This Foodlab cooking class will take place 750 Main Street, the event space for Cafemantic whom is running this class in collaboration with Connecticut Food and Farm.

The instructor,  Cathy Amarante, trained at Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts and has worked at outstanding Connecticut eateries including Firebox and Bear’s Smokehouse.  I have known (and personally eaten) some of her food, so I can vouch for how delicious and tasty her dishes are.

This will be Cathy’s second Foodlab cooking class – check out some photos from her first class “Baking for Breakfast”, which are completely drool worthy.


From the website –

Cafémantic and Connecticut Food and Farm Events collaborate to offer hands-on cooking classes taught by foodies, chefs, and culinary professionals. Instructive but informal, they’re designed to make casual cooks and non-cooks alike feel at home in the kitchen. We’ll nibble and sip, get hands on, and expand our cooking repertoire!
