Get ready for Picnic Season!

How much have we been loving creating a new class for you, each month at Hipcooks? It’s giving us the excuse to try new recipes, shoot delicious food, and really think about seasonal themes for menus and classes. We hope you’re enjoying it as much as we are!

In June, we’re celebrating the beginning of Picnic Season!  If you’ve got tickets for an outdoor concert, it’s movie night in your local park, or a breezy day at the seaside — you’ll want to dish it out Hipcooks Style with packable food that’s delicious and effortless. Anyone out there with an engagement ring burning a hole in your pocket? Here’s your checklist: Take our class, pack a picnic to wow, and pop the question! We bet it’s a “yes” that gets sealed with a kiss!

Our class is all about menus and ways to strategize, cook/prep beforehand and pack it up! But do not fear, no one will leave hungry, we’ve got snacks and beverages for class. Here’s the in-house menu:

  • Shrimp escabeche in a jam jar
  • Moorish carrot salad
  • Pickled cherry peppers stuffed with goat cheese & mint
  • Fresh tapenade
  • Pan Bagnat
  • Cucumber salad with dill & lemon
  • Yogurt olive oil cake with fresh jam, berries, and cream

To taste: Strawberry basil smash & Vinho Verde

This class also gives us the opportunity to teach the much-requested summertime “pickles and jams.” A Moveable Feast offers an original, unexpected pickle recipe and a fresh jam for our “easiest cake in the world” recipe. See you soon!

Do you love the idea of taking this picnic to a Movie in the Park? Here’s a list of Movies near you for Los Angeles, Portland, Seattle, San Diego.
