What’s dependable, durable, super affordable, making a welcome comeback, and will last a lifetime? Cheater, you peeked at the title! That’s right – it's cast iron. 

It may seem old-fashioned and remind you of grandma’s kitchen (which isn’t really a bad thing, is it?) but when it comes to cookware, the cast iron skillet is not going anywhere. And when it comes to teaching us how to use it, there’s nobody better suited for the job than one of our most popular instructors, Chef Richard McPeake.

Chef Richard is excited to show off his own brand of culinary expertise as he walks you through the art of cast iron cooking while teaching you how to prepare some of his favorite southern-inspired dishes like Southern Fried Chicken Tenders, Acadian Corn Maque Choux (pronounced mock shoo) and Cheesy Corn & Jalapeno Beer Bread. Whoa!  He’s a wealth of knowledge in the kitchen with over 25 years of professional cooking under his toque, so you’ll be learning from one of the best in the business. 

Tonight, Chef Richard will teach you much about versatile cast iron cookware – highly valued for its cooking properties because it evenly distributes and holds heat. It’s great for deep-frying, searing and even baking … and can go from the stovetop, into an oven or even onto the grill! What other cooking vessel can make those claims? 

And did you know there’s a right and wrong way of cleaning and caring for your cookware? Hint….it’s called seasoning, and when done right, your cast iron cookware will last a lifetime. Chef will show you how it’s done.  

After this informative class, you'll fall in love with that cast iron skillet collecting dust in your kitchen and you won't know how you lived without learning the right way to cook with it!
