Cooking Classes – 2020

Our cooking classes last for four to five hours. Along with the multi-course meal that we prepare together, I also provide all beverages (including a glass of wine … or two!) and a copy of the recipe. I also have aprons available for the fashionistas and messiest of cooks alike, and am happy to answer any questions you may have about cooking … or anything else for that matter!

Thai Surprise

Sa, September 12th 2020, 10:00-14:00; €104-

In January, I traveled to Thailand for two weeks of cooking workshops,  fresh inspiration … and a little summer sun. Thus, the menu for our September class will be infused with lots of new ideas and delicious flavors. A few hints as to what will show up on the menu: fish, shrimp, glass noodles, fresh veggies, Thai herbs, bananas … but in what order and what dishes? This class is for adventurous spirits and those who aspire to be so.

* This class is almost full so I am offering an additional class on October 3rd. We’ll need at least 10 people to make it happen, so email me to reserve a spot!

Cooking à la Ottolenghi

Sa, September 19th 2020, 10:00-14:00; €104-

Yotam Ottolenghi is and always will be my favorite chef. His ability to create flavors is unpretentiously simple, and he has a gift for taking the best of what the cooking world has to offer and transforming it into something both innovative and delicious.

We will be making: spring vegetables with wasabi-ginger cream; soup with pickled cucumbers and yogurt; meatballs made of lamb, fennel and vermouth; and finally, caramelized bananas with miso.

Gift Certificates

Looking for a unique – and delicious – gift for a colleague, friend or loved one? A gift certificate from the essküche is more than just a present – it’s a fresh experience in flavor that will warm the belly as well as the heart. And, each certificate comes with a cooking spoon made out of cherry wood*.

*As long as supplies last.
