Beer’s complexity can also make it a little tricky to cook with, and in this class, we’ll take some of the mystery out of it. We’ll go over how to select the right beer for the right dish, when to use it as is and when to reduce it, and how to highlight the flavor of the beer in a full menu of sweet and savory dishes.

This class will be taught by Chef Jeremy. The foods of Italy have been a culinary staple in American culture for decades, and tonight, we’ll explore modernized versions of Italian foods based off the old favorites. The cuisine of Italy embraces a farm to table philosophy that reflects what we are trying to achieve with the local dining trend in this country right now, but they have been practicing eating this way in Italy for years! If you’ve ever thought about skipping the trek to a restaurant and instead doing something just as impactful, but more appealing to the senses, look no further. This class is chock full of cooking tips, demos and of course, mouthwatering food. Chef Jeremy will turn the routine of dinner into a fun and meaningful evening during which you can enjoy your company as well as a fantastic four-course meal without having to stress about the cooking. This class has gluten-free and pescatarian options available upon request (please specify when registering), but cannot be vegetarian or vegan. This class has hands on opportunities as desired.

Ingredient Spotlight: The Whole Chicken- ONE OPEN SPOT!
Wednesday, March 27th
6:00 PM - 8:30 PM
Cooking Classroom, $35 per person

This class will be taught by Chef Ani. These days, conscientious chefs, butchers and consumers are paying attention to how they’re using the meat they cook, butcher and buy, and there has been great emphasis placed on a classic idea that we discarded for the last century: using the whole animal. It’s economical and practical for restaurants and home cooks alike to make sure they use every edible morsel of the animal, and as a result, you see offal (organ or variety meats) and a wide array of different cuts of meat on restaurant menus and on blogs, magazines and television shows. While learning how to butcher and prepare a whole cow or pig might not be practical for the home cook, whole chickens are widely available, economical and culinary versatile. In this class, we’ll discuss how to break down and use every part of the chicken and the best cooking methods and flavor pairings for each one, and how to use the carcass to make a delicious stock. This class has gluten free options upon request and hands on opportunities as desired. Pre-registration is required. On the menu:

  • General Tso’s Chicken Wings
  • Crockpot Chicken Stock
  • Chicken Noodle Soup with Poached Chicken Meatballs
  • Grilled, Roasted Chicken Legs with Chimichurri Sauce
  • Crispy Chicken Breast Cutlets
  • Whole Roast Chicken with Garlic and Leeks
  • Quick Sautéed Chicken Thigh Tacos

Pre-registration for classes and select events required. See class description for specific instructions. Registration required no later than 48 hours prior to the class date.
