Chef Boulley whips up cooking classes

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.”

To reserve a spot in the class, call 541-412-6491, or online at http://www.thegourmetguide.com

  • Europe rides rebound as global sell-off abates
    World stocks hit a nine-month low on Friday but oil and southern European bonds were off their week's worst levels, as investors began to dust themselves off after one of the most volatile spells in world markets in years. Bourses in London (.FTSE), Frankfurt (.GDAXI) and Paris (.FCHI) started the day up 1 to 1.5 percent and Athens (.ATG) rose 4.5 percent as Greek governments bonds steadied after their worst run since the height of the euro crisis in mid-2012. The possible return to recession in the euro zone, a floundering economy in Japan, slowdown in China and the Ebola virus outbreak have conspired to rattle investors already fretting about the end of years of U.S. It has been a fourth straight week of stock market falls in the U.S.
  • Goldman curbs bankers' compensation even as revenue surges
    Top Goldman Sachs Group Inc (GS.N) executives are determined to keep compensation costs under control. On Thursday, Goldman reported a 25 percent increase in quarterly revenue, but the money it set aside for compensation and benefits rose only 18 percent from the same period a year earlier. The amount of money it has set aside for compensation is more or less unchanged, as is the average compensation per employee, at around $320,000 for the first nine months of the year. Sources familiar with the matter inside Goldman Sachs described the restraint as a sign of the shifting mentality about bonuses at the bank: it wants to tightly control compensation, even if it has good quarters with big revenue gains.
  • Google's revenue falls short despite curbing price declines
    Google Inc's revenue fell short of Wall Street's expectations as growth in Internet advertising slowed in the most-recent quarter, offsetting a modest improvement in ad pricing, sending its shares down about 3 percent. Shares of Google fell 2.7 percent to $510.11 in extended trading on Thursday. Google posted $16.52 billion in revenue for the three months ended Sept. 30, compared to $13.75 billion in the year ago period. On Thursday, Google announced it had appointed Omid Kordestani its new chief business officer, replacing Nikesh Arora, who had departed a quarter ago to join Japan's Softbank Corp. The chief business officer is considered a key position, overseeing all the company's revenue-generating activities and serving as a liaison to investors and Wall Street.
