August 15, 7pm
Santa Monica, CA: Cooking Class at Wild Oats on 5th and Wilshire. Dressing up…creating fresh, delicious salad dressings. In recent years, salad dressing has become something you pour out of a bottle, not something you make at home. The trouble with this is that there are virtually no salad dressings made with great ingredients. Take a look: soybean oil and canola oil (both with significant health issues) are prominent on virtually every label. Don’t give up your salads, there’s hope! It takes about as long to whip up a delicious salad dressing as it does to tear up the lettuce that you toss it with. And when you learn how simple it is to make, you’ll never look at commercial salad dressings again. In this class, we’ll start with a brief discussion on the pros and cons of various oils, as well as the benefits of homemade dressings. And we’ll make a basic vinaigrette (and show you how to vary it almost infinitely), a savory asian dressing, a delicious caesar dressing, a creamy lemon tarragon dressing, a yummy Greek salad vinaigrette, and a tangy lemon pepper dressing. Everything will be made with organic ingredients, and there will be plenty of crisp vegetables (and yes, some lettuce) to taste the results. All recipes will be provided in printed form, of course.

(We should know, we just spent an entire evening looking at every label in the store for our upcoming shopping guide!) So come with comfortable shoes and get ready to learn your way around this great resource called Wild Oats!

August 29, 7pm
Santa Monica, CA: Cooking Class at Wild Oats on 5th and Wilshire. Three for the dough…working with sourdough grains. There’s so much confusion about grains these days, in particular foods made with flour. Is bread an empty carbohydrate, a nutritional powerhouse, or somewhere in between? Can pie crust ever be considered part of healthy diet? What about pancakes? Grains have a lot to offer, and it’s entirely possible — and even easy — to work with grains so that they nourish the body, providing a good source of important B vitamins, while remaining digestible. In this class, we’ll talk a bit about grains and their preparation, and then we’ll demonstrate the three items mentioned above (all prepared with organic grains and other ingredients): sourdough bread; yogurt dough, a delicious dough for making tarts and quiches; and delicious sourdough pancake batter. While we won’t be able to bake on the premises, it’s incredibly useful to know what to look for, how good dough smells and feels, and how to prepare your own — after that, the baking part is easy! Samples of finished products will be available for tasting, and of course, recipes will be available in printed form.

We usually think of steaming hot, comforting bowls of soup in the wintertime (and they’re wonderful, too), but many soups are designed to be enjoyed cold. These include the famous chilled soup from Spain, gazpacho. Did you know that in addition to the classic tomato-based version, there is a delicious white gazpacho with no tomato at all? The French enjoy smooth, creamy vichyssoise. And smooth, tart fruit soup is an amazing and delicious summer dessert.
While the summer harvest is at its most abundant, and the warm weather lingers, we’ll show you how to make them all. Of course you’ll sample the delicious results at the end of the class.

Wouldn’t it be great it there were a way in which we could measure this in you? We can! Find out more about this new form of sound technology called the BioWave, and how it can be used to assess health issues and assist in bringing the body back to balance.

Someone with celiac disease must eliminate not only wheat (and its forbears spelt and kamut), rye, barley, and oats from their diet. This class will cover some of the basic issues presented by celiac disease, as well as strategies for eating deliciously and well if you (or someone you know) is dealing with this challenging condition.
