PLAYING WITH FIRE is the name of a new series of semi-hands-on classes we are doing in our backyard wood fired oven (WFO) and wood fired grill! Each class culminates in a sit down LUNCH, outside, weather permitting.

Today we are stoking the wood fired back yard grill to make wood coals so we can take beautiful pieces of protein and grill them to perfection. Each class includes a medley of three types of meats appropriate for quick char grilling, such as beef, chicken, pork, lamb, ground meat sausage, and maybe even rabbit. (Oops, no, just kidding about that last one.)

For example: Beef could be striploin grilled then sliced, flat iron steaks, flank steak, sometimes we do in house ground sirloin burgers ( served on slider bun); Pork could include ribs, pork loin, T-bone chops; Chicken could include breast with bone and skin, hind quarters, thighs, wings, drumsticks; Lamb could be lamb loin whole then sliced, lamb chops not dressed. House made sausages could be on every class for variety.

Private Events

Any of our shows or class experiences can be designed just for your private party. (*) Imagine  having a room of your friends watching and dining during the Dinner Show or with aprons on and hands into the dough during a private PASTA 101 semi-hands-on class. Private experiences can be arranged by speaking directly with one of our representatives. See our suggestions for a private event page to learn more about the possibilities.


(*)Private groups of ten or less may join the regular scheduled classes and are expected to pay the regular price per person, gratuity optional.  Groups of 11 or more constitute a private event, and our pricing for those experiences depends upon the date, number in the party, type of experience, and of course, the menu. A service fee is always applied.
