    Mole & Mezcal!
    with Dominica Rice of Cosecha


    Here’s a unique opportunity to work with a mole master! Dominica Rice of Cosecha has over 30 years of experience cooking in Mexico City and at Chez Panisse. Join her as she teaches you how to make traditional mole, as well as how to enjoy some of Mexico’s finest mezcals. Afterward, we will all sit down to enjoy a traditional Mexican supper comprised of moles made in class, such as mole Colorado de Oaxaca. Cosecha prepares everything from scratch every day, including handmade tortillas, pastries and complex traditional entrees, as well as seasonal salads and soups.

    Help! Green Tables needs Volunteers and Supplies

    to support the Garden Project Earth Stewards High School Summer Program – Dames come Cook, Talk or Donate!

    How can Dames help?

    Food and equipment donations – they need just about everything. For the kitchen, refrigerators, cooking equipment, pantry items. For the garden, gardening tools and equipment, gloves, sweatshirts, fleeces and boots. 

    Call Dame Tina Salter to donate (415) 860-5088

    Cooking demonstration, tasting or other class – the kids are ready to learn and want to find out how to cook the vegetables they grow, bake cookies or taste something new. A recent olive oil tasting was a great hit. Mondays or Tuesdays are best and plan on the class lasting approx. 3 hours. 

    Ladies, pick one day this summer and feel free to ask another Dame to join you…this is a time to have fun…

    Choose a morning or afternoon...10AM to 1PM or afternoon 1 to 4PM whatever works and if you can spare a whole day, maybe you would be willing to repeat the class for a second group. Each group will have about 30 kids per class.

    June 11 & 12,    June 18 & 19,   June 25 & 26  July 2 & 3,    July 9 & 10,

    Asian Dumplings Demystified

    with Andrea Nguyen

    Thursday, September 6, 2018
    6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

    Everyone loves dumplings. They make people smile. Making them with friends is extra satisfying. Join acclaimed cookbook author Andrea Nguyen to explore the world of dumplings. You’ll learn how to prepare fillings and dough, then wrap, shape and cook the dumplings to perfection.

    Andrea will help you master Asian dumplings, many of which require only supermarket ingredients. She’ll also share shopping tips and culinary history from her book, Asian Dumplings, considered one of the best Asian cookbooks by Cooking Light magazine and an International Culinary Association of Professionals award finalist.

    This is a 2-hour, hands-on class so be prepared for lots of cooking, eating and learning! The menu includes: Pork and Shiitake Siu Mai, Lamb and Garlic Chive Pot Stickers, Kimchi Dumplings, Har Gow Shrimp Dumplings and Sesame Seed Balls.
