Date Night: Japan- SOLD OUT!
Friday, July 6th
6:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Cooking Classroom, $35 per person

This class will be taught by Chef Jeremy. The foods of Japan have a rich culinary heritage dating back hundreds of years. Japanese home and professional cooks approach food and cooking very differently- the philosophy, flavor profile and even the chef’s knife. Americans have learned a lot about the foods of Japan in the past few years, but that is just the tip of the iceberg. Skip the unromantic wait in line at your neighborhood restaurant and learn to whip up some new takes on classic Japanese cooking. This class is chock full of cooking tips, techniques and of course, delicious food. Chef Jeremy will guide you in turning the routine of dinner into a fun and meaningful evening during which you can enjoy each other’s company as well as a fantastic four-course meal without having to dress up or stress out. This class can be gluten free upon request (please specify upon registration) and has hands on opportunities as desired. Pre-registration is required. On the menu:

  • Sour Cherry Cosmopolitans (Virgin)
  • Roll Your Own Sushi
