Peachy Seiden, drawing from a background as a licensed dietitian and seasoned florist, doles out multi-pronged expertise during cooking sessions and floral arrangement classes that educate up to 20 pupils. Peachy divulges tips for searing, sanitation, and safety at Health Smart Cooking School, called to order on Saturdays at noon with the ceremonial clanging of the lunch gong. The twice-published author of nutrition-conscious cookbooks affords eaters a 90-minute inside peek into her kitchen techniques as she prepares two meals with the help of students, simultaneously unveiling her health-and-nutrition topic of the week. Students chow down on wholesome entrees as Peachy patiently wades through an onslaught of inquiries about diet, wellness, and Julia Child’s natural hair color. Upcoming eats include chicken stir-fry with cashews, jambalaya, shrimp lo mein, and Peachy’s chicken noodle soup.
Peachy’s two-hour bouquet-constructing classes kick off on Mondays at 7 p.m. and Saturdays at 2 p.m. Readying attendees for futures in floral design or assembling sprays to spruce up gloomy fallout shelters, Peachy imparts tidbits on bloom-grouping basics and tools, various techniques and styles, and hints for handling color, texture, form, and focal point. The hands-on sessions also elucidate the intricacies of cut-flower care as patrons wield scissors brought from home or purchased on site. Students should bring their own containers or borrow them from the instructor before embarking on one of six specialized classes, which range from Tabletop Centerpieces to Tropical and Asian Style Arrangements to Floral Crowns for Prized Garden Gnomes.
