This special class features Chef Joe of Coeur d Alene, cooking up delicious seasonal dishes perfect for the harvest season's abundance that is on it's way! Join us for a night sure to please with a focus on using everyday ingredients to create some special in the kitchen.
Here's what Chef Joe had to say about his path to becoming a favorite local chef:
I'm Joe Kubista, owner and chef of Franklin's. Franklin's is a breakfast and lunch diner-style restaurant in downtown Coeur d' Alene, Idaho. I grew up in the industry. Both my grandmothers on my mother and father's side of the family, owned and operated kitchens. When I was a younger child, I would help my mom operate the kitchen of a retirement home. Even helping serve dinner by candlelight after an ice storm! I have a passion for cooking and being creative in the kitchen. I have enjoyed working in restaurants over the last 18 years of many different styles. Some eat to live, I live to eat!

What class participants have to say about The Kitchen:
In The Kitchen, Sada has a seat at the table and a full meal that she made herself in front of her. She loves many things about the Community Classes, but her favorite part is the shared meal at the end of class—when everyone sits down to enjoy what they’ve made. “It’s the community. Getting together with everybody. Meeting new people ... Sitting down with everybody, talking with people I’ve never met until now—it’s wonderful.” To read more about Sada's experience follow this link.
Jamie said that the classes have made healthy food more accessible for her. She’s learning how to cook fresh ingredients rather than turning to processed foods. “I didn’t realize food was so simple. It’s stuff you could go buy in stores and isn’t so hard to find.” To read more about Jamie's story follow this link.
