The Signature Pizza Class is perfect for pizza aficionados. You’ll work with three different doughs using three different flours and cook them in three different ovens (electric, gas, and woodfired). You’ll also have the opportunity to design your own unique pizza using our premium imported cheeses, salamis as well as vegetables and herbs harvested straight from our garden.

Class is hands-on and intimate so you will be sure to leave with recipes and skills you can apply at home.

Appetizer, salad, gourmet pizzas, iced tea and dessert are included.

Woodfired Mediterranean Workshop

Posted by / in /

CLASS DATES:
Sun. October 20, 2019 (3:00-6:30pm)

Our Mediterranean Class will give us the opportunity to enjoy healthy, authentic, and delicious offerings, inspired by my trips to Greece. Side dishes and desserts will be cooked in the Woodfired Oven and Memphis Grill smoker. Most of the ingredients for these classes come from our garden and local farms.

As always, we will be using the best seasoned wood and the finest charcoal and food grade wood pellets to enhance our cooking experience.

You will have some hands-on experience, but our outdoor woodfired cooking classes are largely devoted to demonstrations.

October should be perfect for eating outside on our beautiful deck, but if it is too cool or too hot, we can move inside to our elegant dining room. As always, we will provide iced tea and or watermelon lemonade.

Class is hands-on and intimate so you will be sure to leave with recipes and skills you can apply at home.

These special outdoor cooking classes are weather dependent. If we must cancel them due to rain, we will offer to refund or reschedule the class.

SPECIALTY MENU INCLUDES:

Cold Cucumber Soup
Spinach and Feta Phyllo Pie
Homemade Woodfired Pita Bread
Woodfired Chicken Souvlaki
Homemade Hummus with Greek Olive Oil and Greek Olives
Heirloom Tomato Salad with Sweet Peppers, Imported Feta, Fresh Mint and Toasted Pine Nuts
Orzo with Braised Lamb Shanks (Youvetsi)

Pistachio Shortbread Cookies and Concord Grape Sorbet

Ingredients
  1. Chocolate Streusel
  2. 1 cup chopped toasted almonds
  3. 1 cup semisweet chocolate bits (I prefer 64% Valhrona chopped chocolate.)
  4. 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  5. 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  6. Pinch kosher salt
  7. Cake and Assembly
  8. Canola spray
  9. 2 sticks unsalted butter, room temperature
  10. 4 cups all purpose flour + 2-3 Tablespoons for dusting the pan
  11. 2 teaspoons baking powder
  12. 2 teaspoons baking soda
  13. 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  14. 2 cups granulated sugar
  15. 4 large eggs
  16. 2 cups sour cream
  17. 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Spray oil into bundt pan and using a pastry brush, thoroughly coat all crevices of the pan. Add a few tablespoons of flour to the pan, shake and tap out excess flour.
  3. Whisk 4 cups all purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl. Using an electric mixer on medium-high speed, beat granulated sugar and 2 sticks softened butter in a large bowl until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes.
  4. Add eggs one at a time beating to blend and scraping down sides alternating with sour cream. Add vanilla and beat just to combine.
  5. Transfer half of batter to prepared pan, smooth surface. Sprinkle half of streusel evenly over batter, Scrape in 1/4 batter, smooth surface, and sprinkle with remaining streusel. The dough should fill 2/3 of the pan. (The remaining batter is enough to fill a mini bundt pan if you want to bake it and give it as a small gift!)
  6. Bake cake until golden brown and a tester inserted into the center comes out clean, about 45 minutes.
  7. Transfer pan to a wire rack and let cool in pan 20-30 minutes before inverting onto wire rack. Let cool completely. Then reinvert cake onto cake plate.
Notes
  1. You will need a 12-15 cup nonstick Bundt pan. Mine is made made by Nordic Ware. Be sure not to overfill your bundt pan. And do check it after 45 minutes with a toothpick.
  2. After you remove the cake from the oven, remember to wait no longer than 20-30 minutes before inverting the cake onto a rack to cool. Some of the topping will fall off. Don't worry. Most of the streusel will stick. After the cake is cool, reinvert it onto a cake stand. If not using immediately, wrap the cake thoroughly with plastic wrap. Cake can be made 3 days ahead and can be stored tightly covered at room temperature.
