Enjoy a fun night with your best friend, your mom, or all on your own. We'll be building a beautiful floral arrangement together, step by step. It would make a great hostess gift on Thanksgiving or the perfect centerpiece for your dessert table. The flower arranging is only part of the class. Kathy will give you tips, techniques, and ideas to put together your own unique holiday table. We've put the class right before Thanksgiving so you can use all your ideas and your arrangement on your holiday table. This is our first floral class, so it's bound to fill up fast. During the holidays, the store is full to the brim, so this class will take place in our lower level. Participants will need to be able to navigate stairs. Enjoy a great evening sipping mulled cider, crafting a floral arrangement, and planning a festive table. Don't wait too long to register!

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.

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.

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.

They’re our closest neighbors, but most of us really don’t know much about their cuisine. We’re not talking about Beaver Tails or poutine, but authentic, Canadian classics. Theresa Sheppard, one of our favorite cooks, has a rich, French Canadian heritage and has been making some of these family recipes for years. At a recent cooking class she attended in Chicago, she was asked to share her authentic Tortiere recipe with the teaching Chef. She’d like to share it with you, too. Comfort food from our neighbors to the north! Every class she’s taught has been a hit. Don’t miss out.

Creton - a lovely, uniquely-seasoned pork pate served on toast, bread or crackers, a French Canadian classic!

Tortiere - A meat pie originating in Quebec. It’s completely different from any meat pie you’ve had in the states. Theresa’s recipe is the real deal. We have it on good authority that this is the best meat pie in the world.

Yellow Split Pea Soup- Hearty, healthy, and full of flavor.

Melange of beets - served in a warm apple vinaigrette. Sweet, tangy, gorgeous!

Maple Pie - Like a rich, delicious, maple-y butter tart.

We get pretty excited about soup season every year. There’s nothing quite as comforting as a steaming pot full of that hearty, amazing goodness served in a bowl. We’ve got three soups that we’re sure you’ll want to add to the soup section of your recipe box. Make them often. Your family will love you even more than they already do!

Chicken, Cheddar, and Veggie Chowder - Great as the star of your supper, but perfect for apres ski or a hearty soup course as part of a full meal. A little bit of everything makes this one amazing chowder.

Zuppa Toscana - This is one of the tastiest soups we’ve come across. A little Italian sausage, a healthy dose of fresh spinach, chicken broth, and just a wee bit of half & half to make it creamy without making it heavy. No tomatoes were harmed in the making of this soup.

Russian Beef and Cabbage Stew - The simplest of stews but darn delicious. Stew beef, a touch of sweet, some carrots & onions, and plenty of cabbage! Even better on Day 2! Peasant food that tastes like a million bucks.

All served with warm artisan bread & butter

Fall Berry Crumble - throw it together with whatever fall fruit makes you happy! An oat-ey, sweet topping makes it irresistible.

You’ll get to roll out some dough, arrange your own antipasto and put together your dessert. We can’t wait for you to join us!

Margherita Pizza - All the colors of the Italian flag: green basil, farm-ripened red tomatoes, and slices of fresh mozzarella cheese. Absolutely unbeatable with local tomatoes.

Peach Melba Wine Slushies - after this winter, it might be too soon to talk about slush, but this is a slush we'll all love. A rather sophisticated and downright delicious version of the lowly slushy, with fresh raspberries and peaches layered in a clear glass.

Farmer's Market Vegetable Tart - because fresh tomatoes are just as heavenly as peaches. Fresh tomatoes, eggplant, and a bit of chevre, baked in a flaky tart shell. An Acorn Farm favorite for years and the perfect, savory balance for this peachy menu. Hearty enough for a vegetarian main dish.

Steak with Stonefruit Pico de Gallo - tender, marinated steak, seared and served accompanied by a fresh pico with peaches and a hint of heat.

Peach-Glazed Pork Chops- a fabulous fresh peach glaze plays perfectly with the sage-y stuffing. A wonderful dish that can stand alone for a casual dinner or even when someone special is coming to visit.

Lobster Rolls - Luscious chunks of Maine Lobster, lightly seasoned on a buttery New England-style roll. An outstanding starter!

Grilled Mushrooms in Herbed Bearnaise - an exquisite treat for the tongue! The rich and creamy herbed sauce with shallots and peppercorns blanketing the lightly charred mushrooms is simply regal.

Butter-basted Steak with Aioli - Medium-Rare steak, basted with browned butter until the outside has developed a gorgeous crust. Served with aioli on dressed arugula, beets, and charred scallions. Simple, yet sophisticated and oh, so good!

Blistered Corn & Chili Dip - summer sweet corn with a light char, mild poblanos, and plenty of Mexican style flavors BBQ'd in a grill-proof dish until bubbly. Served with freshly fried and salted tortilla chips. We'll show you how!

Anticuchos with Garlicky Tomatillo Sauce - beef marinated with toasted spices, with a nice sear, served with a charred tomatillo & chili salsa. Maravillosa!

Poblano Tamales - Fresh tamales! A masa dough with a cheese, poblano pepper & fresh corn filling, wrapped in corn husks and grilled. Love these!

Grilled Taco Bar - We liked both of these fillings so much that we decided to feature them both. 

Short-Rib Tacos - short ribs, rubbed with a classic blend of Mexican spices and poblanos, and grilled on a searing hot salt block.

Sweet Chipotle-Marinated Pollo - chicken soaks in a sweet and spicy marinade before we amp up the flavor on the grill. 

When they're both done, you'll customize your own taco at a table replete with fabulous fixings; charred corn salsa, pico de gallo, crema, cheese, peppers, avocado and anything else delicious that your taco will need.

Cuban Mojito Cheesecake Parfaits - the celebrated lime & mint libation in parfait form. Lovely!

We all love them. Those great dishes you can only get at a street-side stand or a food truck. Living in a small town, we're rarely around these portable traveling vehicles of culinary delight, but we can make a few classic street food dishes on our own. They'll taste like we fussed for hours, but will be simple to reproduce at home. Appetizers and sides hail from Mexico, Germany, and even Vietnam, but the real star here is from the Middle East. After dinner, we travel back to Europe for dessert.

Bahn Mi Sandwich - the world-famous sandwich of Vietnam. Spiced Beef, pickled veggies, and more combine to make a unique flavor profile that you'll just HAVE to have again. 

Currywurst - don't knock it till you've tried it. One awesome grilled bratwurst covered in a curried ketchup. Germany's star player on the street food stage.

NYC Halal Cart-Style Chicken - In Manhattan there's one amazing smell that dominates the breezes from lunch through the evening. It's this dish at the many Halal carts. We'll recreate it for you. You can thank us later. Marinated chicken, yellow rice, plenty of spice (but no heat) and a to-die-for sweet-sour-tangy sauce that you'll crave until you get your next fix. 

Esquites - street corn in a cone, just like it's served in Mexico. Char-grilled corn, cotija cheese and a lime-y dressing. Fabuloso! 

Trdelnik - oh my. We probably shouldn't make these delicious Slovakian treats because you'll be hooked. Pastry wrapped around a stick of sorts, then baked and rolled in a nutty, sugary mix. Sometimes filled with whipped cream, ice cream, or other delights. Even plain, you'll find them irresistible.

This will be a backyard barbecue, Michigan-style. We've taken some of the reigning grill favorites, updated them, and added some Michigan accents. We think you'll be delighting some out-of-towners with this menu in your own back yard soon.

Iced Tea Bar - Plenty of freshly brewed and chilled iced tea, with a lovely assortment of homemade flavored simple syrups (from Michigan fruit) to customize your iced tea as well as fruit and herbs to garnish. 

Potato Salad - deliciously different with a little grilled corn, bacon and red onion tossed with a tangy dressing. It's love at first bite with this colorful salad.

Michigan Whitefish - served on a bed of spinach & a melange of mushrooms, lavishly drizzled with a piquant mousse-like Dijon crème. 

Burgers au Poivre - peppery sirloin burgers with all the classic flavors of Steak au poivre---worcestershire, butter, brandy, and black pepper. Decadent deliciousness. Served with a slice of grilled Vidalia onion, a dab of blue cheese and Michigan peach jam on the side. 

Spiraled Koegel Hot Dog - our favorite Michigan-made hot dogs, served with a Dijon and Michigan cherry relish. The Chicago dog will be jealous.

Grilled Cherry Milkshake - What could be more Michigan than cherries? Deepen the flavor by grilling the cherries and blending them with some Guernsey vanilla ice cream.

We're putting a serious mix of flavors on the Acorn Farm grill this summer. This menu's got a little something for everyone, with a crazy-good flight of flavors from around the world.  Our first virtual stops will be in Malaysia and Vietnam, with a couple of tempting appetizers, then on to Thailand for our delicious shrimp entree and salad.  We'll end up in India with a refreshing dessert that is representative of the flavors of many cultures in the region, each as delicious as the next.

Beef Satay Skewers- savory peanut-butter, chili, and ginger satay sauce blankets the beef, served with a crunchy, nutty, crumble with a hint of spice & a chutney garnish. You can never get enough of these. So good!

Vietnamese Wings - Marinated for extra depth of flavor, then grilled to perfection and served with a chili/cilantro/fruit relish. Move over, Buffalo.

Grilled Shrimp with Lime, Brown Butter and Mild Chilis - a festival of flavor in your mouth! Served with a scoop of herbed basmati pilaf and charred snap peas 

Chilled Summer Salad - the cool refreshing cucumber, lightly dressed and joined by some sweet peppers, onion, and some simple seasoning with complex flavors.

Cardamon Pistachio Pops- think creamy iced chai on a stick. Cold, refreshing, and absolutely amazing.

Nothing says summer quite like vine-ripened tomatoes. It's only in summer that we get to enjoy that inimitable flavor only nature can produce. Although they're not the main course in this menu, they play a major supporting role in the Mediterranean culinary tradition, full of fresh vegetables and tangy marinades. Imagine yourself in the marketplace, tasting the fresh pomegranate juice and experiencing the heady aroma of piles of spices like sumac and z'atar. You might want to board the next plane.

Stuffed Mushrooms a la Greque - portabellos, stuffed with a cheese-laden mélange of vegetables, then grilled to gooey goodness.

Salmon Falafel Burgers with Pomegranate BBQ sauce - tender salmon burgers, bound with tahini-laced hummus and seasoned with the flavors of the Mediterranean, served with a sweet & pungent barbecue sauce in a grilled flatbread, with fresh baby spinach and garlicky yogurt sauce. Simple to make, complex on the tongue. Fabulous.

Tomato/cucumber salad - seasoned with all the flavors of Greece, crisp vegetables, pungent cheese & lemon

Grilled Pork Gyros, - tasty, marinated grilled pork, served with fresh onions, tomatoes, and a classic,creamy, homemade tzatziki in a grilled pita.

Raspberry Lemon Cake - although it's not a traditional dessert from the region, lemons are a big part of the cuisine and this chilled, fruity cake will be a delightful, refreshing, and sweet finish to a fantastic meal. It's a great cake to make for company as it can be made days ahead of time!

After the gray winter, we’re all ready for color. The little pokes of green coming up in our gardens, the trees starting to leaf out. At the dinner table, we’re looking for those fresh, tender green peas, spring onions, and delicate herbs, but still needing some heartiness until warm weather arrives. This menu is a delightful transition from the harshness of winter to the lovely warmth of spring.

Garlic-Rubbed Pork Shoulder - This slow-roasted wonder will have the store smelling like heaven on the afternoon of class. A garlicky blend of herbs and olive oil produce a beautiful crust and absolutely amazing pan juices.

Spring Vegetables – baby carrots, English peas, edamame, and all their friends in a buttery, herb-scented sauce.

Cheddared Chard Tart – Swiss chard with fresh dill and lemon are baked in a tasty butter crust with two cheeses.

Three Pea Salad – snap peas, snow peas, and English peas, with an herbed Dijon dressing, served on a leaf of butter lettuce with a salty sprinkle of nuts & seeds.

Berry-Topped Mascarpone Flan Cake – This perfect dessert is part cake, part tart and part cheesecake in nature. It’s got a buttery, nutty crust, a flan filling, and Chambord-soaked fresh raspberries to grace its top.  Simply divine.
