Just by looking at these photos you could see what a fabulous evening was had by all. I had a great group of ladies who were eager to learn how to prepare healthy fall meals in a festive environment among friends.
We started the class preparing a vegan butternut squash and apple soup generously seasoned with my Moroccan Spice Blend. Then baked our lovely carnival squash and used them as soup bowls. Absolutely delicious and beautiful too!
We moved on to preparing our warm farro salad with caramelized mushrooms. This dish was simple but oh so tasty...if you like the combination of mushrooms and fresh thyme, this is a great side dish that you can prepare throughout the coming holiday season.
The turkey meatloaf preparation was my favorite part of the class. I watched as these lovely ladies worked as a team to prepare three distinct turkey and vegetable meatloaf rolls. Everyone took care in listening and following my instructions and the result was three beautiful turkey vegetable rolls that did not disappoint.
And let's not forget dessert. The fig galettes were so much fun to make together. Starting out with fresh sweet figs s the key to the filling being so incredible delicious. Adding honey and lime juice to the mix made it all the better. Again working in teams, the ladies rolled their dough, cut their rounds, spooned in the fig mixture and baked to perfection. I can't wait to do this special menu again on the 25th!
