Happy 2017! To start, we want to thank you so much for continuing to take interest in our classes, the programs of the Fullerton Arboretum, Yorba Linda Public Library and other locales in our community! We are so excited to announce our upcoming Table & Field 2017 class schedule with you.
Our Upcoming 2017 Schedule:
Celebrating Valentine’s Day – Fullerton Arboretum, Thursday, February 9th at 6:00 PM
There’s nothing more romantic on Valentine’s Day than a homemade dinner for two. Our meal rivals any that you’d enjoy in a fine restaurant, and we are using decadent Valrhona Chocolate to flavor our dessert – a Valentine’s favorite. On the Menu: Buckwheat Blini with Smoked Salmon and Crème Fraiche, Tableside Caesar Salad with Torn Garlic Croutons, Duck Fat Oven Roasted Potatoes, Steak Diane, and Salted Caramel Chocolate Mousse. Sign up here.
Don’t forget that our Holiday Entertaining Class at the Fullerton Arboretum will be held this Thursday, November 17th. Class begins at 6pm. The Jonathans will be preparing, from scratch, an entire holiday menu. As a class participant, you will get to experience all the preparations and instruction, receive a recipe booklet and of course get to enjoy the multi-course meal (complete with wine and dessert). Sign up here.
We have been away from our blog for several months, so it’s time for a big update! First and foremost, we are happy to announce a variety of upcoming classes! These new classes have been scheduled at the Yorba Linda Public Library and at the Fullerton Arboretum for the remaining 2016 and early 2017 season. Thank you so much to each of our loyal guests who have come to learn, laugh, and eat with us through the past seasons… we look forward to seeing you again! Read on for a list of class dates, descriptions and information. And then keep reading for personal notes from the Jonathans! Continue reading “Summer Update and New Classes!”
Did you attend our recent class, Farmers’ Market Fresh, at the Yorba Linda Public Library? If so, you may recall that we promised to post the recipe we used to create the Green Goddess-style dressing made to accompany the fresh vegetables. Well, here is that recipe, folks! Enjoy!
