Boelter Cooking School and Lunch at Simple Cafe

Karis and I went to our first cooking class at Boelter SuperStore yesterday. It was taught by Chef Feker from Il Mito and the theme was Eating Local-The New Exotic. The class was $35 (for one hour of time) and included a $25 gift certificate for the store. 

Chef Feker cooked a Quick Pickled Radishes and Cabbage with Spring Asparagus and Arugula Salad.

It was delicious, light and refreshing and I hope I can make this at home sometime this spring.

I really enjoyed walking around the store after class and found three things to purchase: a knife sharpener that was recommended during class, a whisk, and a springform pan.

Boelter has more classes coming up, so check them out online if you are interested in attending one.

Our cooking class was part of a Cooking in the City group meetup. After class, Karis and I went to Simple Cafe on the East side with Carrie from the group.

I enjoyed Apple Crumble French Toast and it was fantastic. Karis ordered pumpkin pancakes and Carrie got a turkey hash.

  1. That store looks amazing...I'll have to make a road trip!

  2. Interesting to see your purchases and Karis's... Do need to pop in to this store. What are your plans for the springform pan?
