Mastering Meat- SOLD OUT!
Thursday, September 19th
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:

  • Pickle Brined Pan Fried Chicken
  • Ginger Soy Marinated Grilled Flank Steak
