Asian Take Out

When my children were little, we would have Asian Take-Out Parties.  Usually there was some movie or sports event on TV and we would open Chinese take-out and eat on the floor.  In this class, you won’t have to jump in the car.  Instead, prepare take-out at home.

Fall Buddha Bowl

Fall Buddha Bowls
October 7, 2017, Saturday
10:30 a.m.

For the last year, Chef Lucindy has been preparing the newest food trend at her hands-on classes at Terrapin Cove:  Buddha bowls—one bowl meals filled with hearty veggies, beans, rice/quinoa, and topped with nuts and dressing.  The key is in combining flavors and presenting a dressing/vinaigrette that ties them all together.

This class’s Buddha bowl menu makes use of NC’s fall bounty:

 Lentil Buddha Bowl (fall greens, sweet potatoes, green lentils)
Autumn Buddha Bowl (roasted fall veggies and apple cider vinaigrette)
Fall Panzanella Bowl (panetone, pancetta, and Brussel sprouts with Rosemary-Honey dressing).
Spiced Sweet Potato Squares with Brown Sugar Glaze
