Getting ready for the next Design House & a Pinterest account

We're getting ready for the December Design House, December 2nd, 3rd, and 4th.  We have a special guest to announce this month, Dinah Corley!

Dinah studied in London and Paris and has over 30 years of experience teaching cooking classes in the United States.  Dinah will be on hand December 2nd through the 4th at The Design House to sign copies of her new book, Gourmet Gifts.   Gourmet Gifts offers 100 scrumptious and splendid projects for the cook and crafter.  No gift demonstrates generosity and love more than one that is made by hand. And no homemade gift is more appreciated than one that’s edible, especially when it’s also pretty to look at.

{ Bacon & Cornmeal Spoon Bread }

{ Cardamom Coffee Can Cake }

{ Rose Petal Vinegar }

{ Fresh Frozen Berry Pops }

{ Strawberry Shortcake Trifle }

Hungry?  Want to see more?  For more information, you can visit Dinah's website and blog, where she shares recipes and edible gift giving ideas.

More About Dinah:  Dinah attended Le Cordon Bleu in both London and Paris, and soon earned her Grand D’Plome– the highest distinction for a Le Cordon Bleu student.  She also attended La Varrenne Cooking School in Paris, LeNotre at Versailles, and began living a whole season each year in the South of France.  It was there that she apprenticed under food visionary Simone Beck, an experience that led her to further culinary studies with Roger Verge, Michelle Girard, James Beard, and Julia Child.
For over 30 years, Dinah has been teaching her well-known cooking classes, with a network of students from Washington, DC to Martha’s Vineyard, where she lived for roughly 20 years.  There, she not only taught and wrote numerous food articles, she launched a second career as a restaurant designer and consultant.  She helped redesign Atria, a fine dining, New England cuisine restaurant in Edgartown, Massachusetts, and is currently working on a new restaurant project for Martha’s Vineyard, slated to open Summer 2012.
