"PLAYING WITH FIRE" hands-on LUNCH

PLAYING WITH FIRE is the name of a new course which is mostly demonstration with some student-guest participation. It’s all about backyard cooking with fire!  The goal is to cover lots of grilling techniques as well as to introduce the wood fired oven that we added in 2016. Of course the class culminates in LUNCH with your hand made pizzas, entrée proteins, side salads & veggies and of course, the first glass of house wine is on us. Finally, dessert is a tarte tartan made in a cast iron pan then finished in the wood fired oven.
As with all our events, “fresh” is our goal. Summer is the most abundant season for fresh, and combined with outdoor cooking you get “the true flavors of summer.”
Menus are subject to change without notice.

So put on your aprons and wash-up as we are about to play with fire.

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 CUSTOM EVENTS 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.
