Getting Your Green Fix: Growing and Using Sprouts

Size: 4 to 10 people
Time: 2-1/2 hours

Homegrown sprouts are one of the easiest ways to get your green fix without gardening, and you’ll be shocked by how little you need to keep a constant supply of fresh sprouts on hand. I’ll supply a kit to get you started, and we’ll examine the growing stages for a couple of sprout varieties. This technique workshop can accommodate a few more people but still offers hands-on opportunities. You’ll learn to care for your sprouts before you take them home, and we’ll enjoy a batch—along with other Twice as Tasty treats.

Grilled or Roasted: Getting Fired Up about Vegetables

Learn how to grill and roast your vegetables perfectly every time. Sign up at TwiceasTasty.com.
Size: 4 to 10 people
Time: 2-1/2 hours

Meats often feature in grilled and roasted meals, but that backyard barbecue and indoor oven are among the best tools for a vegetable lover. Grilled and roasted vegetables not only upgrade your evening meal but also enhance your canned and frozen goods. In this workshop, you’ll learn how to grill and roast your vegetables perfectly every time. Depending on the season, we’ll either grill or roast vegetables to eat on the spot as part of a group meal.

Planning the Garden—from the Kitchen

Decide what you should plant by considering the fruits and vegetables you buy regularly. Sign up at TwiceasTasty.com.
Size: 4 to 10 people
Time: 2-1/2 hours

The options for your garden can be so overwhelming you end up doing too much—or being afraid to start. One solution is to work backward by asking, “What do I want to eat, and when do I want to eat it?” In this workshop, you’ll decide what you should plant by considering the fruits and vegetables you buy regularly. We’ll discuss growing produce for value-added products and look at ways to store your harvest for year-round enjoyment.

Recipe Revamp: Making Your Family Favorites Better

Learn how to give your favorite family recipes a facelift. Sign up at TwiceasTasty.com.
Size: 4 to 10 people
Time: 2-1/2 hours

We all have recipes passed down in our family through the generations. But if you’ve never made your cranberry sauce or dressing (stuffing) from scratch, built a green bean casserole with fresh beans and home-fried shallots, or roasted your own vegetables, those family favorites could be—well, twice as tasty. In this workshop, we’ll look at your favorite family recipes and give them a facelift. You’ll have a chance to practice new techniques and test an upgraded recipe, giving you the confidence to present version 2.0 at the next family gathering.

Scrumptiously Solo: Cooking for One

Size: 4 to 10 people
Time: 2-1/2 hours

If you live alone or often cook solo, one of the biggest challenges is finding inspiration and energy in the kitchen. But cooking for one doesn’t rule out delicious, healthy, and varied meals. The secrets to being scrumptiously solo start long before you turn on a burner and are more about your approach to feeding yourself than single-serving recipes. In this workshop, you’ll learn how to affordably stock your kitchen for solo meals and focus on basic ingredients that let you make every meal special—even leftovers. You’ll then put what you learn to practice before striking out on your own.

Pantry Planning: Quick Meals without Leaving the House

Size: 8 people
Time: 2 hours

Making a quick, healthy meal isn’t about having a large kitchen or fancy skills: It’s about having a well-stocked pantry. With proper pantry planning, you can always find something appealing to eat—whether you’re cooking for 1 or 12. For this introductory workshop, I invite you to my 500-square-foot cabin so that you can see firsthand how I conjure meals from items kept on hand. I’ll share some of my pantry secrets, and you’ll get to peek in my shelves to see what I store and how I store it. I’ll even prepare a quick dish for the group from my pantry.
This is an introductory workshop; it isn’t as immersive as the full workshops, but it’s available at discounted per-person rate and is a great opportunity to get introduced to the Twice as Tasty experience.

Super Smoothies: Starting Your Day Right

 Smoothies can be quick, easy, healthy, and filling meals in a cup—if you keep the right ingredients on hand. Sign up at TwiceasTasty.com.
Size: 8 to 12 people
Time: 2 hours

Smoothies can be quick, easy, healthy, and filling meals in a cup—if you keep the right ingredients on hand. In this introductory workshop, you’ll learn about some ingredients that work well in smoothies and how to make the most of local fruits and vegetables in and out of season. You’ll also learn to plan ahead so that you can make a delicious smoothie in seconds. I’ll teach you some basic ratios, and we’ll play with a variety of ingredients so that you can create (and taste-test) your own combinations.
This is an introductory workshop; it isn’t as immersive as the full workshops, but it’s available at discounted per-person rate and is a great opportunity to get introduced to the Twice as Tasty experience.
