Day Three: July 13: Cakes and Cupcakes Today's class will focus on creating cake batters and learning how to cream, fold and stir properly: all the keys to making a tender cake not a tough one. Students will learn how to use a pastry bag and glaze fruit as well. We will be making Classic Yellow Cup Cakes with Chocolate Frosting; French Apple Cake and NY Style Mini Cheese Cakes with Fresh Fruit. Please bring a lunch or snack.

We will be making Raised Waffles with Strawberries, Maple Syrup and Whipped Cream; Egg Strata (egg and bread casserole) and can add cheese, bacon, ham or sausage to this.

By creating visually stunning “flavor grenades” to delight the pallets of his clients, Holland is exploding the conventional approach to fine dining. Entering the culinary world by training in a traditional apprenticeship, Holland had quickly taken an interest in Garde Manger aspect of fine dining and applied his creativity and background into designing elaborate fruit and vegetable displays for events in the hotel and fine dining industry. From carved floral displays to "Monkey Kingdoms" carved out of taro root and underwater themes with fish from yellow and green squash, Holland’s “outside the box” approach to sculpting has had Bob Marley's portrait in a watermelon.  “I am always pushing myself to set the bar higher, and to take risks.” Amongst the many talents Holland has in the kitchen, he finds great satisfaction in deconstructing simple, home-style recipes, and turning them into flavor-full, non-traditional presentations. Accompanied with elaborate garnishes to set the plates apart.   Chef Holland is married, with two children, and is constantly inspired by his two daughters to approach the world with curiosity and adventure.

Come join us for 2 great classes that will get you shopping the Hudson Farmers Market with Chef Ellen Velez.  Get to know where your food comes from and experience true farm to table dining.  You do not need to take both classes, but once you take the first you will be hooked and want to take the second.  Please note that menus are subject to change based on what is available at the market on the day of class. Farmer's Market Cooking Class Part II Chef Ellen Velez Saturday August 13, 2016 11:00 - 2:00 pm $75 Time to hit the market again.  We will meet at the Western Reserve School of Cooking kitchen and then depart for the quick walk across the street to the Hudson Farmer's Market.  Chef Ellen will guide you through a tour of the market and we will purchase ingredients for the days menu.  Please note that menus are subject to change based on the ingredients found at the market as they are always changing.  It is good to be able to know what you can substitute on the fly if an ingredient you are counting on is not available.  Get to know your local farmer and what they have to offer.  We will then head back to the kitchen and create a menu based on what we have found at the market. We will be enjoying a balsamic green bean salad, grilled Caesar salad with grilled chicken, corn with cilantro-lime butter, and to finish a delicious blueberry and blackberry rustic tart for dessert.  Please dress for the weather as the show goes on rain or shine.  You do not need to have taken Part I to take this class.
