourself of course!) and a perfect party treat. In this fun class, Pastry Chef Instructor Kathryn Gordon will lead you through the creation of a variety of colorful and delicious lollipops. She will cover basic sugar cooking skills, as well as how to flavor and pull ribbon candy. You will share and take home a variety of lollipops created with different sugar-related skills.
July 30 Barcelona Restaurant and Wine Bars are not located in Spain, even though they make you feel as if you were there, leisurely dining after a day filled with sunshine and museums. Rather, their six locations have allowed residents of Connecticut to enjoy tantalizing tapas and seductive Spanish wines. In this class, owners Sasa Mahr-Batuz and Andy Pforzheimer will take you through the making of signature dishes from their restaurant, with recipes that are also part of "The Barcelona Cookbook."
