Life's a Picnic

Are you experiencing “real” spring weather where you are yet? We’re excited to spend more time outside dining “al fresco” (which is just a fancy Italian way to say eating outside). This month, you can celebrate with an official holiday on April 23, which is National Picnic Day. We have recipes that are perfect for traveling in a basket and we think they taste even better outside. And if April showers keep you stuck indoors, have a picnic on your family-room or kitchen floor. It’s a great way to spend some time together during spring break. And if you’re looking for more spring break fun, check out our newest cooking workshops for school-aged kids.

Picnic Perfect

These recipes, which come from our founder Sally Sampson, can be served cold, travel well, and taste best eaten on a blanket under the sun. Use these for a family picnic for six or a grown-up picnic for two. Looking for more recipes? We’ve got more picnic-perfect recipes for everything from chicken salad to egg salad to cabbage slaw on our website.

Did You Know?

According to the White House Historical Association, the traditional Easter egg rolling that takes place on the White House lawn started in 1878. President and Mrs. Hayes invited children to play at the White House when they were turned away from the Capitol building.

Sally took some chef friends to a corner store and challenged them to cook full meals with what they could find. See what inspired each chef and what they made. Then, get inspired to cook creatively yourself.

April Cooking Workshops   

Our spring classes are in full bloom. There are classes for everyone, from knife skills intensives to Earth Day workshops. During spring break from April 16-18 we are hosting a Cooking Around the World Series for elementary and middle schoolers to get inspired by the vibrant and delicious recipes of different countries' cuisines. If you don’t live nearby, turn your own kitchen into a test kitchen by cooking one of our recipes at home. Want to see what’s coming up this year? We’ve listed our classes through June so you can get a head start on planning your visit to our Test Kitchen. Learn more about our upcoming classes. There is still time to sign up for our April classes, including our April Vacation Series: Cooking Around the World!

Check out our Facebook photo albums to see our students learning knife skills, baking fundamentals, and roasting techniques, and discovering other kitchen know-hows during the month of March.
