Schedule for Winter 2013
 

MAKE 2013 THE SPRING OR SUMMER YOU LEARN TO MAKE AND ENJOY SOME NEW FLAVORS!

Come join the fun at Company's Coming while you learn to cook - and enjoy some delicious new flavors!

There are lots of reasons to include a class at Company's Coming in your plans this spring or summer. First, you will learn some easy to prepare and flavorful dishes. Second, you will learn some new food preparation and cooking skills. You'll hear the class discuss all kinds of restaurants, food and wine issues. But best of all, in addition to meeting new people, you'll have a great time! And there is no better time to try a class than in spring or summer when we hope to be eating on our deck!

At Company's Coming, you will join other food lovers as the group explores the foods and wines of the world. Our classes this season will travel the globe from the United States to Peru, China and France and then on to Viet Nam, Morocco, Spain, and Italy. All weekday and Saturday classes start at 7PM and end around 9:30. Each class includes three courses, an aperitif and two wines to pair with the food. Weekday classes are $75 a person while Saturday classes run $80 a head.

Our "Friday Flavors" classes, held at least one Friday of each month, will focus on preparing three small plates from one area of the world at each session. A wine or aperitif will be selected to complement the food. Running from just 7 to 8:30, the Friday Flavors classes will cost $50 a person and are a perfect way to end the workweek - and begin the weekend.

Plan early if you want to have a Custom Class for a group of family, friends or business associates this winter. There is always an occasion that deserves a special class. We have been doing a wide range of custom classes for social occasions as well as some fun team building for professional groups. Each class was developed to suit the needs of the participants. We have extensive menu suggestions for you to draw upon. And remember, Company's Coming can come to you for a special class. Call or email Jinny to discuss.

Whichever class or classes you select, all are designed to teach you more than just cooking. At Company's Coming you'll learn some cooking short cuts and suggestions for wine pairings with each meal. The hands on participation style used in each class will teach you an "entertaining" menu easily replicated in your own home.

Make sure you come to a fun cooking class during the warm months of 2013!

HERE'S WHAT YOU GET:
Complete menu with recipes that highlight "cook ahead" possibilities. Classes include a discussion of any special equipment and the ingredients you'll need to prepare the meal at home. Suggestions of food alternatives to use in cases of dietary restrictions. Each class combines participation and demonstration. Class size is limited. Each session ends with the class enjoying the food and wine of the evening.

LOCATION:
Classes are held in the Fleischman's spacious, fully equipped kitchen. For classes that include a full dinner, the meal is eaten at the large table in the adjoining dining room or on the deck if weather permits. Their house is located off Connecticut Avenue within walking distance of the Cleveland Park Metro stop.

PAYMENT:
Weekday and Saturday classes meet from 7pm until 9:30pm. Classes during the week cost $75 per each session or three sessions for $210. Saturday classes are $80 each or two for $155.
