Daily Inspirations and Adventures

Sunday Suppers

leave a comment »

Neilly and I signed up to take a Sunday Supper class in November.  She’s opening a home store in New Jersey early next year with her mom.  The store will include cooking classes so she just wants to check out how different ones are arranged to figure out what will work best for her.

Here is a little blurb about our class:

A pre-thanksgiving tutorial. Learn how to make an amazing holiday dinner with top chef alum Camille Becerra. The class will cover the classics, with a little twist. You will learn how to make a holiday feast in under 2 hours utilizing the freshest market ingredients. You’ll also learn how to smoke at home, a nifty trick – sure to impress. This class will be followed by a sit down meal for all guests.

MENU:

Kombucha Squash Soup
cumin crème, smoked almonds

Fall Fruits
(persimmon, pear, apple, figs, ect.)
arugula, marinated ricotta-salata

Stuffed Turkey Breast
chestnut, currant + sage

Bone Marrow-Swiss Chard Gratin

Cranberry Quince Chutney

Pumpkin Creme Brulee

Now . . . there is  slight possibility that I will thow up in my mouth (sorry!) when we do the bone marrow thingy but I’m going to try to stay strong because everything else sounds amazing.

Sunday Suppers are class-cooking-dining experiences, pairing friends and food. The classes are held in a waterfront loft in Williamsburg and are taught by local Chefs. The food is market fresh, local and organic and the approach is to create seasonal and fresh meals together.  I first found out about the concept through Mike.  He used to work with one of the creator’s (Karen Mordechai) husbands. AND they were actually both (randomly) at the Hampton’s Oustanding the in Field dinner the other weekend (small world!).  Neilly forwarded me the link to the cooking class, yesterday, asking if I wanted to participate . . . and I noticed Karen’s picture . . . put two and two together and there you go!

In addition to the Sunday Supper events they have some restaurant reviews.  Two are favorites in our Neighborhood (Karen and her husband live right down the street) . . .

Marlow and Daughters

And Bakeri (two words – lavender shortbread – YUM).

Karen took all of the pictures . . . here are a few others in her portfolio.

 I’ll make sure to tell you all about it in November!
