Celebrate Octoberfest in our kitchen this year!

Tonight’s 3-hour class taught by veteran chef, restaurateur, and culinary instructor, Chef Richard McPeake will explore the flavorful world of authentic family-style German cuisine.

Germany is known for its foods that are loaded with flavor and rich in tradition. They broil, sauté or braise smaller pieces of meat, and large pieces of meat are either braised or roasted. Often, they marinade tough cuts of meats in buttermilk, wine, beer or vinegar.

In this informative class, we’ll use some of these methods in class, plus learn essential culinary techniques such as knife skills, sautéing, and more as we learn to prepare traditional dishes such as Braised Beef Sauerbraten (Chef Richard will explain his grandmother’s three-day margination process, but he’ll improve on it by using a tumbler marinater!), Homemade Spatzle, Blaukraut (Braised Sweet & Sour Red Cabbage) and Fresh Apple Strudel using phyllo dough.

And that’s not all… as a bonus for tonight’s special Octoberfest celebration, we’ll pair some German wines that you’ll get to taste along with the dishes you’ll learn in class. Prost!
