Introducing the Gadgets n Gizmos series, cooking class parties where we feature one or more of our fave kitchen appliances at home. We have fun with our toys but best of all, they make it easy for us to create sumptuous dishes when we’re busy.  Playtime!  

Under Pressure!
Gizmo: pressure cooker, rice cooker

Stuffed endive goat cheese canoes, Chinese Five-spice Pork Shoulder with leeks served over red rice, Roasted organic squash with sage butter sauce, Mango flambé (gluten-free)

Freddie and David may have had a different kind of pressure in mind, but we agree that we can give love, especially when we taste the results!  The East-West flavor fusion came to fruition for Marlene and Jeff’s anniversary dinner. We featured a house favorite, pork shoulder, pressure-cooked to tenderness with leeks and Chinese spices, and paired it with the New England flavors of sweet roasted squash and sage. We’re replicating the menu because we love it, and know you will too. Capping the meal on either end are Stuffed endive goat cheese canoes and Mango flambé for starter and dessert. 

Take your cooking chops to the next level with The Refined Cook Culinary Series — cooking class social events where you learn to prepare healthy, gourmet dinners and meet cool folks in the process.

Wife and husband team, Marlene and Jeff, are passionate cooks and dinner hosts extraordinaire. They will show you how to prepare a sophisticated and fun dinner for a small group (you) and let you in on practical tips, shortcuts and plating techniques to elevate everyday meals into extraordinary ones. You can participate as little or as much as you want—think of it as a cooking class where you get to party, or a party where you’ll learn how to cook!
