Charles Dabah, owner of The Levantine Kitchen and a personal chef and caterer, joined us last week for an online cooking class featuring fabulous fall recipes! Charles demonstrated spicy white bean stew and butternut squash fries with pomegranate molasses dipping sauce.
Butternut squash is an awesome autumn veggie but is definitely intimidating to work with! Charles helped us get comfortable working with it, as well as showing how to incorporate other veggies like kale and broccoli rabe/rapini into our cooking.
Charles also shared some fantastic tips encouraging us to make homemade vegetable broth, what to do with leftover tomato paste, and lots of other helpful advice!
Here are some of the "finished products" from our cooking workshop:
