Down in the root cellar; time to get creative with the pre-spring remaining veggies. . .
Join us at our Wallingford Community Kitchen celebrating the coming of spring with an east Indian twist. We are very fortunate to have the talented Ms. Alyssa Griskiewicz sharing some of her favorites recipes with us. Alyssa is a frequent traveler to India and teaches Indian cooking classes around Seattle. In addition to the recipes below, she’ll be demonstrating how to make paneer (Indian cheese) – what a treat. Here’s what’s on the menu:
* Kolkata Cauliflower Soup
* Roasted Alu Gobhi (Spiced Potatoes and Cauliflower)
* Ashram Cabbage (South Indian Cabbage and Coconut)
* Palak Paneer (Spinach and homemade Cheese)
* Chana Masala (Curried chick peas)
* Accompanied by rice
We will cook as a community and then enjoy the bounties of our labor by sitting down to share a meal. Participation requires a $9.99 pre-registration fee to cover the cost of ingredients and the facilities. For you late registrants, – entrance will be $15 at-the-door – this helps us to better plan our menu and control costs. We are also asking those that can, to please donate a bit extra to help out those that could not otherwise afford to attend. We will have a limited number of reduced fee tickets available – please email the coordinator for a password.

We also ask that all participants bring an appetizer, dessert or drink to share with the group (please no bread products as we receive those by donation, unless you would like to bring nan or chapati to enjoy with our meal). Participation in these events requires a certain level of commitment we are cooking as a community and that includes work setting the room, cleaning up and of course the fun stuff of cooking and eating. We ask that all participants do their best to arrive by our start time of 5:30pm. If you are new to attending, you may want to arrive a few minutes early to find the bathrooms, stash you personal items and get comfortable with the set-up. If for whatever reason you cannot arrive on-time, please plan to stay with us to the end of the night to help with clean-up. Ideally we try and wrap up by 9pm the ability to do this truly depends on each and every one of you and you ability to step up and proactively keep us clean throughout the event.
As always, bring along your appetite and some containers for any leftovers. The WCSC is always in need of extra containers, please bring along your gently used and clean plastic yogurt, sour cream, salsa, etc. containers to contribute. A quick reminder that as we move into the “cold & flu season” – if you are ill, we ask that you use your good judgment; always remember to wash your hands carefully when handling food and especially after sneezing or blowing your nose.
Thanks & looking forward to seeing all of you there!
