If you love to read and love food, “Novel Cuisine” is the right class for you. Join us in a book club for food lovers. Fully experience these books by not only reading them, but watching a cooking demonstration and eating the dishes inspired by the book. Join us in a fun afternoon; the class gets to be both book and food critic at once. The discussions are always lively and the food delicious! All books in this monthly series are available at Kitchen Conservatory. The book club cooking classes are led by Anne Cori, and everyone in the cooking class participates in the discussion while enjoying the food.

On Sunday, January 21 from 1 to 3:30 pm, we feature “The Seasoning of a Chef.” Chef and author Doug Psaltis describes how he worked through the best kitchens in New York (including David Bouley and Alain Ducasse) in order to become a great chef. We will discuss his book while dining on some of his memorable dishes, including lobster beggar’s purses with crème fraiche, poached duck breast with duck confit and sautéed artichokes, potato lasagna with tomatoes and eggplant, and candied black walnut tarts.
