Our second 6-week after-school cooking session starts in one week! Classes are Tuesdays at 3:30-5pm at Old Salt Marketplace. Each week we will taste the cuisine of a different country while practicing our kitchen skills. Students will learn different cooking techniques, knife use and kitchen safety. Each class ends with us sitting down to enjoy a meal together.
Only THREE spots are left! Sign up today! Class starts Tuesday, January 26th.

Eating the parts of a plant!
I have been stretching my Turnip roots a bit these last few months and have begun teaching in a local preschool. My bi-monthly classes include lots of tasting new foods, vocabulary, and a little bit of off-key singing. I have worked for 14 years with elementary and middle-schoolers, but this is my first foray into preschool! I love it! They are so curious, chatty, and engaging!

Turnip the Heat Cooking is excited to expand to Happy Valley! Turnip classes will now be held in Portland and at the New Seasons Market in Happy Valley.
We are most excited to begin offering after-school cooking classes. These multi-week sessions will help young chefs build cooking skills in a safe, structured environment.
After-School Sessions start October 6th.
Gluten Free Baking
Turnip the Heat Cooking is also booking private cooking classes, birthday parties for kids and adults, bachelorette parties and holiday events (private or for small corporate events)! Email email@example.com to get on the calendar.
Have a wonderful start to the school year. I hope to see you very soon.
PS. I will be making at the Hollywood Farmers Market this Saturday between 9:30-11:30am making pickles! Bring the kiddos and they can create a jar of personalized pickles.
I am a little shocked to look at the calendar and realize that school is starting before we know it. Where has summer gone? But, excitingly, with school comes Turnip the Heat Cooking’s NEW after-school series.
There are three series to chose from:
NE Portland: Tuesdays at Old Salt Marketplace, a 6-week session for students 8-12 year old.
Happy Valley: Thursdays at New Seasons Market, a 3-week session for elementary students and a 3-week session for middle schoolers.
Sign up soon and spread the word!
We are booking our October, November, and December birthday parties now! Our time slots fill up quickly so plan ahead.
Our cooking birthday parties are a great way to kick off a new year! Turnip the Heat offers cooking birthday parties for kiddos ages 6 and older. We like to keep the groups small to make sure everyone can participate and have fun.
We love to plan a menu around the birthdays persons favorite foods (or books!!!).
Email firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more.
(We also do grown up celebrations!)
This will focus on the dumpling! Nearly every culture in the world has a version of the dumpling, delicious filling tucked into dough then steamed, boiled or fried! We will be busy stuffing, folding, cooking and dipping! Come hungry!
Nepalese Momo dumplings
Empanadas with black beans and cheese
Sweet Moochi Dumplings
I have decided to add a Nepalese Momo dumpling to the menu and donate all profits from the class to Mercy Corp to help victims of the Nepalese Earthquake. My heart hurts for Nepal and I want to give back.
