Weekly Wrap Up

Check out the highlights from last week!

Ordinary to Outstanding!
Last Wednesday, Chef Ian taught a class on how to make ordinary meals outstanding! Students learned to created fresh, simple Sauteed Red Snapper with Lemon Aioli, then they gave the meal a gourmet twist: Potato Crusted Red Snapper with Avocado Aioli and Creme Fraiche. After they made their meal they enjoyed it with a glass of wine!

STEAK. Mmmm...
Thursday was our Steakhouse Favorites class! Students learned how to recreate their steakhouse standbys in their own kitchen to save money (and calories!). They made all the classics: Wedge Salad with Bleu Cheese, Pepper Crusted Beef Fillets with Gorgonzola Butter, Roasted Forest Mushroom and Goat Cheese Mashed Potatoes with Truffle Oil and Mini Creme Brulees! Talk about a decadent meal! Check out one of our students whisking her way to perfect mashed potatoes:

Cuban Night
Students escaped last weekend's dreary weather and came to heat up the kitchen for Cuban Night! They learned to make Plantain Crusted Shrimp and Pineapple Skewers with Lime Sour Cream, Spicy Black Bean and Pork Stew with Chayote Slaw and Chocolate Pecan Rum Truffles with Guava Puree. Delicious!

Our next theme night is coming up soon! Don't miss our Southern Cookin' Dinner Party on May 23!

Don't forget the kids!
Kids can cook, too! We have classes for toddlers to teens. Check out these shots of little ones in the kitchen with Chef Tabi!

Our Baking Series is on the rise

Our Baking Series kicked off this Sunday! Cookology's new resident baker Brad Spates taught a session on Classic American Pastry where he showed students how to create Perfect Brownies (not too cakey, not too fudgey!) and the key to making and decorating custom sugar cookies. Check out some of their creations below.

It's not too late to sign up for the series! We're offering the remaining four sessions at a prorated price! You can sign up for the Sunday Morning Series or the Tuesday Evening Series for only $130!
