Wednesday, October 1st
6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Cooking Classroom, $30 per person

This class will be taught by Chef Ani. What do you do when the dropping temperatures get you down? Think like a Bavarian! Oktoberfest, one of the most popular food festivals in all the world is about celebrating heritage, food and fun with the flavors of southern Germany.This hearty, comforting cuisine is where a good portion of Midwestern cuisine gets its roots. Chef Ani has fiddled with the classics a bit to provide recipes that have the much beloved stick-to-your-ribs savor of traditional German cuisine while making it a little bit lighter for the modern palate. Areas of focus in this class will include how to make homemade German-style mustard, shaping pretzels, working with traditional German sausages and how to perfectly bread and fry schnitzel. This class has hands on opportunities as desired. Pre-registration is required. On the menu:

  • Apfelschorle (Sparkling Cider)

  • Homemade Pretzels

  • A Variety of German Sausages with Homemade Mustard

  • Spaetzle (Boiled German Dumplings)

  • Schnitzel with Braised Red Cabbage

  • Deconstructed Black Forest Cake
