Cooking Class - Southern Fried Chicken Picnic Lunch with Chef John

Learn the secret to making perfect fried chicken and classic sides.

Beautiful weather and eating outside go together like fried chicken and biscuits, and in this class you’ll learn to make both. Join Chef John and learn to make some all-American picnic fare fit for a day at the Hollywood Bowl.

First up, you’ll learn how to make juicy fried chicken with a perfectly crisp skin, paired with a hot pepper vinegar sauce. On the side you’ll have freshly baked Southern biscuits and potato with bacon salad. Top it all off with classic banana pudding and you’ll have a picnic basket full of Southern goodness.
