Class Description: 

We're knee deep into the summer grilling season, and no one does barbecue and grilling better than our own BBQ Master, Chef Richard McPeake.  Hey, we don’t call him ‘Educate of ‘Que’ for nothin’, folks! 

Join Chef for one of his most popular grilling fundamentals classes that will start at the beginning and go through each step of the art of grilling: gas vs. charcoal; how to light a fire; determining proper fire temperatures; testing meat for doneness; why, what and when to marinate; choosing the right meats and fish for grilling; which ground beef makes the best burgers; and cooking on a cedar plank.

Chef Richard will share some of his favorite recipes (with flavors from around the world!) so we can show off our new skills in our own backyards. We’ll learn as he prepares dishes like: Tuscan Porterhouse Roast (now famous!), Planked Pesto Salmon, Grilled Inside-Outside Chicken Cordon Bleu, among others. Ladies and gentlemen … let the grilling begin!

NOTE: This is a demonstration class with no hands-on participation.

NOTE:  Unless otherwise noted, each evening class fee includes one glass of beer/wine with additional beverages available at a nominal cost.
