Staci Joer's Cooking - 103130

WISCONSIN FOOD FAVORITES: Demo
Ask someone from another state about the food of Wisconsin and they will most likely say “Beer, Brats, Cheese”. Yet, there is so much more! Wisconsin has some incredible local foods; you can choose from an extraordinary array of edibles: produce from apples cranberries to zucchini; ethnic sausages and grass-fed meats; fish from lake and stream; foraged foods; and specialties like hand-crafted beers and wines and cream puffs.

Tonight, Staci has picked out some favorites that will please your friends and family. You’ll sample…Brat-stickers with Beer-Soy Dipping Sauce; Captains Steak Joynt-style Beer Cheese Fondue with Captains "Chips"; Chicken Booyah; and Cranberry-Cherry Rustic Tart.

SOUTHERN COOKING: Demo
Again join Staci as she takes a peek at the culinary history of a traditional American region…the Deep South! The South is filled with wonderful foods based on the traditions of many different ethnic groups.

You’ll sample…Shrimp-n-Grits; Hot Brown’s; Southern Corn Pudding; and Shoofly Pie.

UPDATED IRISH FOR THE MODERN AMERICAN HOME: Demo
We’re going to celebrate the “Wearing o’ the Green” and St. Patrick’s Day with an evening of Irish Culinary History, some traditional Irish dishes, and lots of recipes.

You’ll sample…Staci's version of Corned Beef & Cabbage; Butter Braised Carrots and Potatoes Colcannon; Guinness Cupcakes with Chocolate-Whiskey Filling & Baileys Cream Cheese Icing.

YOOPER PASTY COOKING CLASS: HANDS ON
Pasty (rhymes with nasty--but that is definitely not its description) originated with Cornish miners who migrated to Michigan's Upper Peninsula in the 1800's. They brought with them their beloved national dish: the pasty. The Finnish miners that followed adopted these meat pies as their own (easily transportable for long subterranean days!), and the pasty became such a large part of the regional culture that there's an annual pasty festival in early summer.

Do you love them? Have you always wanted to make them, but didn't know how? Well, this is the class for you!

We're gonna “chop, dice, slice and bake up” a batch of pasties and each person will get to take home three (3) to eat or freeze. These delectable pastry pockets are filled with beef and pork, potatoes, onions, carrots and, of course, rutabaga! Note: Please bring a chef’s knife and a paring knife (safely wrapped for transport), an apron, and a baking tray to take home your pasties.

GRILLED CHEESE & MORE: Demo
Cooked bread and cheese is an ancient food according to food historians, popular across the world in many cultures. Evidence indicates that, in the U.S., the modern version of the “Grilled Cheese Sandwich” originated in the 1920's when inexpensive sliced bread and American cheese became readily available. But tonight, we are going beyond the weird yellow cheese squares and taking it up a notch. These sandwiches are hearty and filling and delicious, yet still give you that childhood comfort food feeling.

You'll sample...Gluten-free Grilled Cheese on Cauliflower “Bread”; Deep-fried Salami & Pickle Grilled Cheese; Whole Grain Grilled Buttermilk Bleu Cheese with Smashed Avocado & Roasted Tomatoes; and Brussel Sprout & Mushroom Grilled Cheese with Prosciutto.

BACKYARD SUMMER FAVORITES: Demo

Staci’s got some new and fun recipes for you to get you ready for the summer cooking season! These family-friendly recipes will get everyone excited for summer supper—they're even better if you eat them al fresco!

While thinking of summer coming, you'll sample...
Peanut Butter-stuffed and Bacon-wrapped Jalapenos; Beer Can Bacon Burgers Stuffed with Mushrooms, Cheese & Peppers; Backyard Smashed Spuds; Grilled Asparagus; and Pound Cake with Fresh Berries & Dark Chocolate.

Julie Toman Series - 103131

Let's Make Soup!
Soup is nutritious, can help maintain or lose weight and it’s tasty! It isn’t hard to make and can feed a crowd. It’s also great to eat half and freeze half. This can feed small families several times for the same effort. Making your own soup allows more control over ingredients, including more real food instead of chemicals in your diet.

This class will discuss some nutrition information and tips for using homemade soup in weekly menu planning. Participants will then make a variety of soups to sample.
Note: Bring containers because there should be some extra to take home.

Probiotic Drinks and Foods
Probiotics are good for you and probiotic foods/drinks taste good too. Find out possible health benefits of probiotic rich foods and beverages which include supporting the immune and digestive systems. Sample an assortment of drinks and foods from yogurt to kombucha.
Water kefir is a probiotic drink lower in calories than dairy kefir or yogurt and it is dairy free. It’s easy to culture, inexpensive and can be flavored in many ways. Sample different flavored kefirs.
Note: Take home water kefir culture so you can make your own. Class includes instructions, jars and kefir culture.

Demo Cooking Series - 103140

IRISH POTATOES ARE SMILIN'
Potatoes are enjoyed around the world, but the Irish, in particular, have featured potatoes in their cuisine for centuries. Potatoes can be stored for months and have traditionally been one of those ingredients that can sustain a family all winter. As we approach spring and St. Paddy’s Day, come to this cooking demonstration to enjoy a traditional Irish Potato Salad, as well as an easy Potato Chowder. Recipes will be shared to use at home while sampling Julie’s creations!

DUTCH DAY
For decades, the Dutch have celebrated the birthday of their monarchs at the end of April. Food is an important part of the holiday. Because the official color of Dutch royalty is orange, much of the holiday food features an orange hue. While our menu won’t be distinctly orange, it will be distinctly Dutch with Gehacktballen met Jus (meatballs and gravy) and Poffertjes (puffy pancakes). The savory meatballs are very versatile and leftovers (if you have any!) can be used in tasty sandwiches. The pancakes are served with butter and powdered sugar and provide a sweet end to the birthday celebration. Recipes will be shared to use at home to prepare Dutch Day treats for family and friends…while sampling Julie’s creations!
