Couples Cooking Class - Cutting Edge Knife Skills for 2

Learn how to slice and dice like a professional with Chef Laura.

Sharpen your knife skill as you prepare three courses completely from scratch! Chef Laura will teach you and your partner basic knife skills that you'll hone as you chop ingredients for two inventive salads that can be easily recreated at home.

Begin by slicing two types of Napa cabbage, among other ingredients, for a Thai peanut salad, then dice jicama and mango for a simple salad served with cilantro and Asian-inspired dressing. Also, learn how to break down a chicken or fillet an entire fish upon request. For dessert, learn how to create a tangy spiced pineapple dessert.

Guests are welcome to bring wine and beer to enjoy during the class.

What a fun night! Chef Laura was an excellent teacher and host. We honed our knife skills chopping up veggies for the soup, stuffed mushrooms, and sauce. We learned all about different types of mushrooms and how to clean and cook them. So many things to learn! And in the end, the meal was delicious and we had plenty of leftovers to take home along with the recipes. (My mother-in-law was also pleased that she and Chef Laura attended the same university... LOL.)

Chef Laura was a wonderful host. We learned a ton that we could use beyond the class, and the food was delicious. Big fun.
