The Autumn Table Cooking Class on October 9, 2014 at the Holy Nativity Community Hall is all about the harvest leading up to the grand Thanksgiving meal. In this class we will cook from the harvest produce – apples, squash, pumpkin, peppers, chiles and enjoy it all with a glass of vino from the grape harvest. From my earliest memories growing up in Minneapolis, as soon as the weather would turn crisp and cool and before the first snowfall that often came at Halloween, that’s when the acorn squash would appear on our table. Baked with butter and brown sugar in the center, it was earthy and warm and well, a sign that autumn was here to stay. I’ve decided to jazz it up a bit with a stuffing of quinoa, dried cranberries and pecans, which would make a perfect meal on a cool autumn evening. This will be one of the dishes on our menu at the Autumn Table Cooking Class on October 9. Here’s the full menu of what we will be cooking on October 9:
Roasted Anaheim Chile and Artichoke Dip
Red Pear and Avocado Salad with Lemony Yogurt Dressing
Acorn Squash stuffed with Quinoa, Cranberries and Pecans
Hatch Chile con Carne with Black Beans and Veggies.
Apple Cinnamon Cake with Amaretto Cream
