The interns took over this weekend with our very own workshop for the Stanford community. And what better food to make than hummus! It’s quick, easy, and wonderfully customizable.

We made the dough with flour, yeast, and water and let it rise for fifteen minutes before cutting it up and rolling the individual balls into round pita shapes. After loading them up onto baking sheets and popping them into the oven, we moved on to the hummus.

Fresh Cooking w/ Chef David Bordow



We worked with chef David Bordow of Chez Panisse to organize this workshop focused on cooking with wholesome, fresh, and local ingredients.

After scouring the local Farmer’s Market all morning, we brought back bundles of fragrant greens and ripe fruits in order to make our very own homemade pasta and salad. Chef Bordow walked us through each step of the process, from dicing the asparagus to rolling the dough!

After a long week, it’s nice to unwind with some truly good food. Thanks again chef Bordow!

No worries, we still made a fantastic, easy-to-make, and most importantly, romantic three course meal of crostini, baked salmon, and chocolate cake!
