Lentils and pulses have long been the butt of many jokes but thank goodness they have become very popular with chefs and home cooks in recent times. There wouldn’t be a café in Brisbane that does not have at least one item on the menu that does not include lentils or chick peas or some other type of bean. Used in salads, soups, slow braises and many other dishes, they add so much interest.
Caroline Jones, owner/chef of Three Girls Skipping Café in Graceville have been holding monthly cooking class during this year and the next class this coming Wednesday is on Lentils and Pulses. We are getting in ahead of the game as 2016 has been designated by the United Nations as the Year of Pulses.
If you have been to Three Girls Skipping you will know the great range of salads they make which change daily and Caroline will share many of these with those attending the class. Long before baked beans were put in a tin they were cooked slowly with smoked meat, spices and treacle and this will also be on the menu along with a few other recipes.
The class will be at Executive Chef in South Brisbane and the cost is $80.00 per person. We serve light refreshments before class starts and you will also have tastings through the class. Come and join us for a fun and instructive evening.
If you would like to be on the mailing list for classes please contact Executive Chef and ask to be on their newsletter email list.
