There's a whole lot of good stuff going on at Ollie Vaughn's, the Phoenix bakery and sandwich shop Lindsey Magee opened late last year. It's a charming place for breakfast on the go, coffee, or a light lunch and now, Magee is adding a series of cooking classes to the mix.
Starting on Monday, June 16 Ollie Vaughn's will be hosting weekly hands-on cooking classes on a range of different topics.
Each class costs $45 and will be hands-on. Space is limited and sign up is available in the store, located at 1526 E. McDowell Road.
Here's the June class schedule:
QUICHE CLASS Monday, June 16, 6 to 8 p.m.
The quiche is a great family dish and always a hit at parties. In this class we will learn how to make full size and personal size quiche. The perfect filling for a quiche begins with making your own crème fraiche and roasted vegetables. Then, master the art of making tart dough, rolling a perfect round and par baking the shell. Don't worry about coming hungry to the class; each student will have a personal quiche to enjoy!
VINAIGRETTE CLASS Monday, June 23 6 to 8 p.m.
Making your own vinaigrette is a great way to save money, eat healthier and add a personal touch to your dishes. In this class you will learn the science of oils and acids and the difference between stable and unstable emulsions. Once you learn the basic rules its time to play with herbs, spices, sugars and more to make your very own bottle of vinaigrette to take home. We will also prepare three amazing summer side salads in order to taste test our personal creations.
PEPPERS CLASS Monday, June 30, 6 to 8 p.m.
Its pepper season and time to start taking advantage of the one fruit Arizona has plenty to offer. In this class we will learn to identify peppers from the mild to the wild and then we cook! We will prepare Ollie Vaughn's infamous Jalapeno Marmalade and Salsa Verde as well as stuffed poblanos, roasted chiles and to top it all off, a spicy chocolate ganache that will transform any dessert in the desert!
