Cooking Class: Hearty Steakhouse Dinner

This hands-on cooking class focuses on classic steakhouse dishes. With guidance from Chef David, you'll learn to make hearty meats and delicious sides, from achieving the perfect sear on your steak to baking a decadent dessert. Begin by preparing shrimp cocktail with tangy homemade sauce. Then learn to sear a New York strip steak on the stovetop in a cast iron pan. On the side you'll prepare twice baked potatoes and charred broccolini, and for dessert you'll whip up a luscious chocolate lava cake.

Chef David was excellent and the space was professional and conducive to the experience. He didn’t just teach us several great recipes, he taught us knife skills, space preparation and other cooking skills over the course of the lesson that we will use for years to come. He also easily addressed allergies so that everyone could enjoy the full meal. He made the lesson seem easy and fun, a true testament to a great teacher, clear instructions and an organized kitchen and plan. We enjoyed it and highly recommend him to anyone considering a cooking class.

This was so much fun! Can’t wait to go back. David was fun and knowledgeable, the space was super cute, and the food was delish. All recipes I now feel very comfortable making at home.
