Photos: Cooking Classes

Our first month of cooking classes has been a tremendous amount of fun! My co-chefs and I worked together to prepare some really lovely meals.

The photos below are from one of our January Simple Indian cooking classes. Over the next two months we'll be offering the Indian class again, along with Seasonal Soups and Breads and Simple from Scratch. Please contact Heirloom Gardens if you have any questions about the cooking classes or would like to attend!

My thanks to Brian for taking the pictures, and to Camille, Jenn, Derec, and Dave for allowing him to photograph during class.
