Cooking Class at Pastaworks

I was asked in the comments section the other day about Portland area cooking classes and I half-assedly recounted seeing something about this one — but I couldn’t remember where I had seen it. And I wrote, “you should call Pastaworks and ask about it…”.

Today, I got this in my email, courtesy of the Pastaworks e-newsletter that I get every so often. Thus endeth the mystery of where I had seen the class mentioned. And uh, apparently, don’t call them and ask about it.

Here’s the info from the email:

Cooking with Navarre’s John Taboada from The Silver Spoon cookbook
John’s idea is to explain what does and doesn’t work for the home cook when working with cookbook recipes. Food will be prepared using the Pastaworks’ pantry, and appropriate wines will accompany the recipes and food.

Contact John directly ( to sign up for the class. Please do not call or email Pastaworks regarding this class.

Where: Pastaworks on Hawthorne, 3735 SE Hawthorne
When: Tuesday, December 12th, 7PM

John will divulge how you will be able to receive a discount on your purchase from Powell’s if you wish to purchase The Silver Spoon at the class.
