We’re putting the finishing touches on our June schedule, but here’s a sneak peek of what we have coming up. Don’t forget to grab your seats here Monday, May 8th at 2pm.
When you’re working in a fast-paced kitchen, communication is key. When the chef gives out directions, there’s no time for conversation. You simply respond with, “Heard, Chef!” In this COOK series, we’ll be bringing you all of the wonderful, tips, tricks, and secrets that we’ve heard during our classes. This month, we’ve been rounding up our favorite tips from our talented chefs and we’d like to pass on the wisdom! Take a look at the top five tips we’ve learned from our visiting chefs.
Shayna Marmar, of Honeypie Cooking, returned to the COOK kitchen this week for another exciting and informative kids class! This time, the theme was Rock n’ Roll and we did just that! Shayna walked us through the process of rolling your own sushi, summer rolls, burritos, and crepes. At the end of class, we all got to take home what we made and we even had some more ideas for recipes of our own! Take a look at what we were up to.
Chef Michael Vincent Ferreri of Res Ipsa stopped in this week to deliver a fantastic five-course Sicilian meal that had us all practically licking our plates! Take a look at what he prepared.
We’ve just added a ton of new cookbooks to our shelves so if you’re searching for some culinary inspiration, are shopping for a loved one, or just want to browse, stop in to COOK. Take a look at some of the latest cookbooks to join our shelves!
The Scarpetta team came in this week and stunned us with a delicious, 6-course Italian meal. Chef Jorge Espinoza talked us through everything from perfectly cooking an octopus to making the most delicious pasta sauces. Take a look at what they cooked up!
If you’re searching for a few small touches to add to your home, check out our Avva Keeper and Avva Pinch Pour bowls from Teroforma! These items are equally as versatile as they are stylish and you can find them both in the COOK pantry.
The Philadelphia farm and food festival is just a few days away so get your tickets if you haven’t already! The event, which takes place at the Pennsylvania Convention center on Saturday, April 8th, is drawing in talented farmers and chefs from around the region- including many of our COOK regulars! These dedicated craftsmen are going to be doing cooking demonstrations as well as continuing the conversation surrounding sustainable farming.
We were joined, once again, this week by the fantastic duo, George Sabatino and Heather Thomason for an informative, food-filled evening at COOK! Heather Thomason, the mind behind Primal Supply Meats, brought in her best cuts of meat to walk us through the butchery process while George Sabatino of Aldine prepared a wonderful 5-course meal. Take a look at what these two prepared for us!
