Activity Highlights
Meet your host Lynne at her home in Detroit, a unique residence that used to be a bank built in the 1920s with a lovely patio. Sip on a refreshing drink as your host shares stories about living in Detroit before joining her in her kitchen, to learn to cook a Mediterranean inspired seasonal meal. As much as possible, Lynne uses fresh, local produce from her vegetable garden or that she purchases from farmer’s markets. During your hands-on cooking class, learn to knead, roll and grill flatbread, create a delicious salad and learn techniques involved in making sauces that accompany your main dish. A confidence-inspiring cook, Lynne encourages you to cook based on what you taste, see and smell. You will learn to cook three dishes from scratch during your cooking lesson that lasts about 1.5 hours. After cooking, sit down at the table to share the fresh, seasonal meal you helped prepare with Lynne. Your menu might include dishes such as sautéed summer corn with shitake mushrooms and garlic, trout from Lake Huron with a cilantro chimichurri and grilled flatbread with a yoghurt and cucumber sauce. Lynne knows a lot about wine and offers a natural wine pairing with your food.

Sample Menu

• Sautéed summer corn salad with shitake mushrooms and garlic
• Lake Huron trout in a cilantro chimichurri
• Grilled homemade flatbread with a herb tzatziki
• Fresh berry tart
