As I plan my winter classes around frigid temperatures and falling snow, it’s consoling to know my kitchen will soon be filled with salivating aromas from  great cooking. February’s class takes us on a global comfort food tour.  From there the schedule transitions to April and the promise of spring along with another treat, Raghavan Iyer and his annual class with us. As always, my classes are participation and take place in my home at 4844 Colfax Avenue South in Minneapolis. See the rental and tour links for more information about Maison Mollans.
