History of Food (hands-on cooking, education + dinner)

Thursday, 24 Apr 2014 6:30pm - 10pm

  • This event is fully booked, but you can add yourself to the waiting list.

This new series features culinary journey through some of the most exciting foods in the world!

Presented by our cities' best restaurant chefs and instructors, History of Food digs deep. We'll delve into geographic, historical, ethnic and even political influences that have shaped these cuisines, ingredients, and cooking styles. We'll throw on our aprons and get in the kitchen to learn techniques and tricks. And, of course, we'll eat!

Each class will feature in-depth education, the personal stories & travel experiences of these expert chefs, and a hands-on understanding of ingredients & techniques unique to each featured topic. We'll also pair our wines/beers to each cuisine for a full-featured experience.

It's appropriate to drool now.

This fantastic series is sponsored by Minnesota Monthly magazine - thanks guys!
