Los Angeles Vegan Cooking Classes

Since I can't afford to go this time, I thought I'd let all of you know that there's a cooking class at Madeleine Bistro (Thank goodness they finally improved their website. Good work Chef David and Molly!) on Saturday, August 16, 2008 at 10:30am. Please take the class so I can live vicariously through you! You can read here about what a fabulous time I had at the cooking class I attended there earlier in the year.

Their e-mail announcement is as follows:

As always the class is filled with Chef David’s enthusiasm, humor, and passion for cooking and eating well. The class includes recipes and demonstration, questions and answers, and a three course meal. The classes are always fun and informative so bring a friend to share the experience. The cost is $75 per person; reservations required.

The theme and menu for the next class are...

August 16, 2008 cooking class:

Using Fresh Herbs to Create a Classic French Menu

Soupe au pistou
(Provencal vegetable and white bean soup with rustic basil pesto)
Grilled portobella mushroom with heirloom tomato “béarnaise”
(tarragon-scented hollandaise) , polenta and haricots verts

Cherry tart with lavender crème anglaise

While you're at it, go support the sisters of Spork Foods by taking a class or 12. They have their schedule posted through September, which means you'll have plenty of opportunities to experience the joy that is a Spork Foods class. You can read about the 2 Spork classes I took here and here.

The classes sound great! I don't think there is anything like that here in Brussels...maybe I (obviously without the skill as Molly et al) could get one up and running! Might be a cool way to meet vegans. Thanks for the inspiration...sorry you can't go this time. :(

I've enjoyed so many cooking classes at my local markets. I hope you'll be able to go to another one soon.

Check out for vegan cooking classes that are all hands-on, so you get to actually do the cooking yourself.
