What you'll do
House Rules, Knife Safety & Produce Side by Side Comparison. What's on offer and where to find it? This will be a quick Q&A on what's available in the local area. (20 mile rad.) Lets get cooking! we will start at the beginning with a simple aperitif and work through the cooking of a four course dinner. We will cover Preparation, Timing & proper safe handling of the food. (Sample Menu) Aperitif: 1/ Asparagus veloute. Starter: 2/ Mushrooms on toast. Provencal style, taken from our breakfast menu, but great at anytime. Entree: 3/ Breast of Joyce Farms Chicken. Served with Pesto crushed New Potatoes & New seasons Sprouting Broccoli. Wild Mushroom and Garlic Pan Sauce. Dessert: 4/ Mixed Berry sorbet. (depending on the seasonal availability) Once we are done cooking, it'll be time to sit down and enjoy all your hard work with a glass of wine from our super local friends at Long Leaf Vineyards. Or perhaps a beer from one of the many breweries located in Asheville. A great way to spend an evening making fabulous food with new friends!
I have been in the catering trade for over 26 years and in that time I have worked in many different kitchens, hotels and restaurants. Unfortunately, the corporate regime of cooking has stunted the real basics of food production and giving back to the local community of growers, producers and lovers of real food. So many “high end” food houses promote real food but still use the quick and easy methods to make a quick buck. This AirBnB Experience is a chance to hear, see and most importantly taste what’s being grown in our area. An opportunity to eat & learn with a real Gastro Chef!
Wine & Beer (This will be consumed in moderation and only available to those 21 and over. ID will be required and requested)
