Cooking Class: Master an Elegant Shellfish Dinner

In this hands-on cooking class, Chef Shelley invites all seafood lovers to gather in the kitchen to create a fabulous three-course meal from the bounty of the sea!

You'll begin with a demonstration on mussels Roberto — a twist on a savory seafood favorite — with applewood smoked bacon, fresh herbs, beer and clam juice used to enhance the broth, to be sopped up with French crusty bread. Next up, you'll create a flavorful dish of jumbo tiger shrimp tossed in scampi and served over spaghetti squash. You'll finalize the spread with colorful and sweet mixed berry shortcakes!
