Beer Can Chicken Class!

Tuesday, July 30

Get ready to raise a glass and ignite your taste buds in our Cooking Class! We’re firing up the flavors with a menu that’s sure to quench your thirst and satisfy your cravings. We’ll start with a classic, beer can chicken that’s so moist and tender, you’ll be hooked from the first bite. Next, we’ll tantalize your taste buds with roasted salmon, smothered in a tangy lemon caper sauce that will leave you wanting more. And because we know you love carbs, we’re serving up a creamy sundried tomato risotto that will become your new go-to comfort food. To round out the meal, we’ll fire up the grill for some crispy grilled asparagus and finish it all off with a classic bananas foster, because who doesn’t love caramelized bananas and brown sugar? So, join us for a class that’s sure to be a real treat – your taste buds will be singing ‘cheers’!

Food is my life! I attended culinary school at the College of Dupage, received a bachelor degree in Culinary Arts at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh and masters in Education from Kaplan University. After a restaurant circuit I’ve been executive chef for various companies and institutions. I am currently a director of Food Service at a retirement home and I still teach culinary arts at the college of Lake County - which I love. I’ve traveled extensively and love picking up cooking techniques and flavors. There’s almost nothing I can’t cook but my favorite is classical French. I love cooking, teaching and sharing a great evening with our guests!
