Cooking classes at the Captain Freeman Inn
Our last Mediterranean class for the season from Cape Cod Culinary is from Spain, Portugal and Morocco. Our chef, Carol Edmondson continues to amaze us with her simple yet healthy preparations for all to enjoy. Her classes provide a hands on experience while learning many helpful tips to make these recipes at home. Our last class is almost full with two openings left.
April 11, 2015- Spain, Portugal and Morocco
Where northern Africa meets southern Europe the flavors of Spain, Portugal and Morocco are all influenced by their common Mediterranean geography and shared history. In this class we will sample from each of these culinary cultures using their common flavors and their unique personalities.
We will bake Spanish flat bread flavored with olive oil, garlic and spices to serve with selections of Portuguese small plates using fresh and local ingredients, including salt cod and potato brandade, roasted sweet peppers and warm citrus olive salad.
We will create iconic Moroccan main dish tangine using traditional sweet and savory spices like cinnamon, cumin and saffron. Based on ingredients including macrona almonds, medjool dates and cornish hens and honoring the French, Arabian, African and Moorish influences over this exotic and delicate cuisine.
Finally we will learn the secret of couscous preparation and the difference that authentic techniques create in texture and flavor for this Moroccan pasta accompaniment to a flavorful tangine”
All of our cooking classes include wonderful wine tasting afterwards by Heather where we learn about the wines we will be enjoying with dinner.
