Tuesday, April 7: One-Pot Meals Class

Bayview School of Cooking

By Ron Swarner on March 31, 2015

One of my favorite Far Side cartoons, by Gary Larson, depicts a pair of grizzled cowboys sitting around a campfire at dusk. One is handing the other a cup. The caption reads, "More cappuccino, Raoul?" Yes, times have changed. Campfire and simple cuisine continues to evolve. Bayview School of Cooking Director Leanne offers tried and true recipes that all take under an hour to prepare and with the exception of one, and don't even need a salad to be a complete meal. You'll dig the savory chicken and dumplings, the fresh one-pan tomato linguini with tomatoes and mozzarella balls, the spicy shrimp jambalaya and the hearty ground beef stroganoff. Here's proof that convenient doesn't have to mean that it comes out of a box. 

ONE-POT MEALS CLASS, 6-8:30 p.m., Bayview School of Cooking, 516 Fourth Ave. W., Olympia, $45, RSVP at 360.754.1448
