Cajun Cooking Class
10 May 2013
I will be teaching Cajun 101 at Whole Foods on Friday evening, May 10. Don’t know the difference between gumbo and etouffee? Jambalaya and sauce piquante? And just what is Cajun, and is it different from Creole?
We’ll make gumbo, dirty rice and maybe even crawfish pie.
Cost is $30, which includes PLENTY to eat!
Register for the class HERE.
PS – I will also have copies of “Hunt, Gather, Cook” available if anyone wants to buy one.
BlogHer Food 2013
7 June 2013
Again, details are TBD here, but I do know that I will be leading a knife skills workshop. My goal: To give the blade-phobic a new lease on their cutlery. Sharp knives are your best friend, so long as you respect them. I will walk you through which knives are used for which reasons, as well as some basic knife skills every good home cook ought to know.
Butcher, Baker, Ice Cream Maker Workshop
7-14 July 2013
Zapata Ranch, CO
I’ll be leading classes on butchering, cooking and foraging for the ranch’s “Butcher, Baker, Ice Cream Maker week.” I will be joined by famous ice cream maker Kitty Travers of La Grotta Ices and expert baker William Werner of Craftsman and Wolves for a weeklong series of seminars and hands-on learning. I’ll be focusing on working with game birds, bison and pork, and will guest chef at least one of the nights — and sous chef when the others get their turn at the helm.
If you’ve never heard of Zapata Ranch, its a serious deal. More than 100,000 acres — and owned by The Nature Conservancy — it is a working ranch that also hosts this sort of events. Here’s the hitch: It ain’t cheap. It will cost $2,500 per person for the week, which includes meals, lodging, instruction and materials. I can promise great food and a great chance to learn some serious skills in a gorgeous setting.
Space is limited to 12 people. Interested? Email cowboy@Zranch.org for more details.
