March 2017 Turnip the Heat Cooking Updates

I don’t know about you, but I am ready for a little bit less rain, snow and cold and a little more sunshine and cherry blossoms. I love March in Portland because the days start to get a bit longer and the flowers start to bloom.

Turnip is continuing to focus on customer created events. I am now booking for April, May, and June (but April is almost booked, so act fast!) If you have a class you would like to see, please email us! Does your kiddo want to learn to make a special meal for their birthday? Is your scouting group working on a healthy eating badge? Looking for a unique way to celebrate a new baby, new friend, or even your book group finishing a favorite read? Email us! turniptheheatcooking@gmail.com 

Upcoming Classes

These are limited due to the fact our calendar is filling up with private events. Are you dreaming of a class idea? We just need 6-10 friends and your dream can come true!

If you are interested in summer camp, please sign up soon. Camps are filling up.

March 2nd – Southern Thai Cooking (This is TONIGHT! I have a few spots left, email me if you want to join in! It is always fun!)

April 8th – Preschool Class at Seahorses

June 26th – 5 day Art and Cooking Summer Camp: Session One

August 7th – 4 day Art and Cooking Summer Camp: Session Two

PS. I am sorry if you received a strange newsletter this morning. My newsletter server appears to be on the fritz and I am working it out. 🙂

Happy New Year

I hope everyone is having a wonderful start to their 2017! I am trying out a whole new cuisine this month – vegan! So far it has been delicious and fun, and really, really eye opening! I will hopefully have some experiences and recipes to share.

Turnip’s calendar is filling up with private events! Please email us at turniptheheatcooking@gmail.com if you are interested in scheduling an event. Children and adult birthday parties are always fun, but so are book groups, family get togethers, co-worker groups, or just friends that want to do something different for a night out! Turnip is always open to developing a class that fits your interests and culinary desires.

Preschool classes will be posted soon, as will a few kid, teen, and adult classes. As always, leave a note if you are looking for any particular class.

Happy New Year!
