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.”

  • Wall Street Week Ahead: Spring fever brings hope for U.S. earnings
    Several behemoths, including Apple, the largest U.S. company by market value, as well as Microsoft, McDonald's (MCD.N) and AT&T (NYS:T), are due to report earnings. They'll be accompanied by highfliers like Netflix and Facebook, giving the first real cross-section of the state of corporate America as temperatures rise across the country and investors hope to put the cold weather behind them. Strategists will also be looking for clues on how badly China's slowdown hits U.S. corporate results. The first batch of earnings came out as equities were working their way through a selloff led by trading-crowd favorites like Netflix and the biotech stocks.
  • Premium car brands eye China's secondhand market
    Strong demand for new automobiles in China has laid the foundations for the next leg of business for carmakers BMW (BMW.DE), Audi and Mercedes-Benz: the second-hand premium car market. China's auto market is the world's biggest and is set to grow between 8 percent and 10 percent this year, fuelled by increasingly affluent buyers, who use them for the daily commute, with some opting for luxury brands as a status symbol. We have 290 dealers who offer certified pre-owned Audis," Rupert Stadler, chief executive of Volkswagen's (VOW3.DE) premium brand, Audi, said during the Auto China show in Beijing. "In China, we have some dealers that sell between 1,500 and 3,000 cars."
  • South Africa's 'spaza' shops suffer as big retail rolls in
    In this corner of South Africa's black township of Soweto, the biggest building used to be the Catholic church. Now it's been overshadowed by a shopping center and business has only gotten worse for Grace, a 68-year-old shopowner. Like many proprietors of "spaza" shops - the informal stores that dot township corners - Grace barely manages to keep afloat as more of her neighbors head to the mall. Grace has been running the shop with her husband since 1993, the year before South Africa's first all-race elections.
