Hummus Workshop Summary

hummus-japanA little over a week ago I ran a hummus workshop at Serendipity Cafe here in Chigasaki. I had a great time and we ended up making nine different flavors of hummus. I’d have to say that eating nine kinds of hummus is a pretty good dinner to have. We also made flat bread. A gluten-free friend asked if she could bring some gluten free flour along and we successfully made gluten free flat bread for her and another participant who happened to be gluten free as well. We used two food processors and oddly enough the hummus that came out of the processors tasted quite different.

I have been asked to run it again so stay tuned for for an update on when.

I will be posting details for my next class on Monday morning so make sure you come back and check it out.


To market, to market


On May 19th I’ll be participating in the Sunday market at Serendipity Cafe here in Chigasaki. I’ve decided to make hummus and flat bread. I haven’t decided the exact flavors of hummus but I’m thinking Moroccan spice, texmex and something Indian.

Serendipity Cafe is my favorite place to hang out here in Chigasaki. The owners, Mabo and Lisa, have build a great community and host events run by members of that community. I’m running a hummus workshop there next month. If you come to Chigasaki I highly recommend checking out Serendipity Cafe.

If you are in the area, I would love to see you at the market a week Sunday.

Dip Love

My last post was a quickie dip recipe and this entire post will be devoted to dips. I love veggies and dip. I’m pretty sure that I could eat veggies and dip every warm day of the year without tiring. I’ve rounded up four of my dip posts in one place to get you started.
