Blade Master
Preparing great food begins with a sharp knife and solid hand skills. None of us are born with great knife skills, but a good teacher
can get you on the road to professional results! Knives are the tools of the trade, and it’s important to know how to use them
correctly. We begin the class with a brief discussion of knife types, what to look for when purchasing, sharpening stones, how to
sharpen, and honing with the steel. Next, we all work in the kitchen under the watchful eye of Chef Adam to ensure proper hand
movements while learning various important vegetable cuts that every serious food enthusiast should know. Spend a few hours with
Chef Adam and let a professional show you the tricks of the trade. This is a great class to take in conjunction with “Making of the
Home Chef,” coming this Fall.

perhaps a few other local treats), Mariano will use his Italian flare to create a delicious meal with what is available now. Easy to du-
plicate with a trip to the farmer’s market, this class will focus on light summer fare, with vegetables as the center of the plate. Chef
Mariano will show you how to incorporate this healthy way of cooking into your diet without ever missing a tasty bite….

restaurants during his career, such as Zuni Cafe, Square One, China Moon Cafe, and Campton Place Hotel. Currently, he is a Chef

You say “Bastilla” I say “B’Steeya”…
Bastilla, perhaps the best known of Moroccan dishes, has at least six different variations in its spelling alone! (e.g., Bastilla Bes-
tilla B’steeya Bisteeya, Bistayla, Pastilla) Mid-eastern food often includes unusual combinations of sweet and savory flavors with
a complex blending of herbs and spices. Classic Bastilla is made with ras al hanout, eggs and squab, wrapped in phyllo dough and
dusted with cinnamon sugar. However, as well as the classic, today’s class will venture into some of the lesser known dishes: Sea-
food Bisteeya of Essouria and the classic Bisteeya of Marrakeh and sweet Fig and Apple Bisteeya. The countless variations may be
made large for family-style dining, and they may be made into smaller “triangles,” just the right size to serve as an appetizer. In this
hands-on class, each student will be making a variation, also the the opportunity to learn more about working with phyllo and the
traditional Moroccan pastry called “warka.”

Food Handling Certification
By the time you have finished this course, you should have a better understanding of what food borne illnesses are, how they
are caused, and what you can do to help prevent them. To obtain a California Food Handler Card, food handlers will need to
successfully pass a food handler test. Food handlers must maintain a valid food handler card for the duration of his or her
employment. The cards are valid throughout most of the state and are valid for three years from issuance. Each food facility
must maintain records documenting that each employee possesses a valid California Food Handler Card that can be provided
to local enforcement officials upon request. This requirement was passed by the legislature, signed by the governor and is
slated to begin July 1, 2011.

Senior Seminar: Aspects of Spirituality
Theresa Meyer holds a Master’s Degree from a member school of the Graduate Theological Union, Berkeley. She has been teaching
adults for thirty years and believes in the value of lifelong learning and the ongoing process of personal discovery and growth.
Each semester in this seminar, we explore particular and varying aspects of the spiritual heritage of the Western World as it is being
interpreted for and applied to life in contemporary America. Participants have represented a wide variety of perspectives, and all are
welcome. The purpose of the seminar is to consider what established writers on Western spirituality have to say, and then think about
and discuss how these ideas resonate with our own views. In this way, we can learn from the authors, from each other, and from
our own personal introspection and reflection. You are invited to join the seminar, which meets in the welcoming setting of Rianda
House Senior Activity Center. Registration will take place in class.
