Our courses will include the best of the best of what is available on the day of the class, hand selected for freshness and seasonality. Place a little trust in the chef and you’re in for a truly unique culinary experience at a fraction of the price. Please be sure to note any dietary restrictions or allergies you may have when making your reservation. Pre-registration is required. On the menu:

  • Menu will be determined by the Chef based on what is best at the market that day!

Introduction to Cooking Meat- SOLD OUT!
Wednesday, May 22nd
6:00 PM - 8:30 PM
Cooking Classroom, $40 per person

This class will be taught by Chef Ani. There is some serious science behind cooking protein rich foods such as meat and seafood. Adding meat to a hot pan or oven seems like a simple thing, but there’s a lot that goes into giving you a perfect sear, a precise doneness and crispy skin. Luckily, with a few tricks of the trade, proper pan selection, a little patience and a little time, you can turn out restaurant-quality proteins without making a reservation or paying a premium. The first step to cooking great meat is to find a great butcher, and we’ve got you covered. In addition to our always available helpful butchers, Chef Ani can teach you how to perfectly poach, grill, pan fry, pan sear, roast, stir-fry and braise delicious meaty dishes. You’ll also learn how to build a great broth, how to make a glaze, how to make a spice rub and how to properly dredge or bread meat. You’ll discuss thermodynamics, pan selection and the science of seasoning, then tuck into the delicious dishes that you will create with warmer temperatures and quick meals in mind. This class has gluten free options available upon request (please specify when registering). This class has hands on opportunities as desired. Pre-registration is required. On the menu:

  • Coconut Milk Poached Spiced Turkey Meatballs
  • Stir Beef and Broccoli
  • Best Grilled Chicken Breast

Candida Cleanse- SOLD OUT!
Thursday, May 23rd
6:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Cooking Classroom, $35 per person

This class will be taught by Chef Jeremy. A happy gut is a healthy gut, and keeping your gut healthy can be a little tricky- it’s all about balancing different types of naturally occurring bacteria so they can keep undesirable bacteria in check, and sometimes, your gut needs a little help from your kitchen. One of the most common over-abundant bacteria is candida, which loves the high sugar and starch of the standard American diet, and can really wreak some havoc if left unchecked. A diet naturally low in carbohydrates that limits sugar and gluten is found by some to combat the grown of candida and ease symptoms of an overabundance of it, and these foods are naturally delicious and easy to work with. Chef Jeremy will share with you his favorite low carb, low sugar strategies, whether you’re looking to address candida specifically, or just looking for a good dietary reset. Please note that we are not medical professionals, and that this class is intended for culinary instruction only- please consult your physician or healthcare provider with medical or nutrition questions related to treating medical conditions. This class is gluten free but cannot offer vegan or vegetarian options. This class has minimal hands on opportunities, and is mostly a demonstration style class. Pre-registration is required. On the menu:

  • Chicken Bone Broth with Ginger and Scallions
  • Chef’s Salad with Nuts and Spring Vegetables
  • Grilled New York Strip Steak with Chimichurri Sauce
  • Roasted Cauliflower and Brussels Sprouts
  • Fresh Strawberry Parfait

Our courses will include the best of the best of what is available on the day of the class, hand selected for freshness and seasonality. Place a little trust in the chef and you’re in for a truly unique culinary experience at a fraction of the price.
