Barbara Tenney’s ‘Berried Treasure’ Cooking Class at KaTom

Strawberries are in season so when I saw the menu for Barbara Tenney’s cooking class for May 13th, I signed up right away. I alerted friends and marked the calendar for a class that was sure to please everyone. Janice and I can report that it was an absolute treat.

A nice table was waiting for us when we walked into KaTom kitchen.

The kitchen was prepped and ready to go.

The salad was so fresh and full of flavor. The dressing would make anyone crave more.

I was very interested in the strawberry barbecue sauce. It was worth all the work and ingredients to make it.

I learned an important tip: tenderized chicken breasts cook quickly and are more flavorful. What a colorful spring plate!

The strawberry salsa was light and complemented the main course without being very sweet. I would have never thought to combine strawberries with avocado—but it was very nice.

And now, for the piece de resistance!

The strawberry lemonade cake was perfection!

The cake was a perfect blend of flavors, with a delicate lemon undertone throughout the confection. The icing was not too sweet and balanced the two fruit flavors perfectly.

One more view…a slice of heaven!

At the table next to us, we saw local friends enjoying an evening out. You never know who you will see at at KaTom cooking class.

I always enjoy arriving a few minutes early so we have time to shop. There are many grilling utensils and summer items on the showroom floor now. This gadget looks convenient.

Make sure you check the ‘discount’ area because you never know what treasure you may find there. I have purchased several pieces of glassware in my recent trips to KaTom.
