Kitchen Arts Studio



Food can be a gateway into understanding a culture from the inside and breaking down stereotypes. People eat many of the same ingredients - eggs for instance - but they prep them differently.

Instructor Nadja Peschke will give you just a taste of her travels - India, Nepal, Norway, Germany, France, Italy, Spain - and the recipes she has collected. Her German heritage has "always lended an open-minded sense of food preparation and tastes."

Day 1: Traditional German meal and Austrian crepes

Day 2: Spanish tortillas

Day 3: Summer in Italy - marinara with fresh pasta

Day 4: Soup and a crusty tartine the Parisienne way
