I realize most of my readers are probably not men, but I’ll bet you can figure out a way to sneak this in front of your significant other: I’m teaching a cooking class for folks who’ve never made anything more than toast, a simple Mother’s Day meal that’ll knock your socks off—especially since your non-cooking partner will be the one preparing it. How’s that for a Mother’s Day gift?
The class will take place the Saturday before Mother’s Day, May 5th, at Caribou Baby in Greenpoint. The details:
Forget flowers, jewelry, or massages. This Mother’s Day, give the new mom in your life a delicious, home-cooked dinner—even if you’ve never cooked before. In this special pre-Mother’s Day seminar, I’ll demonstrate an elegant, deceptively easy three-course meal based on a chapter from Parents Need to Eat Too called “Un-Recipes, for Partners Who Can’t Cook.” Think you can’t handle Gazpacho with Honeydew and Peppadew, Linguine with Pecorino, Lemon & Mint, and rich Chocolate Amazon Cake? Think again! With my help, Mother’s Day dinner is a snap.
Admission includes the class (babies are welcome, of course), samples of the food, a step-by-step timeline for Mother’s Day cooking, and a signed copy of Parents Need to Eat Too.
Tickets are only $35, including the signed book, and can be purchased through Caribou Baby.
Now, call him over to read something else on your computer, and accidentally click back to this before you walk away. You could also email it, using the little envelope button on the right beneath the post…
For the record, I realize that not all partners are men. Non-cooking women are more than welcome at this class! Though I imagine the idea of cooking a Mother’s Day dinner for yourself is a bit less appealing than the other way around…
