Mother's Day is that time of year when you can face paint your dad with flour! This sunday's hands-on pie class, taught by Chef Kristen, was for our young chefs ages 5+. They did a great job helping mom and dad mix, measure, stir and bake a lemon meringue pie and a chocolate cream pie. The chocolate ones were eaten on the spot! Starting off the day, Chef Jenna taught a hands-on bread class, while Chef Tina taught a hands-on chocolate class. Participants were greated with chocolate covered strawberries and mimosas! A great weekend was had by all. Thank you Moms for doing what you do everyday!!!! ❤🤗 @ Cookology

We kicked off Mother's Day weekend with Date Night (isnt it usually date night that turns a few of
us into mothers. 😁) Chef Kristen Desmond and Chef Tina Yannez divided this hands-on class into two of our commercial kitchens and taught everyone the intricacies of Thai flavors, herbs, vegetables and sauces to create one amazing meal. #datenightcookingclass

"Plant-based eating is not a diet, it’s a way of life. This class will share tips and tricks for making delicious plant-based, grain-free dishes that will leave you satisfied and feeling good!" - Chef Kristen Desmond

In 2008, Chef Kristen turned in her top-secret security clearance and management consulting job to indulge her passion for healthy cooking. Trained at New York City’s Natural Gourmet Institute, Kristen specializes in cooking and baking with whole, natural ingredients. For over 6 years, Kristen owned and operated her own food business, Flagstone Pantry, located in the Santa Barbara Public Market, featuring healthy California cuisine.

Fun things about her: she’s an eight-time marathon finisher, she loves to bake pies, and she volunteers at an urban farm in Washington, DC. In 2018, Kristen was featured on Cooking Channel’s Cheap Eats: Santa Barbara for her Cowboy Cookie. Kristen is always developing new recipes and has written guides and articles on a range of topics including buying cookware, setting and keeping fitness goals, and grilling the perfect steak.

Busy Friday in Ballston yesterday! We started out with a Cupcake Wars birthday for a group of very happy 8 year olds. They made a unicorn cupcake, a Nats baseball cupcake and a mermaid cupcake! They were all winners!
.
We ended the day with 23 folks who were on a date or with friends for our Thai Favorites cooking class! They learned to make Calamari, Pad Thai, Tom Ka Gai soup and more! We are working hard to make sure our new space, the chef instructors and the classes are what you would expect from Cookology. Thanks for the patience everyone and the positive feedback!

It was a night of homemade doughnuts, handmade pizzas, and a whole lot of fun at Cookology’s Doughnut Saturday Night Social!

Chef Ed taught our wonderful students how to made a fluffy, chewy, decadent yeast doughnut dough.

And what did they do while the dough was rising? Made pizzas, of course!

Then when the doughnuts were done, our students could fill them with homemade raspberry or blueberry jelly, top them with a rich espresso glaze, a creamy vanilla frosting, a glistening chocolate ganache- or all of the above!

Doughnuts, pizza, friends- no better way to spend a Saturday night! ❤️🍩🍕

Arkansas Passes Bill to Prevent Sale of 'Cauliflower Rice'

News of the Weird: Your food lobbyists at work trying to influence statewide food policy on Cauliflower. Ricing is just a way to shred vegetables or potatoes to make them easier to cook or use in recipes.

The new labeling law is meant to protect producers in the Southern state, which has a large rice industry.
