Class Description: 

Throw on an island shirt (if you dare) and join us as we embark on a ‘spirited’ Caribbean staycation that’s a little bit “Love Boat”, with a twinge of Margaritaville, as Cruise Director, Bruce Campbell takes you on a tour of his favorite ports of call.  Bruce, the ‘Food and Beverage Guy’ with 25+ years in the restaurant business, is the perfect host for our evening of merriment. 

As you set sail toward our first port of call, Bruce will entertain you with tales of his cruisin’ journeys and insight to the region’s various styles of rums and their luscious cocktails as he teaches delicious “island-y” concoctions like Cranberry Mojitos, Pineapple & Ginger Infusion and Pain Killers.

Then, he'll get busy in the kitchen as he shows you how to prepare tonight’s Caribbean-inspired dishes.  He’ll teach essential culinary techniques like knife skills, the proper way to whisk (yes, it’s a thing), and more, as he teaches you to make Caribbean Rice & Peas (a staple with any Caribbean meal), Green Beans with fresh oranges and a flavorful homemade Sherry-Mustard Vinaigrette. For the entrée, Bruce will share his tips to making the perfect Jerk Chicken Skewers. To die for. You’ll end your Caribbean feast with a special pineapple dessert made with dark rum. Yeah, Mon.
