Last Thursday evening 5 of us from Mennonite Girls Can Cook participated in a cooking class at Lepp Farm Market in Abbotsford, B.C. Unfortunately my camera was on a wrong setting and my photos are dark.
Judy, Lovella and Marg checked over the lists and then we headed out into the store to shop for our ingredients.
Bev and Lovella got ingredients ready for Lovella’s Paska.
Guests who had paid for the class started arriving. Some came an hour before the class was to begin. Bev was at the stove preparing her Green Bean Soup. This was something I was going to enjoy for the first time.
Judy and Marg started preparing their Zwieback. A traditional Mennonite bun.
At the end of the evening it was my turn to present my Paska spread, Seerney Paska. Although I am not a natural at being in front of a crowd everyone was very gracious. This was the first time many of the gals had ever tasted this sweet cheese spread.
Lovella kept us organized and on task and we all worked well together. I think I enjoy being a Sous Chef, behind the scenes, instead of front and center.
At the end of the evening we sat down and enjoyed the fruits of our labor and if I have to say so myself, it was all very good.
Here’s a link for Lovella’s Paska. Here’s a link to Ellen’s Sweet Cheese Spread for Paska, Seerney Paska.
I’ll be linking up with Mary at Little Red House for Mosaic Monday.
Photobucket replaced all my photos with these blurred out versions and they are holding my photos hostage until I pay them lots of money. I’m slowly going through all my posts and trying to clean them up and replacing some photos. Such a bother.

I’m a behind the scenes kind of girl too, Ellen. That and I like the sitting down and eating part!
Looked like you all had a good time — even if it’s a first for most of you 🙂 And your Seerney Paska turned out beautifully.
I’m telling ya it looks like HARD work to me. But I wouldn’t mind trying and tasting the fruits of all your labor 🙂 Looks like you were all having a good time. Mahalo for sharing 🙂
Looks like a great time and what fun to be cooking with the group of friends. I have not heard of Paska before, what does it taste like?
This looks like a lot of fun and some interesting food! I love how you all went shopping in your aprons! You did a good job to lighten the photos so they looked good!
Looks like everyone had a great time. I have never made Paska before, but everyone in blogland say it is easy to make, so I must give it a try.
Great post and wonderful pictures! This honestly looked like a lot of fun. Your Paska looks amazing!
I would say you did a great job. That is a wonderful looking Paska. I will have to go look that up. I am not familiar with that dish. Much to my disappointment. I think I need to know how to do that. Love cooking schools.
It would be fun to attend a cooking class with you ladies. I often check the MGCC blog for recipes when looking for something new.
Thanks for sharing this special event.
It all looks delicious and a lot of fun!
Way to go Mom B! I’m so proud of you! You’re an incredible cook & baker. How wonderful that you’re sharing your recipes and gifts with others. Love you!
Oh my! I wondered about that “new” Paska spread. I am going to give it a whirl. I am. I am baking Paska nearly every day this week to give away. Thanks so much. (These cooking sessions look like so much fun!)
Looks like you all had a great time while creating some delicious food!
That looks like a lor of fun! I will check out the recipes!
Oh, dh’s smoker arrived. I’ll let you know when he makes something. Thanks again for the info.
Your event looks like everyone was having fun and getting to learn about something they may not have tried before. Wonderful. V
We loved having you come up to Canada. You are always welcome to join in our fun. That paska spread was souffle light. ..just delicious. I am so glad I had a chance to taste the way it really is supposed to taste.
These pictures are great. I would love to take a cooking class 😀
I am visiting from Mosaic Monday.
What a fun thing to do…of course I would have to be a student!!!
Have a beautiful week!!!
The cooking class sounds so fun! I enjoyed all the pictures. What really caught my eye were the pretty aprons you ladies wore!!!
Looks like everyone is enjoying themselves, what a fun time! Great shots!
cute aprons, and how fun to shop the market for your ingredients. Here you are being a “real” home economist. I remember taking a demonstration techniques class in college and I did NOT like it at all.
The pictures say it all – the industry, the friendship, the good food and the good time!
Your cheese spread looks so pretty – and I have no doubt it tasted good too!
You looked great too Ellen – lovely apron and beautiful smile! I wish I could have been a member of the class. what fun!
What a beautiful post, even if your camera was on the wrong setting. That was so much fun and I’m glad you made the effort to come out.
I can’t wait to dig in and make that spread now…I ate most of it by myself.
Way to go, sister! Len would be proud of you, because he says we, B’s, never go out of our comfort zones. Your paska looked lovely.
I saw more photos of your cooking class on Lovella’s blog just now…it looks like a lot of fun!
Yeah! Good for you, stepping out of your comfort zone. Your spread looks lovely and best of all it sounds like you each had a marvelous time. Proud of you, Ellen.
This looks great! Hope to see you at My Dream Canvas
Loved hearing and seeing things from your view. Shopping at Lepp’s is wonderful! So glad you could make it for this class…your spread is one I have to try….looks soooooo good!
Looks like you had a great time!
Look at you go, Ellen! You DO look very happy as Sous Chef! That looks like a very fun class… I like classes with edible results! ;o) Thanks for taking us along… Happy Days and Happy Easter ((HUGS))
How fun! I would have loved to attend that.
