The KITCHEN is honored to welcome The Essex, Vermont's Culinary Resort, for a special hands-on cooking class celebrating the regional flavors and seasonal bounty of our next door neighbor, Vermont! These classes will feature Vermont American Cuisine - a gastronomy celebration of Vermont ingredients used in American cuisine with reginal and global influences. The menus and ingredients support local agriculture and sustain Vermont’s unique food culture along with preserving our local landscapes.
Join us to learn new culinary techniques, deepen your recipe bench, and hone your cooking skills, all while working with some of the best local produce from Vermont and Massachusetts, sourced from local farmers and artisans. We welcome all skill-levels.
In this lively, hands-on cooking class you’ll learn how to utilize the produce and products of local farmers. Guided by Chef Dante Trisciuzzi of The Essex, 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 craft beers from Vermont breweries that pair perfectly with recipes we’ll be making. Each taste is about 1/3 of a glass.
