Cooking Classes!

Sorry, no live classes, but...!

Due to demands on my schedule, I'm not offering live classes at this time. However, I offer you this wonderful recipe for Tomato Bisque Soup that I did teach in a live class. Hope you like it as much as I do. Goes beautifully with a grilled cheese sandwich (made with a hearty bread) as shown in the picture below!
Please let me know on facebook if you like this photo-recipe style. Thanks and enjoy!
