Tonight is your chance to go back and experience some of Kansas City’s famous dishes you thought were gone forever  Let’s dive deep into the world of local culinary history in this semi-private ‘up close and personal’ cooking class where you’ll get the chance to go behind the scene and into the world of a seasoned culinary pro.  

In this limited enrollment class, expect some hands-on cooking time as you work alongside professional Chef Richard McPeake.  Chef Richard is the chef who actually designed the menus and dishes themselves for the original Plaza III, Fedora’s, and Bristol on the Country Club Plaza among many other legendary restaurants. That’s right, we’ll dish up some memories by way of a unique dinner experience highlighting legendary local restaurants that helped change the fine dining experience in Kansas City.

To take this once-in-a-lifetime dining experience into the realm of extraordinary, Chef McPeake will show you how to prepare these treasured dishes as he brings back classic dishes from restaurant legends starting with Plaza III’s Award-Winning Steak Soup and Champignon Magique (the original Crabmeat-Stuffed Mushrooms).

The Bristol received accolades including the Silver Spoon and Top Restaurant awards under Chef Richard’s guidance due to incredible recipes like tonight’s Sliced Tomato Salad with Black Pepper Vinaigrette and Pan Sautéed Lemon Sole with Lemon Parsley Butter.

With Chef Richard at the helm, Fedora’s was celebrated as one of the Top 10 Bistros in America and it’s easy to see why with dishes like tonight’s Pan Sautéed Chicken Saltimbocca with Sage Glaze and Sautéed Spaghetti Squash. Chef will feature Fedora’s Blue-Ribbon Award-Winning Decorated Chocolate Truffle Cake for our fabulous dessert.

We hope you’ll join us for this unique evening of excellent cuisine and fond food memories and a fabulous culinary experience as Chef Richard regales us with stories that only he knows and insights to how these dishes came about at these legendary restaurants.
