Join Rita to create a German Onion Tart - a delicious specialty served as the months turn cooler and especially popular when the new wine, or "Moscht" comes out in the fall, a few weeks after crush. Zwiebelkuchen contains onions, as indicated, as well as caraway and often bacon or ham. In comparison to quiche, it is usually baked on yeast dough, like pizza.
This dough and onion combination is particularly flavorful because the lean dough becomes crispy in the oven and does not overwhelm the toppings.

The nominal class fee of $16 includes the hands-on demonstration, recipes, one drink, and tasting. Beer, wine and soda will also be available for purchase. Classes sell out quickly so please reserve your space promptly.
Kulturkueche - German Cooking Series is held monthly for all to learn German culinary traditions. We know your Oma made it better - that was the love.

Production TBA Their goal is to share their passion for Shakespeare and theatre with our community. Shakespeare is cool. The plays are beautiful and exciting, full of love, lust, sorrow, revenge, magic and joy. Performing these amazing works under the open sky only heightens the emotion and the sense of adventure shared by the actors and audiences during a performance. We envision local residents, families, Shakespeare lovers, and those new to Shakespeare's work all to come out for a picnic and to enjoy a free performance in the fresh air of a Chicago summer. Creating and sharing this experience sounds like a wonderful way to spend our summer. We hope you will agree and come join us in the park!
