Cooking classes this Thursday with Aliye from beachgreens.

I have attended the first 2 in the series and the meal alone is worth the price. You can bring your own wine and some friends, its a good time had by all.

The first 2 classes were 'breakfast' and 'lunch'. There are 3 classes left each class is a different menu. This week we are making 'dinner'.

I am a pretty good cook and I am inspired. I'm making her Turkish Green Beans tonight for dinner. The classes are great if you are a novice or just looking for some new ideas. All ingredients are freshly harvested and picked up from the farmers the day before class.

You can come to one class or purchase the remainder of the series. Hope to see you there.

Please contact her directly if you are interested in attending. The classes will be held at Culinary Enterprises at 927 E. 27th St., in Signal Hill. For more details, and to sign up, go to:
