The schedule finds a great mixture of recipes and techniques highlighting the talents of the instructors of CPT....so call, get registered and join us for fun filled evenings!
IT'S EASY BEING GREEN: Especially now with all the "green" products available. Our shopping bags and tissue paper are made from recycled goods and we always try to use local, organic foods and products in all of our cooking classes.
Introducing New Products to CPT:
NESPRESSO Espresso-Coffeemakers ! Simple, elegant, single cup coffee, and their amazing Aeroccino automatic frothers ! Drop in for a sample
SODASTREAM Home Soda Maker System ! Save time, money, reduce the sugar and salt in your sodas, and learn about all the recycle components built nto theis great line.
USA Pans ! We are very proud to announce the introduction of a bakeware line, made in America, out of recycled steel, and coated with Silica - which is a form of glass, made from sand ! No teflon, very heavy duty, and easy to clean, we love baking on these, and we're sure you will too !
Cutting Boards of Recyclable cardboard from Epicurean are fabulously green,good for your knives, dishwasher safe and good for the environment. Wood tones or black and in a variety of shapes and sizes. All in all, a good thing for everyone's kitchens.
Non- stick pans with NO Teflon!.SCANPAN from Denmark! Made from Ceramic and Titanium, we absolutely love these pans. We believe they are far superior to the "diamond" cookware on the market, if only because those pans still contain teflon ! We cook eggs in them with no fat of any kind and they slide out onto the plate. Use metal or wood utensils and the handles take up to 550 degrees oven heat. Absolutely the best! Their green sticker says it all.
Cookware from All-Clad, Mauviel, Dansk, LeCreuset, Staub and Emile Henry, heat efficiently and quickly to save energy. We have a large selection of sizes to choose from. Bamboo Kitchen Towels, manufactured from renewable resources, are another of our favorite "green" products. Absorbent, wash beautifully and need no ironing. That's a great combination and a good item for all.
In order to better serve our customers and students, we are members of Gourmet Catalog buying group. This offers us the ability to buy like the "big guys" and pass the savings on to you, our customers. We share travel expenses with many other cooking schools to save on the cost of transportation so that we can keep our classes affordable for our students. It is our goal to be good and fair merchants to ourselves, our clientele and our environment. GO GREEN!
We have expanded our selections of spices, baking items, finishing salts and flavored products and so we our now offering more specialty food items. We have found some wonderful new products for your kitchen pantries including Murray River Sea Salt; West Indies Nutmegs, Garam Masala, Herbs de Provence, Achiote Paste and Chinese Five Spices.

COOKING CLASS SCHEDULE 2012
In November, 1996 Cook's Pots & Tabletops was established and founded on the concept of cooking with friends and family....sharing tables with people we love. Thus, the passion for the store was born and continues twelve years later. The staff at Cook's Pots & Tabletops is dedicated to offering the highest level of education we can possibly provide. Our food sources are organic and sustainable when possible and we love to work with the local producers and farmers of our area. We invite these hard working 'foodies" to join us in the kitchen and share their knowledge with you our students and fellow cooks and all share the same goal...a passion for good food, easily prepared and easily enjoyed.
What's new at CPT? We have applied and been granted an Oregon Liquor License. Why you ask? So that we can keep the cost of our classes at a fair and equitable amount for all. Some students do not wish to have a glass of wine and this seems to be a fair method of avoiding a raise in class fees. For those wishing to enjoy a glass of wine, they will now be able to purchase wine to accompany their dinner.
However, there are a couple of rules attached: Tickets must be purchased before the class.this is so as not to be disruptive to the instructors during class and a maximum of two glasses per student will be the limit.
When special winemakers visit our kitchen, bottles (cases) will be made available for students to purchase also. Otherwise, enjoy a glass during class but make your regular purchases of wine from Jiffy Market, Long's Meat Market or Capella's Marketï¿½three of our favorite wine providers.
On another note, please be sure to visit our website for the latest updates on classes, information on what's happening in the store, and see our shopping on-line link. Thru our unique association with other independent gourmet shops, we can offer an even larger selection of items than we can carry in our store. In order to facilitate better communications, e mail CPT at info@Cookspots.com and we will add you to our e mail list updates!
