I often teach private and group cooking classes. And sometimes, I travel and teach in delicious places besides my own country kitchen. November 23-29, 2019; and February 8th-15, 2020; I will be the Guest Chef and Cooking Class Teacher at Rancho La Puerta, the Organic Spa in Tecate Mexico. Please join me for fun and inspiring hands on vegetarian, farm to table cooking classes. Set in the heart of a six-acre organic farm, La Cocina Que Canta (“The Kitchen That Sings!”) we will cook our dinner with just-picked organic ingredients. The colors, aromas, and tastes that emanate from our meal are fun to prepare and amazingly delicious.
This is George. He came to me as a client wanting to create a vegan product. He brought his “oat almond cinnamon date” topping that he wanted me to help him perfect. After talking to George and getting an idea of what he was looking for we went into my kitchen to fine tune the recipe. There he pulled out all the ingredients he brought for me to use to make a tastier, crunchier vegan raw topping.
Marinated sun-dried tomatoes and kalamata olives make this a delicious spread for bread or crackers. And, it is fabulous as appetizer dip served with rainbow radish and carrots sticks. Organic green olives adds to the YUM and Fun. Served on my Vegan Gourmet Getaway Weekend.
Serves: Makes 2 large 4 square waffles; serves 2-4
Teff is a super food. Paired with cocoa and dark chocolate, these waffles are loaded with iron, calcium, and magnesium just to mention a few benefits. I like to add a little maca and lucuma to enhance my super powers. Don’t have them on hand? No worries. Substitute teff flour! Note: These are totally fun to eat with your hands.
