Puff Pastry made easy at The Depanneur Monday May 5th 6.30 – 9pm

Do you love flaky puff-pastry, but intimidated by the idea of making it from scratch? This class will change your opinion forever!  Come and learn how to make a quick “rough puff” pastry that can be used in a wide variety of dishes, both sweet and savoury. Puff pastry also freezes really well, so it’s easy to have delicious, flaky pastry on hand whenever you need it. In this hands-on class, you’ll learn to use your puff pastry to make Sausage Rolls, a seasonal Vegetable Pie, and an apple Tarte Tatin. Participants will get to taste their handiwork in class and take the rest of their creations home to enjoy! To register for this class (kids under 12 half price!), click here.

 

Food Revolution Day 2014 at Nella Cucina Friday May 16th 5.30 – 7.30pm (free!) SOLD OUT!

The third annual Food Revolution Day will be held on Friday May 16 2014 and this year the focus will be on inspiring kids all over the world to get excited about food and cooking from scratch. With over 40 million children worldwide now overweight or obese by the age of five (WHO figures, March 2013), Jamie Oliver now says it is the duty of governments, businesses, schools and parents to work together to help reverse this preventable situation, adding that:

“Getting kids cooking from as early as possible helps them to develop an essential life skill which will have a huge impact on their future health and well-being.”

I’m thrilled to be partnering with Nella Cucina, Harper Collins Canada and Sobeys this year to offer a free parent-child cooking class to celebrate Food Revolution Day 2014. In the class, each parent-child team will create some simple, from-scratch “real food” Jamie Oliver recipes and when we’re done cooking, we’ll sit down to enjoy the meal together.

Wondering how it will all work? Read about my 2012 Food Revolution Day cooking class and my 2013 Food Revolution Day cooking classes.

This class is brought to you thanks to the generosity of Nella Cucina, Sobeys and Harper Collins Canada. Each parent-child team will receive a copy of Save with Jamie and a Sobeys’ goodie bag!
