We've made it through the last week of January and hallelujah, the weekend’s here! There are lots of great reasons to come downtown this weekend and we hope a stop by Cook Culture is part of your plan. Join us this Saturday for our first (free) chocolate sampling of the year, from 11 am to 2 pm. Chocolate extraordinaire David Mincey will be on hand with delicious samples from his carefully selected collection of artisan, small-batch chocolates. Chocolates you simply can't find anywhere else.

Because, as he says “hungry people aren’t learning people.” A fact we all quickly agreed on.

During the small hands-on class, everyone took turns slicing and dicing carrots, cabbage and potatoes with gusto.
Pudding....mmmm....who doesn't love pudding? This coffee with a twist pudding is an easy comfort finale to any dinner. Whipped cream on top? Do it like a pro! http://goo.gl/s8roZd Worry not, fellow addicts: The cinnamon and tahini in this recipe are not here to mess with the already-perfect flavor and aroma of coffee. Instead, they add a super subtle level of spice and nuttiness that only turns the java up to eleven.
