Adult Enrichment 2020-2021
Have some fun participating in this virtual Instant Pot® COOK-ALONG class! Two dishes will be made during this class. Choose one for your cook-along, and watch a demonstration of the other or if you have a second Instant Pot® on hand, make both! The recipe options for this class are Spaghetti & Meat Sauce and Macaroni & Cheese! We will also be making a quick loaf of bread (baked in the oven). Both delicious recipes that will become family favorites guaranteed! Make lasting memories in your kitchen if you decide to have your children, your spouse or your partner join you! Children absolutely love spaghetti and macaroni & cheese and will love these dishes even more when made in the Instant Pot®, especially if they help to create them! Have your questions answered by the instructor, interact with other participants as you cook along, and increase your confidence in using your electric pressure cooker. While cooking-along is loads of fun, it is optional and you can also watch the class as a demonstration.
Participants will receive a list of ingredients at least a week in advance of the class to allow time for shopping. If the instructor’s personal recipes are used for this class, they will be shared as a PDF. If recipes used are on-line, links to these recipes will be shared. Note: One registration fee for this on-line Virtual class can include participants from the same household only. In addition, please know that every attempt will be made to keep to these wonderful menu items. Given current circumstances however, the instructor may have to make substitutions. Thank you for your understanding.
Join us online! This class will take place on Zoom. Participants will receive instructions on how to access the class prior to it starting. As an added bonus, the instructor has created a private group on Facebook exclusively for participants of her cooking classes. Everyone will receive an invite to the group although joining is optional. The Facebook group will provide an opportunity for members to ask questions, share their own creations, interact with other participants and support each other on their Instant Pot® journey. Come join the fun!
Tess Georgakopoulos has been cooking for well over 40 years since she was roughly 6 years old. Born into a Greek family, the art of cooking traditional meals using ones senses rather than recipes and measurements was passed on from one generation to the next. Her father was also a trained chef who brought the magic of food to life in another form on the weekends as they cooked elaborate family meals together. Food prepared from the heart, with ones own hands and creativity was, and continues to be an expression of love in her home.
As a skilled home cook and baker, Tess enjoys creating original recipes for her family and friends. Sweet, savory, or doughy, she enjoys experimenting and creating in the kitchen daily. Pressure-cooking with a stove top cooker has been a part of her culinary repertoire for over 25 years. Tess is creating new recipes and reinventing traditional ones using the Instant Pot, which is taking her pressure-cooking to another level!
She has been teaching both in-person and on-line cooking classes through community education for a number of years having worked with numerous public school districts in and around the Twin Cities. Tess has recently started writing her first cookbook, and her food blog is also in the works! Some of her creations can be seen on her Facebook page @dishitupgood https://www.facebook.com/dishitupgood/ or on her Instagram Feed: Dish it up Good.
