Our first guest chef was Melony Whaley, a one-pot meal wonder who focused on just that. She was also great at roasting vegetables. She talked about the health benefits of roasting, and she was very informative on the different temperatures and timetables for preparing vegetables of varying densities. She was a real pleasure to work with in the kitchen.
 
Our next guest, Ellery Bordon, demonstrated a lovely authentic Cesar salad, which included a flavorful sherry vinaigrette. He also prepared a number of other salad dressings using ingredients such as Parmesan cheese, ricotta salata cheese, toasted sesame oil, watermelon radish, and many other delicious ingredients.
 
These classes are a really a great way to take control of what and how you eat!
