Hey, everybody.....the 4th of July holiday is upon us, and guess what?.......backyard pool parties and get-togethers are BACK!! So why not take your menus up a notch and impress your family and friends!  Get in on this super fun Thursday night cooking class as Chef & Lead Instructor Jill Garcia Schmidt is ready to show you right way to grill Burgers and Chicken Kabobs.

The average Joe (and Jill) churns out a cattleman’s share of hamburgers on their grill each year. Then why do most folks struggle with how to cook them correctly?  Chef Jill (who, by the way, is NO average Jill!)....IS a HUGE burger lover!) and she says “No More Ho Hum Burgers!”

Chef Jill is an engaging culinary professional with years of cooking experience under her toque....plus, she's tons of fun! She's eager to share her pro tips on how cooking the perfect burger, is done right.

Tonight, she'll cover everything -  from how to season the meat (yep, there’s a right way that makes all the difference!), the proper way to handle the beef, correct cooking temperatures, when to add the cheese and how to cook until it melts into a molten covering of ooey, gooey, goodness (‘cause a burger ain’t a burger without the cheese, am I right?!) and lots more handy tricks of the trade. You’ll be grilling & flippin’ burgers like pros in no time!

What the heck, let’s learn some presentation skills and some awesome add on toppings for our burgers, while we're at it!  Summer meals can’t be ALL about burgers though, so Chef Jill will also walk you through the steps to create THE best Chicken Kabobs you’ve ever had - made with marinated chicken and colorful vegetables, all threaded onto skewers and cooked to perfection. YUM! 

And, finally, a summertime cookout isn’t complete without a sweet treat, so get ready to learn Chef Jill’s refreshing Pink Lemonade Pie. It's soooo good! 

Don’t miss this fabulous cooking class that is guaranteed to take your summertime cookouts to the next level!  You’re welcome.
