Conquer your kitchen with these deep-dive classes! Each KITCHEN Master Class will focus on a different type of food to teach you about sourcing, preparing, seasoning and cooking each recipe to perfection. Cooking skills of all levels are welcome!
KITCHEN Master Class: Steak Three-Ways is a deluxe class. You'll eat your fill of the highest quality steak available; pasture-raised without hormones or antibiotics by the friendly folks at Chestnut Farms in Hardwick, MA.
In this lively, hands-on cooking class you’ll learn how to utilize the produce and products of the farmers and artisans of the Boston Public Market. Guided by Chef Jen you’ll create an exciting three-course meal based on seasonal, local food, and increase your comfort in the kitchen through new knife skills, techniques, and flavor profiles.
In addition to learning a new cooking style, you'll enjoy tastes of three local New England wines that pair perfectly with recipes we’ll be making, courtesy of The Massachusetts Wine Shop.
Come ready to roll up your sleeves and get cooking!
