What we'll have:

  • Tomato Bread
  • Sangria
  • Valencian Mixed Paella with Saffron, Herbed Rice, Chicken and Shellfish

Plant Based Cooking Class with Silvana Rangel Duque

Join Silvana for another delicious & fun plant based cooking class!

  • Tuesday, February 21st
  • 6:30 - 9 pm
  • $50

Pupusas & Curtido:  A Central American favorite.  Learn how to make these tasty tortilla pockets filled with different veggies, beans and spices and served with a tangy vegetable medley called curtido. We will also learn how to make atol de pina, a warm pineapple drink that’s perfect for warming up your day!

Born in Colombia, Silvana grew up among a rich food culture and agricultural tradition where making food from scratch was the norm, cans and frozen food were nowhere to be found. She showed a strong curiosity when visiting farmers markets with her grandmother, asking endless questions about the herbs and vegetables on offer. 

She has traveled extensively, always learning about new cooking techniques, visiting markets for inspiration and learning new recipes from the locals. After a drastic career change, she decided to pursue her true passion: nutritious, plant-based cooking. In 2015, her vision became a reality: Soul Cocina, a plant-based company that focuses on providing nutritious, innovative meals to people from all walks of life. Her delicious, healthy meals can be catered to special events and are found at different farmers markets in the triangle area.

Soup Swap for a Cause January 22 3 - 5 pm

For our inaugural soup swap, we are inspired by my almost-name-twin, Kathy Gunst and her new book Soup Swap. Here's how it works:

  • Make some soup!  about 4 quarts, give or take
  • On the day of the swap, bring your soup and three empty quart-size containers (for the soup that you will take home). Also bring your recipe.  
  • Midway Kitchen will provide bread, salad, wine, bowls, spoons.  After a little mingling, we'll all get to taste the soups. Once we've had time to taste, the swap will begin!  
  • Everyone will draw a number and take turns talking about their soup, how wonderful it is and why they love it.  
  • After that, and in reverse order, we'll take turns picking a soup to take home, each person getting 3 soups at the end.  Trading is encouraged after the initial swap! 
  • A Sunday afternoon of fun for only $10 - and take home enough soup to have a several more meals.  

We'll be collecting donations for food related organizations and events that help the community at each swap.  This swap we'll be collecting money for Ashley Rising, a program that teaches life skills to mothers in recovery, including cooking skills.  Or you can donate online  http://www.ashleyrising.org/donate.html

For inspiration and recipe ideas, go to Flyleaf Books, mention Midway Community Kitchen cookbook club and get a 20% discount on any cookbook - including Soup Swap by Kathy Gunst!
