Chef du Jour

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have a few hours to spend with a culinary expert? Wait no more! Register today for one of our Chef du Jour classes to sample new cuisines or to learn new and fun ways to prepare the foods that you've always enjoyed!

These are not your typical cooking "demonstrations."

In many similar classes, you sit back and watch a chef do all of the cooking as he or she demonstrates a variety of cooking techniques. Our classes are not for onlookers, but rather for those of you who are ready to get your hands (and clothes) a little dirty. You will actually be doing the cooking, learning three to five new recipes in the process. So come to class dressed comfortably and be ready for some fun!

Offered approximately once a month, our Chef du Jour classes take place at the McCutchen House, located on the historic Horseshoe, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturdays (unless otherwise specified). Be sure check our events calendar regularly for updated information on new classes. Seats are limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Salmon 101

Jams and Jellies 101

With costs increasing for produce every year, it makes sense to prepare your own preserves and take advantage of seasonal fruits while they're on sale. We'll show you how to produce your own jams at home and get great, consistent results. You'll also get recipes. Best of all, you'll be taking your creations home.
