December 2018 Newsletter

As the year winds down and our holiday activities (and cooking) ramp up, we are pleased to send along our December news and update you on our activities.
With all that our team is doing in the community, it is a good time to remind everyone of our primary mission and focus :
Our vision is to  empower culinary entrepreneurship across Cape Cod and we are doing that via education, connecting with the community, and providing shared-use commercial kitchen facilities for Cape Cod Food Industry entrepreneurs.

Obviously, getting the kitchen in place is the highest priority (and toughest challenge given funding and finding the right type of facility) so that we can serve those who need it from food product makers to chefs, caterers and food trucks.  We continue to look at spaces and negotiate some possibilities.  Until that time, you will find us doing some of the secondary activities including holding classes and workshops. Bringing consumers into the mix with classes helps build awareness for our mission and brings attention to the many local food makers creating interesting products.  Hence you will see us posting some recipes like those from Chef Alan and the articles on some of our local food makers.
It is all part of the culinary community and we hope you enjoy.
Harry Henry,
Board President
Cooking Classes Begin!
On December 5th, we held our first cooking class at KAM Appliances  with Chef Alan hosting a great group in a hands-on experience.  Some great holiday side dishes were created and it was a fun time with the ‘students’ taking their creations home.

Class: Cooking with Flavor without Salt

Saturday, January 19, 10:30 am to 12 noon

Welcome to our next culinary class with our partner, KAM Appliances. The class will be taught by our Executive Director and Chef, Alan Zox.

Gluten-Free Chocolate Cake with Tofu

Years ago I had eaten one like this in Santa Fe New Mexico in an amazing little cafe called the Pink Adobe. The proprietor, Rosalie Murphy, was very innovative and created a cuisine which combined Spanish, Mexican, French and creole cooking. Such a delightful place. And the food was very memorable and delicious as well. The tofu, and gluten free flour and baking soda made it healthier than ever. Enjoy yourselves! It’s worth it!

Enjoy this Recipe!

Neome's Portuguese Stuffies

 My stuffed quahogs can really compliment many types of meals and on any occasion. A perfect side to any seafood dish or soup/chowder, to bbq’s and social gatherings, or even by itself as a snack in which case you may want two! Their aren’t any rules to when you can eat them!
