When Anne Boulley accompanied her husband, Allan, in their move to the West Coast in July, it didn’t take her long to find an outlet for sharing her cooking skills.

She has scheduled a series of cooking classes, better “gourmet” cooking classes, in Brookings, beginning today (Oct. 7), with “Baking Artisan Breads: The No-Knead Way.” All classes will be at The Event Center, 800 Chetco Ave.

The Boulleys are well-known on mid-Michigan television, with their popular show, “The Geek and the Gourmet,” a self-produced food events program, featuring interviews with interesting culinary professionals sharing step-by-step seasonal recipes.

Allan, who shared script-writing, directing, and producing, plus camera and cleanup duties with Anne, will not be associated with Anne’s six food events in Brookings. He is  kept busy with his technical position working for the Elk Valley Rancheria, which brought the Boulleys to  the area.

After investigating the coastline, Anne and Allan agreed that they preferred to live in Brookings, which she considers the best place to offer her easy, yet elegant, cooking instructions.

The classes, scheduled from 6 to 8:30 p.m. on Wednesdays, will include Mastering The Art of French Cooking: A Meal In Honor of Julia Child, on Oct. 14, French Inspired Seafood Dishes on Oct. 21, Make Your Own Pastas and Sauces! on Oct. 28, Homemade Marshmallows! on Nov. 7, and, just in time for the holidays, Gourmet Christmas Candy on Nov. 14.

Anne’s invitation to join the first class includes, “Mmmmm, the aroma of fresh baked bread right from the oven. Who doesn’t love good bread?”

The fee for today’s bread making class is $25 for one and, for those who enjoy sharing cooking opportunities, $40 for two.

Anne promises, “You’ll have fun getting your hands messy and receive a basket of goodies to take home, and beverages will be provided.”

  • Economy seen regaining muscle in second quarter
    U.S. economic growth likely regained steam in the second quarter as activity picked up broadly, which would bolster expectations for a stronger performance in the last six months of the year. Gross domestic product likely grew at a 3.0 percent annual rate after shrinking at a 2.9 percent pace in the first quarter, according to a Reuters survey of economists. "I don't think the contraction we saw in the first quarter is reflective of what's truly going on in the economy," said Gus Faucher, senior economist at PNC Financial Services Group in Pittsburgh. Earlier in the second quarter, growth estimates were as high as 4 percent, but they were cut as trade, consumer spending and business investment rebounded from the winter slump by less than expected.
  • Asian shares hit six and a half year high, dollar steady before Fed
    Asian shares touched a six-and-half-year peak on Wednesday and the dollar was steady, with investors waiting for second quarter U.S. growth data as well as a U.S. Federal Reserve meeting that some believe might yield a more hawkish policy outlook. The Fed will not be updating its economic forecasts and Chair Janet Yellen will not hold a news conference following the two-day policy meeting, leaving investors' focus squarely on a statement scheduled to be released at 2 p.m. (18:00 GMT).
  • Fed seen trimming bond buys, could offer vague rate clues
    The U.S. Federal Reserve on Wednesday looks certain to press forward with its plan to wind down its bond-buying stimulus, and could offer some vague clues on how much nearer it might be to finally raising interest rates. With little drama expected from the decision, and no fresh economic projections and no news conference to guide investors, financial markets will be left to scour the Fed's announcement for any hint on whether officials are growing more anxious to start to reverse their monetary accommodation. The Fed has kept overnight interest rates near zero since December 2008 and has more than quadrupled its balance sheet to $4.4 trillion through a series of bond purchase programs. "It is possible that the Fed will begin to alter its view on how much slack remains in the labor market," Paul Dales, of Capital Economics, said in a research note.
