Lessons From A Seafood Chef: Cooking With Shellfish with Chef Richard McPeake
If you’re a lover of all things seafood and want to learn the proper techniques to cook shellfish to perfection, you won’t want to miss this very special class that you simply will not find anywhere else!
Kansas City has some great local resources when it comes to accessing fresh shellfish. And you’re in luck because we have access to one of the best Seafood Chefs in the business!
Longtime CCKC instructor, Chef Richard McPeake, has developed a passion for seafood over the years with extensive experience at some of the best seafood restaurants in the country. He’s actually designed the original recipes for the popular seafood favorite, the Bristol Bar & Grill, right here in KC. Yep, you can rest assured you’ll be learning from a real pro.
Tonight, he’ll share his expert tips and show you how to buy, clean & shuck shellfish, oysters, lobster and, of course, shrimp. Chef will explore a variety of cooking techniques and methods while teaching you how to properly pan sear, how to deglaze for flavor infusion – also a lesson on how to make velvety shellfish broth. The possibilities are endless for this versatile broth.
We’ll learn while helping Chef prepare some of tonight’s delicious seafood dishes like Seared Shrimp with Whipped Scampi Butter, Fried Oysters with Remoulade, Crab Cakes with Black Bean Relish and Char-Grilled Fresh Oysters with White Wine Scallion and Garlic Butter. Oh, yeah, that’s what we’re talkin’ about!
Come enjoy a fun Friday night cooking class and learn to take the ‘scary’ out of cooking shellfish to perfection from a professional seafood chef!
