Cooking demo, Saturday

On Saturday, Monadnock Oil and Vinegar will host its monthly Drop-in Cooking demo. Guest Chef Jim Shuel teach the class at 43 Grove St. The theme of this month’s event is “Super Foods with Super Taste,” and will feature a live cooking demonstration and free tastings.

Based on what Shuel calls “Super Foods,” he will be presenting his Cajun Lightning Chicken BBQ, a Superfoods salad incorporating kale, quinoa, almonds, beets and mandarins dressed with oils and vinegars available at the store. A healthy dessert bar rounds out the meal. The demo is free to the public, and runs from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Shuel is the head chef and manger for The Apple Hill Center for Chamber Music summer camp in Nelson, and an avid culinary competitor. Some of his recent accomplishments include: Grand Prize Winner in the Chobani Greek Yogurt contest with his “Super Food Snack Bar” in the healthy snack category; Monadnock Shopper Holiday Recipe winner for his “Holiday Stuffed Salmon”; Grand Prize winner in the 2003 Cattlemen’s BBQ Sauce competition for his Cajun Lightning Chicken BBQ recipe; and the Legacy Chef participant at “Men Who Cook,” a fundraiser for Monadnock Family Services.

Shuel lives in Rindge, and is the owner and principal of Chef Jim’s Culinary Services, featuring custom catering, consulting, instruction and personal chef service.
