Hungry for the holidays

Our earlier post has gotten us in the holiday spirit a bit prematurely (it's not even Thanksgiving!).

But, it can't hurt to plan ahead. That's especially the case with the new offering of classes from the Brooklyn Kitchen, coming to their brand new space at 100 Frost St., and sure to fill up fast.

Some holiday-themed highlights that caught our eye that are perfect for that office Secret Santa or for yourself, include:

December 1, 6:30 p.m.

Liz Gutman and Jen King of Liddabit Sweets prepare delicious holiday confections that you can give away to your friends... if you can keep your hands off of them. Come and discover the magic of candy you make yourself with these talented folk. Each student will go home with the recipes demonstrated and a sample of the sweets prepared.
December 6, 2:00 p.m.

In the spirit of homemade gift-giving, Kelly Geary of Sweet Deliverance will demonstrate how to create seasonal preserves that make great holiday gifts, with recipes that will come in handy all year long. Kelly will also demonstrate canning techniques that will allow you to develop your own recipes safely and deliciously. Each student will take home a jar of preserves.

Holiday Cookie Workshop
December 12 and December 19, 11 a.m.

Nearly all day you can be baking and decorating cookies in their main kitchen, Lab #1. $10 gets you a baker's dozen, and advice from their very own Lila Dobbs, who will be standing by to answer all your cookie-related queries, and offer holiday baking tips.

December 15, 6:30 p.m.

Katie Robinson makes great cakes - she has worked at some of the top bakeries in New York, and has been featured on two Food Network Cake Challenges. But this month we're getting into the holiday spirit and she's teaching you how to make gingerbread houses. Everyone will get to build a house, and decorate it under Katie's expert tutelage. This class is decidedly hands-on, and students can bring their houses home.
December 16, 2:00 p.m.

Giving a homemade gift can be infinitely more rewarding than a purchased one, that's why Chef Brendan McDermott is teaching you how to make three different kinds of biscotti this season. Each student will get to taste the finished result, and take home the recipes. Imagine how cute your biscotti will look when it's wrapped up and ready to be gifted away...or eaten by you.
