A Thyme for Everything

Lee's Summit


Customer Testimonies:

"Hi Nancy and Jet,
I wanted to let you both know that our group had a wonderful time last Saturday. It was such a great experience that several couples mentioned they would like to do this again. Maybe a Summer cooking lesson. The layout was perfect and allowed everyone to see and hear. And the food was excellent. I'm not sure if I'm talented enough to make everything, but it will be fun to try.  Tom"
"It was such a nice experience being in your shop.  I enjoyed the cooking class with Jasper.  Everyone was so friendly.  Thank you again.  Donna""Last nights dinner class was a perfect 10.  From start to finish, each dish was something doable at home and delicious.
I would love the potato recipe.  Thanks for sharing and you do a wonderful job in your demonstrations.
Marti Wilkinson
PS. Barry thought it was your best so far and can't wait for me to make the dishes!"

Kathy Moore & Roxanne Wyss - The Electrified Cooks
Summer in a French Kitchen
                   
The French are known for incredible gardens, fresh markets and wonderful food, year round. We will guide your meal—even without a passport. We will use Suzanne Herrmann Loomis—and her cookbook In a French Kitchen, as our guide, but the dishes will be easy, so no worries about the meal being fussy or time consuming!  This springtime menu, which will be ideal for entertaining, will begin with Cake au Jambon e Persil (Ham and Parsley Bread). The main dish will be an easy version of Poulet Roti à l’Estragon (Roast Chicken with Tarragon); who knew you could work such magic with a store bought rotisserie chicken! Hericots Verts Breton, where fresh herbs season the green beans, round out the meal. For dessert, enjoy Lemon Cake with Strawberries (Gateau au Citron et aux Fraises.)
