Cooking Class: Presidential American Fare

In this one-of-a-kind cooking class, Chef Dan will teach you how to prepare a menu he once served to a former president and first lady at their country club. After creating and tasting these dishes, you’ll feel presidential yourself! You’ll first prepare savory grilled shrimp and grits, followed by an enticing wedge salad topped with sliced gorgonzola dressing. For the main course, you’ll make a perfectly grilled veal chop with a side of bacon-wrapped fingerling potatoes and brown-sugar glazed Brussels sprouts. To finish the meal, Chef Dan will teach you how to craft a mouthwatering apple caramel trifle.
