Leave the stress that goes with preparing for the holiday season behind, and join us for a special 'up close & personal'-style, limited enrollment class, where you’ll get what you have always dreamed of… a delicious seafood dinner along with awesome lessons in cooking like a rock star from our own CCKC Executive Chef Jill Garcia Schmidt. 

Chef Jill has a laid-back teaching style that you’ll love, and she’s excited to share her deep culinary experience.  You’ll be amazed as she shows off her mad skills, while divulging some of her favorite tips, while teaching you to whip up a gourmet seafood meal with a California influence that’s perfect for entertaining.

Tonight’s recipes will take your cooking repertoire to another level as Chef Jill teaches some essential culinary techniques like knife skills, whisking, searing, sauce-making and more.  

Our gourmet feast starts off with Coastal Prawns with Citrus Butter and Red Chiles as tasty appetizers and follows up with lovely Winter Salad with champagne vinaigrette.  Then we’ll dive right into the water as Chef teaches techniques for cooking fancy-schmancy Lobster Tails and serve it with drawn butter for dipping, Pan Seared Scallops with White Wine and Herb Sauce, and Vegetable Rice Pilaf for our perfectly paired side. For dessert, you’ll help Chef Jill prepare a fantastic Pecan and Honey Creme Brulee dessert....to-die-for! 

You’ll get your hands in the cooking action for a few of the other dishes in tonight’s menu, as well.  We’ll end our class as we sit down as a group to dine on our seafood masterpieces. And, of course, we’ll pair our fabulous dishes with some lovely California wines.

Who says gourmet has to be stuffy?  Let’s go “under the sea” and have fun holiday cooking in the kitchen. Registration is limited, so sign up today!
