My upcoming cooking class at Kitchen On Fire is on traditional Spanish recipes for vegetables.  In Spain, seasonal  traditions and regional recipes abound featuring vegetables of all types. Often overshadowed by their more well known animal based table mates, demoted to the rank of side dish, Spanish vegetable recipes hide in plain sight.
On Tuesday June 5th we are bringing the flavors of Spain to Berkeley. This class features several recipes where a variety of vegetables, fruits, nuts, and herbs create flavor combinations that are satisfying as well as healthy and nourishing.


  • Romesco Sauce with Grilled Vegetables
  • Mushrooms with Garlic & Herbs
  • Almond Stuffed Eggplant
  • Spinach with Pine Nuts and Golden Raisins
  • Watermelon Gazpacho
