Over at the Ferry Building, CUESA and Parties That Cook’s ~LUNCH HOUR CHEF SERIES~ is happening on Fridays this summer. Grab an apron for a hands-on cooking lesson, where you learn to make your own fresh summer sandwich and salad using ingredients hand-picked from the farmers’ market. Guests can relax and nosh at picnic tables after the cooking is done, or take lunch to-go.
The gourmet sandwich and salad series includes: grilled chicken sandwich with artichokes and hummus, arugula salad with grilled peaches, gorgonzola and pecans; and lamb and pistachio burgers with soft feta centers, and salad of watermelon, ricotta salata and pine nuts. Vegetarian options are available.
Can’t make it to the day class? There is also a series of Wednesday evening events: ~TANTALIZING MARKET TAPAS~. This class will include tips and tricks for selecting seasonal ingredients from the farmers’ market and integrating them into your everyday cooking. The recipes will include some California and international flair: pizzetta margherita: heirloom tomatoes, basil and burrata; Moroccan bisteeya baskets: chicken, dates and cinnamon; sweet corn galettes with bacon and sour cream. Heavy appetizers will be available, and complimentary wine. Vegetarian options are also available. Wines provided by tuttifoodie.com.
