Classy Cooking Classes in Seattle: Seasonal, Healthful, and Tasty Fare

Who doesn’t want to eat more healthfully?

Okay, not everyone. But if the proliferation of year-round farmer’s markets and organic food here in the Pacific Northwest are indicators, a lot of us are embracing cooking and eating better.

I’ve taken a couple great cooking classes recently in Seattle’s Ballard community that featured seasonal, sophisticated, and surprisingly easy-to-prepare dishes. Creamy parsnip soup, sautéed kale, roasted veggies with spicy yogurt sauce, and more.

Since I’ve been working lots of overtime the last couple weeks and will be for a few weeks more, I’m cheating a bit with today’s post. Read about the classes in my 101 Things to do in Ballard column in the Ballard News Tribune.

When You Go
The classes I took were through Dish It Up on historic Ballard Avenue and Olaiya Land Catering at Delancey restaurant on 70th Avenue Northwest just north of Ballard High School.

Bon Appetit!
