In the Kitchen - Plum Perfection
Instructor: Barb Agee

This fall, Barb Agee, long-time instructor and assistant at BSC and veritable fountain of information, is “In the Kitchen,” putting her own delightful spin on this free and informative monthly event. Join Barb for new recipes, product sample tastes, and free coffee or tea, compliments of Bayview.

Barb is plum-full of ideas on how to use this perfect late summer fruit in ways that don’t necessarily involve dessert! Try her Plum and Peach Bruschetta with Vanilla and Ginger as a wonderful way to start a meal. Grilled Plums and Pork Salad, with a hot sauce drizzle, makes an ideal lunch or light dinner entrée. You’ll also receive recipes for Plum Galette with Almonds in a Rustic Crust and Plum Caprese Salad

Discover European Cheese
Instructor: Leanne Willard, BSC Director

Many European countries have cheese traditions that go back hundreds, if not thousands, of years. Join Leanne as she explores the fascinating and delicious world of cheese. Cablanca, the creamy white, mild goat cheese of Holland stars in Cablanca Salad with Apples, Grapes and Figs, and Irish Cashel Blue shines in a Broccoli and Cashel Blue Soup. Pull-Apart Cheesy Onion Bread brims with Swiss Gruyere, while Creamy Camembert-and-Mushroom Pasta is a luscious ode to the famous French cheese. Norwegian Gjetost Fondue served with puff pastry squares, gingerbread and apples is the caramelly finish to the evening. There’s no such thing as too much cheese!

Anticipating the Holidays with Xinh
Instructor: Xinh Dwelley

We love it when Xinh visits us at BSC! She’s already thinking about the holidays and is ready to demonstrate how to make some of her favorites while entertaining you with her warm and witty personality. Start with Xinh’s Oysters Rockefeller, broiled oysters with a topping of sausage cream sauce and bubbly cheese. Coconut-Fried Mussel Lollipops atop Green Salad is Xinh’s riff on coconut prawns and her Oyster Stew, served with French bread is famous for good reason! You won’t want to miss this opportunity to see this local legend in action!
