Cooking Classes:

All-Star Celebrity Dinner:
Tyler’s Ultimate Beef Stew
This class features Tyler Florence’s Ultimate Beef Stew with a video guest appearance! Tyler’s fantastic recipe includes a few “secret ingredients” that will surprise you. We’ll also make James Beard’s famous Cream Biscuits to accompany the stew. If that weren’t enough, we’ll finish with Emeril Lagase’s Lemon & Blueberry Bread Pudding for dessert! We’ll reinforce professional techniques with demos followed by hands-on cooking. Come alone or with a friend to share the fun. You will have the option to take your dinner home to enjoy the next day. A materials fee of $15 (payable to instructor) covers the cost of food and supplies.

• Wed Dec 11 @ Glastonbury High School - 6 to 8:30 PM

My husband, Hank, took your class and I have really enjoyed all the meals he has prepared. I don't think I have cooked a meal since the course started. I kow he enjoyed the classes. And I thank you for turning my husband into a great cook. We really have fun and enjoy our meals.
