This quiet season on Cape Cod we are introducing a wonderful calendar of cooking classes at our new inn, the Captain Freeman Inn. Former owner and master chef, Carol Edmondson, from Cape Cod Culinary will be leading the class. Our theme is small plates- big flavors which is a perfect combination to enjoy all of the food made earlier with wine tasting and bite size delights. We will explore France, Italy, Spain and other Mediterranean ports as ingredients and imagination allow.
We will be following in the wake of clipper ships captained by Cape Cod’s famous traders, including Captain Freeman himself, who harvested sea salts and sailed the world to trade for exotic spices, food and wares. These cuisines are world renowned for their fresh ingredients, simple home based preparations and complex flavors. The tradition of small plates simply prepared and enjoyed almost any time of day is well established throughout the Mediterranean region. Our class schedule is noted below:
