Imagine yourself dining al fresco in a quaint little French café, with captivating conversation and a great cabernet. We'd like to think the menu would be something like this:

Chicken Gruyere - chicken breasts laden with herbs and gruyere, alongside sautéed mushrooms & white wine.

Wild Rice Pilaf - pine nuts and scallions add some wonderful texture, with a little lemon for brightness.

Salade de Pommes de Terre et Haricots Verts - That's salad with potatoes and green beans for those of us who didn't pay attention in French class. A mix of power greens and a dijon vinaigrette round out the flavor in this unusual salad. Dare to be different!

Bougeres - a fun little cheese puff, piped out of a pastry bag and baked. They'll go alongside just about anything! An easy addition to your culinary repertoire.

Corsican Lemon Mousse - Light, creamy, and just perfect to finish a French meal!

In Michigan, March is a little early to go to the shore, so we'll bring the shore to you. This is still comforting food for chilly weather, but we're lightening it up just a bit with some fabulous spring ingredients.

Slow-Roasted Salmon - scented with lemon and accompanied by a trio of vegetables; escarole, asparagus, and those tiny marble potatoes!

Onion Medley Gratin - Leeks, yellow onions, shallots, scallions and barely a suggestion of garlic, wearing a dusting of pungent cheese.

Asparagus & Almond Soup Shooters - the perfect sip!

Crudités - traditional hors d'oeuvre dish in France with raw (cru) vegetable salads. Brigitte will do a colorful trio with Carrot Salad, Red Cabbage and Celery Root salad. She does her salads a little different from the rest of us, so come and learn! In America, we tend to think of crudités as a platter of cut up veggies and a bit of dip. Brigitte will enlighten us!

Crepes with Seafood Béchamel with Madeira - served with braised fennel. Everyone in the class will have the opportunity to try their hand at cooking and flipping a crepe! Brigitte's are just delicious! Learn from the best.

Individual Chocolate Mousse Cakes - creamy and moist, served with Brigitte's choice of topping.

If you’ve not met Marie of Milford Kitchen, you’re in for a treat!  She’s a fabulous cook, a fun person, and she’s agreed to come and work her magic in the kitchen for us.  She’s been cooking and catering in and around Milford for a while now.  She’d love to share some of her favorite recipes with you as well as the techniques and shortcuts you’ll need to make your food the best that it can be.  We think you’ll love the menu----

Zucchini Soup – this flavorful soup is light yet creamy, has enough of a bite to tingle your tongue a bit, and will surprise you with the myriad flavors you’ll find in each delicious spoonful.  It’s one of Marie’s favorites and has become a staple  in her kitchen.

Herbed Focaccia – A savory specialty bread always works well to mop up those precious last drops from the bottom of the bowl when you’re having soup.  Marie will teach us how to make her famous focaccia, sprinkled with rosemary & garlic.

Tagliatelle – a flat noodle, a little thinner and wider than linguini, in a lovely dish, full of texture and flavor---crispy brussels sprouts, creamy of burrata cheese, and the crunch of nuts. A combination you’ll swoon over!

Boston Crème Puffs – if you like Boston crème pie, and Boston crème doughnuts, you’ll love these little treasures.

Need a great menu for special dinner? This one works great for Easter or any time you have to put dinner out there for a table full of people. Nothing here needs to be babysat and there's a nice array of flavors to play off each other.

Herb-Crusted Pork Loin - 3 different herbs with a little salt & olive oil make this oh-so-simple dish a smashing success every single time. Fancy enough for the foodies, simple enough for the kids.

Pineapple Casserole - We'll borrow an easter favorite from the south. Don't knock it 'til you've tried it! A little sweetness to balance the salty pork loin.

Citrus-scented Brussels Hash - Shaved brussels sprouts & a bit of orange zest among other things. Apply a little heat and voila'---a side dish fit for a king.

Asparagus Mimosa - NOT the drink, of course! This dish of garlicky grilled asparagus topped with chopped boiled eggs, is so named because it reminds one of bright yellow mimosa blossoms in the spring.

Zuccoto - A showstopping Tuscan dessert that can be made well ahead of time. A marvelous sponge cake dome, filed with whipped cream, fresh berries and other treasures. Enrobed in a luscious chocolate ganache, each slice drizzled with crème anglaise. Divine!

There are so many delicious flavors in Mediterranean cuisine. Fresh lemons, tomatoes, and cucumbers add their freshness and texture to these wonderful dishes. All those fresh flavors work well as we move into spring and start to eat a bit lighter.

Gyros - Don't you just love gyros? Everybody does--- but most of us don't have one of those neat vertical rotisseries hanging around the kitchen. Don't despair. We can help your make a darn good imitation of that spit-roasted deliciousness---without any special equipment or odd cuts of meat. Load on the onions and juicy tomatoes. We'll show you how to make an outstanding tadziki to give it that creamy finish.

Lemon Rice Soup - Bet you didn't know how easy this is to make. Come to class and find out.

Village Salad - not your average Greek diner version—in fact, we’re not even using any lettuce. This salad is fresh, colorful, and outstanding! Juicy tomatoes, cucumbers, a medley of olives, and a trio of peppers——looking more like a basket of jewels than a salad. A classic Greek dressing and a little feta finish this beauty.

Bougatsa - a little Greek dessert of puff pastry with a delightful lemon crème filling.

Fried Rice - a great way to use up all the tidbits in your refrigerator. Two tablespoons of frozen veggies left over? Just enough pork remaining from yesterday's roast? The last carrot in the bag?

Roasted Tomato & Farro Ensalada - tomatoes, blistered next to the pork, in an arugula salad with fried farro (a grain that's very popular in Italy and gaining prominence here) , spring peas, and a bit of tangy cheese. The perfect slices of pork tenderloin are served arranged atop the salad.

Mushroom Tartlets - Tiny and tinged with thyme.

Chicken Pot Pie - Comfort food at its best, chock full of tender chicken, loads of vegetables and a creamy chicken gravy in a puff pastry crust. We're not making our own puff pastry because we'd like to have other plans during March, but we'll show you how to handle the frozen variety because it should be an easy-to-use staple in your freezer for both savory and sweet dishes.  A good ingredient to have on hand if you often find yourself with drop-in guests.

Mushroom Bacon Galette - what a delicious treat---with a beautiful traditional pie crust. Woodsy, earthy and rustic. This freeform tart gives you a lot of bang for your buck since it delivers big flavor with relatively little work. Bound to become a side dish of choice since it's so easy to change up the filling.

Spring Spinach Salad - Baby Spinach, dressed with a sweet & tangy honey mustard dressing.

Bruleed Banana Pie - oh, my!  Sweet, creamy and tantalizing!  Not like any banana pie you've ever tasted.

Ready for a new adventure? A virtual trip to a land flowing with dates, pistachios, and aromatic spices? These delicious flavors represent a land far away--------where culinary delights abound. Although you’ve probably not experienced these dishes before, there are no particularly unusual ingredients to scare you off---so dive right in just for the joy of it. Who knows? You might just find some new favorites.

Koofteh– delightful Persian meatballs, seasoned with cumin and a host of other herbs & spices. Two fabulous dipping sauces will be served alongside; A homemade tzatziki sauce and a fabulous, traditional garlic sauce. Just DON’T ask for ketchup!

Cranberry & Almond-Topped Salmon – Lots of herbs and garlic combine with the berries and nuts to bring you a grand dish that looks like you really knocked yourself out. We won’t tell anyone how easy it is to prepare.

Persian Rice with Tahdig – a fabulous way to prepare rice. It’s seasoned with a generous amount of fresh herbs, then cooked in a way that leaves a crispy, caramelized layer of rice around the bottom of the pot before it’s inverted onto a serving platter. That glorious layer is called Tahdig, which literally translates to “bottom of the pot”

Herb Salad with Radishes & Cucumber – Crumbled Feta adds a soft texture, while lemon lends a brightness. A liberal dose of toasted walnuts provides a delightful crunch that brings the salad together.

We'll end the evening with a taste of one spectacular tasting date cake. Warm. Rich. Moist.   It may not be Persian, but it will send your taste buds on a magic carpet ride.

Nothing’s more enticing in the winter than the aroma of comfort food that’s been roasting all day, filling your house with those aromas that evoke memories of special evenings with those you care about. We love this menu because it’s really three meals in one. You make two wonderful pot roasts --- serve one then save the other to make two completely different meals!  Here’s what we mean.

S-L-O-W-Cooked Pot Roast – Cooked in your oven, low and slow to produce an amazing, zesty gravy. Serve it with our incredible make-ahead mashed potatoes to really knock it out of the park.

Pot Roast Meat Pies – Turn some of that slow-roasted goodness into a meat pie that would make the Pasty crowd jealous. Add a little of the pan gravy over the top to bring it to the next level. 

Roasted Tri-Color Beet Salad – Perfect to enjoy with your meat pies. Colorful, tart, sweet, and loaded with flavor.  So pretty on your table.

Beefy Mushroom-Vegetable Soup – More of that crazy-good gravy and a few additions makes the most out of the pot roast leftovers by turning it into a hearty soup with a little bit of pasta for good measure.  A lovely baguette will be all you’ll need to turn this into a delightful third meal!

German Chocolate Cupcakes – A nutty, chocolatey, and coconutty monument to why we like to bake.  Absolutely delicious.

Well---we weren't sure if we were going to be able to fit it in, but we had such an overwhelming response to last year's cookie event, that we're offering it once again.  It's next Wednesday, so registration opens now and stays open until this Saturday evening.  Last year the event filled in THREE days!

We've been lucky enough to book a special guest for our event---local baker extraordinaire, Abby Zolinski.  She makes the most beautiful and delicious French Macarons that you've ever seen!  She'll be at our event this year to chat with you and offer some of her amazing macarons for sale.

Maybe you’d like to dip your toe into the waters of ethnic foods, but you either know nothing about it or don’t want to try anything too unusual. This class is for you. You won’t have to buy a lot of special ingredients should you choose to make these yourself. They definitely pass muster for family friendly. Take a look.

Bulgogi - Very, very tender marinated beef with scallions and carrots with a good shake of sesame seeds. A simple Korean staple served over rice.

Drunken Noodles - A Thai dish, wherein there is nothing drunken about the noodles. We’ll talk about the origin of the name during class. This dish includes chicken, soy sauce, Thai basil and a few other goodies. A common dish that’s uncommonly good.

Veggie & Quinoa Salad '- Oh, so colorful! Drizzled with a Thai peanut dressing.

Green Tea Panna Cotta - with tropical mango compote. A light and refreshing Asian-inspired dessert.

Sign up! You know you want to!

Could this really be the fifth time we’ve offered this class? It is, and you’re all still clamoring for another. We understand. Every bite is a little bit of Polish heaven. In the winter, we’ll probably change our Polish class up a bit, so if this is the one you want, register NOW!

Dill Pickle Soup -This is one classic Polish soup that we always hear about from our customers. Now we get to taste it! Veggies, barley, mushrooms, and--of course--Polish dill pickles---all help give this soup its distinctive flavor.

Pierogi - Kim's family recipes---from the sour cream dough to the two different delicious fillings; sauerkraut with bacon & mushrooms, and potato with onion & cream cheese. They'll be boiled then sauteed in a little butter.

Served with:

Golabki - Ground beef and rice, perfectly seasoned and rolled into tender cabbage, simmered ever-so-slowly in a tomato-y sauce. Tender, delicious, and it smells like haven! Kim will make these ahead of time but she'll provide the recipe.

Polish Cheesecake - creamy cheesecake filling on a yeast-based crust with a special crumb topping make this deliciously different. This dessert was a huge hit at the first four classes. We’re sure this time will be no different.

The aromas coming from this class are sure to make the rest of Main Street jealous. These autumn all-stars are just a cut above---elegant comfort food at its best. Chef Steven will lead the way.

Cider-Brined Pork Loin - Served with a spiced, maple-bacon chutney. Certainly the best of all those Michigan fall flavors. A recipe that will make you want to throw a dinner party, especially with….

Hasselback Winter Squash - Bay leaves lend their scent to this lovely butternut squash, glazed with a bit of seasoned maple syrup and butter. Its stunning presentation will definitely give the impression that you went all out.

Medley of Garlicky Greens - Slow-cooked, as greens go. Chard, Kale, and collard greens, with olive oil, garlic, and lemon juice. Served warm and wonderful.

Arugula & Pomegranate salad - with panko-crisped rounds of warm goat cheese to add a pungent richness to the dish. All the flavors your palate could hope for-- peppery arugula, sweet pomegranate, tangy citrus, and creamy chevre.

Apple-Glazed Cheesecake - Citrus-kissed and topped with an apple-filled glaze. The cheesecake has an unusual addition, a bit of cheddar cheese. Highbrow and heavenly.

Prosecco, Peaches, & Pie

Prosecco, Peaches, & Pie | Thursday, October 11th
from 15.00

On October, we’re going to have one lovely evening at Acorn Farm. Lisa Ludwinski is a Milford girl who’s made quite a name for herself with her cafe and bakeshop in downtown Detroit, known as Sister Pie. We’ve visited and all we can tell you is that her pies are out of this world. We’re lucky enough to be able to have her in for a cookbook signing and all-around fun evening out at Acorn Farm. We want to celebrate with Lisa as her first cookbook makes it debut, Sister Pie – Recipes & Stories of a Big-Hearted Bakery in Detroit

Of course, we’ll taste some of her outstanding pies, have a pretty Prosecco cocktail, a drawing or two, and interact with Lisa while she signs your cookbooks. You can buy a ticket for the event for $15, or you can buy a ticket for the event plus a cookbook and you’ll save $5 off the list price. We encourage you to purchase the latter as it’s definitely a one-of-a-kind book. Lisa likes to color outside the lines when it comes to her pies, with interesting flavors like Blueberry Plum Balsamic or Sweet Corn Nectarine Streusel! We’ve tried her Banana Pete pie and it was one of the best pies we’ve tasted (and you know we’ve tried a few in our day!) The night of the event, Lisa will bring slices and whole pies for sale. Buy a slice or two for someone you love.

Choose your time slot and whether you would like a discounted copy of the cookbook as well. Additional copies are available at the regular price.

Three Lebanese Sisters | Tuesday, October 9th
50.00

Although Diane Fikany has been a staple at our cooking classes for years, you may not know that she is Lebanese and is quite accomplished in the kitchen. She’s done a class for us before to rave reviews. This time she’s operating exactly where she shines and bringing along her sisters. They’re showing recipes that have been passed down from great-grandma, to grandma, to them. The kind of stuff that isn’t quite the same out of a cookbook or a classroom. Just like Grandma’s Polish Kitchen, these are family recipes, tried and true for generations. What an opportunity!

Hummus and Pitas - the garlic & lemony chickpea dip we all love. Diane will show us the path to perfect hummus.

Miniature Stuffed Grape Leaves- tiny, perfect little bites served with a cucumber, tomato & yogurt salad.

Fattoush - a delicious, fresh, crisp salad loaded with Mediterranean flavors, plenty of parsley, lemon, and pita bread—- after all —- Fattoush means bread salad.

Chicken, Chick Peas and Rice - A Lebanese comfort classic. It’s a wonderful one-pot meal, served inverted onto a platter.

After this delicious class, we’ll sample a variety of delicious Lebanese sweets.

What? It’s a lasagna class, of course! We’ll make three, completely different lasagnas, all amazingly delicious. It’s going to be difficult to pick a favorite. In keeping with our theme, we’re going to serve Honeymoon Salad---lettuce alone-without any dressing, and a roll with your honey. Just kidding, of course. Lest we digress, let’s get to the real menu.

Creamy Vegetable Lasagna - No tomatoes here! This is a white lasagna, chock full of broccoli, carrots, onions, and more. Super easy, exquisitely tasty, and different from traditional lasagna.

You -Won’t-Miss-the-Noodles Lasagna - The pasta sheets are replaced with long, thin slices of eggplant, zucchini,and yellow squash. It’s all layered with tomato sauce, three cheeses, and a bit of basil.

Pink Lasagna - This delicious lasagna is sooo good. Traditional with a little twist. A little addition that makes the sauce creamy and a little pink Italian sausage puts this dish right over the edge. You’ll have to take the class to get the scoop on this amazing recipe.

Ensalata Antipasto - classic Italian flavors with pepperoncini, olives, and some fresh mozzarella. Divine.

Caramelized Sabayon with Roasted Fruits of Fall - Stonefruit, grapes, and more, roasted to the peak of sweetness, blanketed in sabayon then quickly torched for a little depth and flare.
