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.

We did a class with Chef Dan as a Manager Meeting Activity and it was so great! The event allowed everyone to participate but also allowed for networking and talking! He was also very accommodating in helping us find a venue for the activity!

Shout out to Chef Dan! He’s so charming friendly kind and knowledgeable!! I Took my best friend to this class and we both absolutely loved it! The food was incredibly delicious- some of the best flavors we’ve ever had! Don’t hesitate if you are wondering if you would like this class. Wear comfortable shoes as you will be standing a lot, eat a light supper Bf you come since cooking takes a few hours and if you’re afraid of Covid and germs just stay home and forego enjoying a fun evening of cooking with a true pro whose cooked for presidents and celebrities! From a mom whose cooked for years for my family - I wish I’d met Dan 30 years ago to learn so many cooking secrets!

Amazing experience! We don’t often splurge, but I’m glad we did! We joined for the fancy Italian dinner and it was so yummy! Everything was planned, prepared, and organized perfectly! We even got to bring home extra food & ingredients! Dan was a great host! He was kind and flexible and helped us do everything perfectly.
