A few words from Melissa:
" I am excited about teaching this class and promise to keep you entertained! I am co-owner of Me &K's: Food filled with love. Many of you have probably seen and sampled our salsas at your local markets. Prior to launching our business, I managed many stores for Wild Oats Markets and Whole Foods. I left my fabulous career at the Laguna Beach Whole Foods where I worked in product development and with the urging of many, set out to follow the dream of starting my own business. In 2010, I visited my mom in East Tennessee, fell in love with this area and decided to stay. I launched Me&K's, focusing on serving all natural, fresh products to my customers. My line of salsas holds the integrity of my love for food and leaves the taste buds of my customers wanting more! I also do private catering and take pride in offering the finest, freshest and most creative dishes for my clients. I look forward to sharing my spice of life, my love of natural and organic foods and my extreme passion for cooking with you. During this class, I will share Recipes of Flavor from my kitchen to yours....."
Spices are used to accentuate and not overpower. They should be used as a tool in cooking. Melissa will discuss the uses of different "hot" ingredients, such as various peppers and other spices used to enhance foods and bring some heat to your own cooking. The class will join in preparing a collection of some of her favorite recipes from Chicken Tortilla Soup to her spicy seafood pasta as well as one of her specialty salsas, created just for this class. If you haven't had a class with Melissa, you are missing a wonderful experience. Her energy, knowledge and humor will keep you entertained!
