What To Bring to Class:
Welcome to our first culinary class with our partner, KAM Appliances. The class will be taught by our Executive Director and Chef, Alan Zox.
The theme guiding this class is to consider that eating well need not mean giving up everything either. I find myself eating less meat but not giving up burgers and BBQ every weekend. I just look for alternatives more often like fish sandwiches, vegetarian burgers or BBQ lamb chops. We do have choices. For example, I find myself eating differently and have fallen in love with Cape Cod Rubens which exclude pastrami but embrace cod or other seafood with sauerkraut, swiss cheese, and Russian dressing. Or a chocolate sundae is still delicious even when only eaten infrequently.
Our recipes in this class will no doubt challenge many of us. Cranberry Salsa has excessive sugar but tastes even better when eaten once a year over the holidays or when using honey, Stevia, or Sugar substitutes. Similarly, Tomato Pudding is not as healthy as it could be but is dramatically healthier with Stevia or Honey.
We will talk about this and other ways to eat healthier yet still delicious food preparations in our culinary class on December 5th ---- Looking forward to seeing you

By Chef Alan Zox
It’s holiday time again and moderation seems to be the word of the day. Thanksgiving and Christmas may call for some sweets but this doesn’t necessarily mean we throw our diets to the wind. In fact I believe that eating smart by definition means eating more selectively but not giving up all the pleasures of a holiday meal. Still It’s no doubt a challenge.
In fact today’s recipes are not for everyone. But eating well need not mean giving up everything either. I find myself eating less meat but not giving up burgers and BBQ every weekend. I just look for alternatives more often like vegetarian burgers or BBQ lamb chops.
We do have choices. For example I find myself eating differently. I have fallen in love with Cape Cod Rubens which exclude pastrami but embrace cod or other seafood with sauerkraut, swiss cheese, and Russian dressing.
Today’s recipes no doubt challenge many of us. Cranberry Salsa has excessive sugar but tastes even better when only eaten once a year for Thanksgiving. And Tomato Pudding is flat out not as healthy as it could be but is dramatically healthier with Stevia or Honey. Some of you may argue this is untenable if not too much of a sacrifice. But less is not necessarily worse. Try it. You might be surprised.

Entertaining has always been a rewarding experience for me and my family and is a special part of my Cape Cod lifestyle. I have enjoyed living on Cape Cod for over 25 years with friends and family after moving here from Puerto Rico.
As an American of Puerto Rican descent, I have a deep love for my Hispanic heritage. It has given me a wealth of experience to draw from in marketing my homemade salsa dip which bursts with flavor like no other salsa dip in the American marketplace. With an exotic blend of Caribbean spices and herbs, my salsa dip will delight your palette as it has done for my family and friends for so many years. Cape Cod salsa dip is all-natural with no artificial ingredients. It merges a tasty blend of tomatoes, garlic, cilantro and other flavorful herbs and spices. And of course, brings the consumer lots of love.
The blend of aromas in Cape Cod Salsa Dip is a timeless reminder of my memories as a young girl. I remember the aromas of my mother’s herb garden in my hometown in San Lorenzo, Puerto Rico after a rainfall. Eating a spoonful of our dip on a cracker or vegetable slice was so delicious and aromatic and still is.. My mother Carmen had a very special love and warmth for cooking and entertaining and this love has now become a very special part of my own cooking. Carmen had a special gift of generating the most delicious flavors out of very small quantities of herbs and spices. This unique Puerto Rican cooking style is called “comida criolla”.
“Comida Criolla” is a combination of flavors and ingredients passed on from generation to generation amongst the different ethnic groups of Puerto Rico -groups that include Spanish, African, Indian and North American traditions. The well-known “sofrito” is drawn from these culinary traditions and has become a central part of Puerto Rican cuisine and culture. As my mother used to say, Sofrito is the base of all Puerto Rican cooking and especially so in our favorite Salsa Dip recipes experienced by locales in the towns of Forestdale and Sandwich, Mass. Enjoy the dish with me as it has became a special tribute to my mother’s love for Caribbean cuisine and to the enchanting beauty of Cape Cod.
