Cooking Class: Gourmet Cooking With a German Chef

The rich, rustic flavors of German cuisine come to life in this hearty European meal! Let Chef Dirk introduce you to the delicious possibilities of German recipes in this hands-on cooking class.

You'll begin with grilled appetizers that combine meat and vegetables with melted cheese before creating a Schweitzer Art green salad with pancetta and vinaigrette. For your entrée, prepare a Jägerschnitzel robed in mushroom cream sauce and served with spätzle. Finish up your lesson with pears flambés for dessert, seasoned with black pepper and fresh mint.

Chef Dirk was lovely and very communicative, however many of the items were pre-prepared and it felt somewhat disorganized.

Chef Dirk was super fun and we all had a great time. I would have liked the recipes printed up for us at the time of the class. Also, we paid an extra $650. for the space and we ate on plastic plates with plastic forks.

This was one of the most fun nights out I've had in a long time, not to mention one of the best meals! Chef Dirk is an energetic, personable host and an outstanding cook. He was fully prepared, and once we arrived, we were off and running. Over the next 3 hours, we prepared and enjoyed several courses, each as delicious as the last. I'm inspired to try some of these recipes at home to try share with friends. Highly recommended!
