Summer Favorites and Picnic Pleasures

July 2, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm

$40 – $55

Sold out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Summer holds some of our most beloved memories. A Fourth of July Cookout, Memorial Day Cookout, Father’s Day Cookout, Uncle John’s Birthday Cookout…there’s a common theme here. It’s just simply magic to cook outside over a hot grill on a warm summer day, cold beer in hand. It dates back to our roots of cooking over fires, and there’s something in the human spirit that can’t get enough. We’re suckers for a good picnic ourselves, and thought we’d throw one at the Cookery with all the right fixins’.  We’ll make dishes such as  Buttermilk Fried Chicken, Dill Potato Salad, Pineapple Pretzel Salad, Smoky Barbecue Baked Beans, Grilled PB&J Paninis, Chicken Fried Steak Biscuit Sandwiches,  Sweet and Spicy Chipotle Slaw, a dynamite Tex-Mex Burger with the Perfect French Fry, and a Chocolate and Porter Shake to wash it all down! Armed with these recipes, your food will be the center of attention at every summer potluck and party you attend!

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. You can bring adult beverages if you’d like. We will provide knives if you do not have them.  We will also provide aprons. We will have filtered water to drink.
