Real Vegetarian Food: Winter


A hands-on cooking class culminating in a family-style dinner served with wine and beer.

Chef Mike Weller is here to share delicious, mouth-watering recipes that just happen to be vegetarian. No fake meat, nor trying to adapt recipes that traditionally use meat. Here are four dishes that celebrate what plants provide, with flavors inspired from cuisines around the world. Whether you're a Meatless Monday, occasional vegetarian, or a die-hard vegetarian with years of meat-free experiences in your life, you're going to enjoy cooking and eating these dishes.

Tapas: Entertaining on a Budget


A hands-on class culminating in a family-style dinner served with wine and beer.

Are you somewhat broke after the holidays, but still feel like entertaining? Not to worry: tapas can lend themselves to hearty tasting, light-on-the-pocket group meals that can still impress friends coming over to chat over a few glasses of wine. In this class, Camila will share with you some of the recipes that the American college students she taught in Spain loved to eat when they went out, not only because they were filling, delicious, and Spanish, but also inexpensive! 

Desserts for the Non-Pastry Cook


While we have a wonderful series of dessert classes here at 18 Reasons, this class is not designed for those with a practiced hand on the bakers’ scale. This class is for the free-willed enthusiast, comfortable with throwing in a little of this and some of that, but frustrated by the discipline of dessert. Instead of relying on pastries from the local bakery for your next dinner party, come to this class, where Mike Weller will give you the secrets of the pastry chef.
