Beef, Bacon, Bourbon, Beer!

June 18 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm


Sold out!  Check out our other date in August for the same class!

Calling all carnivores! Adult Tickets only!

This class is loaded with four of the best things in life: Beef, Bacon, Bourbon and Beer! While we all love a good Bacon Burger with a cold beer on the side, this iconic combo has much more potential to make dishes that fit all kinds of tastes and budgets. Pilsner, Lager, Stout…which one do you use? In this class we’ll talk extensively about different beers, and how to pair them or use them with the dish you’re making. We’ll cook with a little bourbon as well.  The same goes for the meat! Did you know that a cow provides over 60 cuts of meat? We’ll show several cuts and what kind of dishes to use them in as well. We’re making hearty meals that embrace these ingredients and show how diverse they can be! We’ll make dishes such as: Beef, Bacon, and Beer Chili, Bacon Cheeseburger Soup, BLT Pasta Salad, Bourbon Bacon Jam, Beef Filet with Ginger Shiitake Glaze,  Beefy Meatloaf, Beer Cheese Soup, and even some Bread Pudding with Bourbon Sauce and Fudgy Guinness Brownies for Dessert! If you love meat and bourbon and beer (and who doesn’t?) then this is the class for you!

COVID 19 UPDATE: At this time we are no longer asking all students to wear a mask to class. If you have been vaccinated, you may choose to wear one, or not.  You of course, may wear a mask if you choose. We will be providing hand sanitizer at the door upon your arrival. If you have any symptoms, have been around someone with symptoms, or have traveled outside the country recently we are asking that you please stay home. You may call to cancel your ticket with a two day or more notice, and we will issue a credit to be used on a future class.  No refunds. Thank you for supporting us during this challenging time! We will do our best to make our classes as educational and fun as ever.  Now that our county has moved to Tier 1, we can all enjoy our meal under The Cookery roof again! However, if you feel more comfortable taking all of our delicious foods home in a box, you can do that as well!  You will get a portion of each dish!

Please indicate the age of your child (children) for a child’s class in the comment sections so we can make sure that their recipes are age appropriate. Class ending times may vary. Please wear closed-toed shoes and wear your hair up off your shoulders.  Bring your favorite knife and a beverage to drink if you wish. We will provide knives if you do not have them.  We will also provide aprons. We will have filtered water to drink. Byob.
