Better with Bacon

This class is sold out.

You can add yourself to the wait list below, or register for our next available class:

If you’re just cooking bacon for breakfast, you’re missing out.  The deep salty flavor of bacon makes it the perfect meat for meals all day long.

In this class you’ll learn about a variety of bacon, and how to cook it just right every time.  We’ll cover flavor profiles that work with bacon, some expected and some that might surprise you. From artisanal slab bacon to fresh pork belly, we’ll have a variety of cuts to inspire you to get creative with bacon in your own cooking.  Whether you like it crisp and savory or mixed with something sweet, we’ll make recipes to please every bacon lover.

Menu: Goat Cheese Stuffed Bacon Wrapped Dates, Crispy Asian Pork Belly, Fresh Ground Bacon & Beef Burgers, Bacon Cheddar Biscuits with Maple Butter, Bacon Jam, and Salted Caramel Pudding with Bacon Brittle.

Each class concludes with a meal around the table, enjoying what you and your fellow classmates have cooked using your newly acquired skills.... And, yes, wine is served!

This is an immersive, hands-on cooking class. You will be on your feet cooking most of the time so please wear comfortable, closed-toe shoes.
