    Foundations for Culinary Improvisation

    If you have a crazy, hectic schedule, then you might think it’s impossible to find time to make yourself anything other than the same routined meals over and over again. During this cooking-preparation class, you’ll learn how to create wholesome meals from scratch, that will taste as good as they make you feel! For all you recipe-bound home cooks who want to break free from tired cooking routines and take a first step toward kitchen improvisation, it’s time to get out of your cooking comfort zone. Enjoy the unique opportunity to analyze recipes submitted by class participants, and learn how to work those dependable recipes in your own original and improvised meals. As you begin to view cooking as a sequence of discrete and customizable techniques, rather than a plan you execute mechanically, you’ll find yourself finally kicking your typical boxed mac n’ cheese dinner to the curb!

    Systems of Vegan Cooking

    All Purple Kale workshops introduce systems and strategies for turning your home into a place a cook would want to work. You will learn to use good ingredients and solid technique, coupled with curiosity and safe experimentation, to create delicious meals. The Vegan workshop will help you create great food using a strictly vegan set of ingredients. You will address challenges particular to building a vegan pantry and plate, not so much the nutritional challenges, but the strategic and sensory ones — how to get away from stir fries, how to reformat what you think of as a “meal,” how to fill your belly without an over-reliance on nuts, “fake” meat, and potatoes. Do you have to be vegan to take this class? Of course not! If you have any interest in learning to create delicious food out of vegan ingredients, you’re welcome to join and learn.
