This is just a note to tell you how much we loved the cooking class. My friends and I had so much fun. I changed my mind, my favorite food was the challah bread. We still make fun of Kristyn about her golden delicious apples. We look forward to seeing you again for the summer treats backing class. Just wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed the class. Thanks for being a great chef.

Art may be baking some new-found cookie recipes in preparation for the upcoming holidays... and he may just share a sample and recipes! Most cookbooks are priced from $5.00 to $7.00 with the exception of newer books being individually priced.
Art also will be selling back issues of cooking magazines in the near future!

This class is for the person who has never boiled water to the person who has an interest in improving their cooking skills. If I had to sum it up in two words - FUN AND EDUCATIONAL!

Boot Camp 2
If you ever have ever attended a class at The Kitchen Workshop, you know that Art ( I know, I’m speaking in the third person) is never short on words. Case in point: trying to come up with an appropriate subtitle for Boot Camp 2 which begins on Sunday, September 14 from 1:00pm-4:00pm.
So here goes!

Boot Camp 2
The Forgotten Skills of Cooking
The Time-Honored Ways are the Best Keys to Cooking (too long)
Everyday Gourmet
Rediscovering the Lost Art of Cooking
You be the judge for the subtitle but here’s a small “taste” of what I have in mind…
A weekly featured cooking technique such as roasting, braising, baking…
Rediscovering and discovering new herbs and spices and how they can make a great impact on the success in your cooking
Weekly recipes from Art’s favorites cookbooks
Class participant suggested recipes to create in class
Recipe Rx-Recipes that you can’t just seem to get to work for you will be made in class
Cooking without a recipe
Discovering how Art grocery shops and meal plans (tying in with seasonal cooking)
A field trip or two to a local mushroom grower, Penzeys spices and other suggestions the class may have
So in other words a group of 9 foodies, including Art, that are passionate about the entire process of cooking…from discovering a must-try recipe to picking out the perfect vine-ripened tomato, Buffalo Mozzarella and fragrant fresh basil for a tasty Salad Caprese.
You’ll enjoy the company of others who live to eat and are passionate about food.
This course runs 10 consecutive Sundays beginning Sunday, September 14 thru Sunday, November 23 and the class time is 1:00pm-4:00pm.

Fee for course is $590.00 which includes all supplies, just bring your passion of food to class and perhaps a few containers for any left-over food!

Sign up by August 31 and receive 2 FREE Gift Certificates which you may use towards and additional class or you may re gift them (your secret’s safe with us!)
If you have any questions, please feel free to call Art at 610-993-2665 or email him at art@kitchen-workshop.com.
And yes, you may use gift certificates towards the purchase of this exciting course.
There are currently 5 spot open so don’t delay!


Coming this Fall to The Kitchen Workshop…

A night of cooking, murder and fun!

Everyone will be suspect when murder is on the menu! Eight people will dress up, (we hope, but not necessary) and play the roles of the devious suspects while we all cook a meal and get ready for some drop dead fun.
Get ready for…

“A Taste of Wine and Murder”

“Pasta, Passion and Pistols”

“Murder at Mardi Gras”

This is going to be fun!!!


The ladies at The Chester County Night School have gone above and beyond with their Fall 2014 Catalog of Courses.
Classes begin meeting in September through December.
They have wonderful classes on just about everything  and I mean EYERYTHING!!! Here’s just a sampling…
Business and money matters
College readiness
Computers and technology
Crafts and hobbies including photography, woodworking, and jewelry making, pottery, stitching and sewing
Fitness, Health and Beauty
Home and Garden
Languages and writing
Just to name a few!!!
So look for the their catalog in the mail or heck, just visit them on-line at www.chestercountynight school.org and help support this incredible local non-profit local resource to keep these fine classes coming and coming.

When I receive the Chester County Night School catalog in the mail, I truly get the same feeling as anticipating leafing thru the Sears Christmas catalog with ballpoint pen in-hand.

I start thinking about classes that I’d love to take and remember that oh, I have a night job. Did I mention that we have SEVERAL classes being offered in conjunction with the Night School and they were kind enough to list us right in the very front of the catalog! Thanks Jill, Sharyn, Eileen, Sue and you should really never start listing people but they’re a wonderful group of the nicest ladies that you’d ever like to meet. See, I forgot Jolene and she’s the head honcho!

And you can meet them at a Holiday Open House in December at The Kitchen Workshop. More on that to come…
* Remember that “buying local” means more than just your corn and tomatoes!*
