April Rains Bring Spring Greens:

Cooking From Spring's Bounty - April 14th from 10am to 1pm

  • Cooking Classes at CCV

Class is three hours from 10:00am  to 1:00pm, and includes the lunch YOU prepare along with local Gorge wines to drink. Some of the year's most luscious vegetables come to our plates in spring: fresh peas, artichokes, chives, spinach and spring onions. In our spring cooking class, you'll be using these spring delights to learn some valuable kitchen techniques, such as:

  • Make your own fresh pasta
  • Create and spice hand-made aioli
  • Make a fresh, quick soup that retains all those bright green spring colors
  • Create a super-elegant frozen dessert that takes no last-minute fiddling, a real blessing when you're entertaining

Class is taught by local chef and owner of Nora's Table:

Kathy Watson


  • Spring artichoke soup with curried aioli
  • Pappardelle pasta with fresh shell peas and snow peas, pancetta, cream, parmesan and a fresh farm egg
  • Lemon semifreddo with raspberry sauce

Class is three hours, 10:00 to 1:00, and includes class' prepared lunch and served with local Gorge wines to drink.
