The Comforts of Winter: Cooking Class Week 1

Fresh Ginger Cake with Meyer Lemon Cream

I have the good fortune of assisting with a cooking class. It is a 3-session series called “Creative Seasonal Cooking: The Comforts of Winter”.  The teacher of the class, Tom Hudgens, is a friend and colleague and is also the author of The Commonsense Kitchen cookbook and The Whole Hog Blog where you can find all the recipes  from the class.

One of my tasks is class photographer so feast your eyes on food from last weeks class and then take a look at Tom’s blog.

Dark red and gold beets

Winter Greens

The colorful seasonal menu is loaded with flavor and has inspired me to eat more winter salads this week.

Sliced Young Red Onions

Orange Red Onion Relish

The orange-red onion relish was the perfect addition to a chicken dinner this week and was pretty made with Cara Cara Oranges with their pink flesh.

Fresh Ginger Cake in the pan

The fresh ginger cake was topped with lemon curd folded with whipped cream but is delicious on it’s own.
