Summer Grilling: The Art of Char

May 26 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

$45 – $55

Nothing quite says “Summer in the Midwest” like the smell of food on the grill! We all know that meat is amazing on the grill, but even veggies can be transformed by the magic of the grill. We’ll be throwing dessert on the grill too! Everything tastes better with a little char! Looking to slim down this summer? Not only is grilling delicious, but it is also a fat free method of cooking! We’ll educate on using a charcoal grill, gas grill, and even a stove top grill pan to prove that anyone can master the grill!  Some of the recipes include: Grilled Caesar Salad in a Parmesan Cup, Grilled Pineapple Soup Shooters, Grilled Pork and Veggie Kabobs, Mojito-Lime Chicken, Charred Sweet Corn Salad with Agave Nectar Vinaigrette, Grilled Pizza, and even Grilled Angel Food Cake with Grilled Fruit (the best dessert I have ever had). There are a precious few nice days for cooking outside in the Midwest. Come celebrate our limited summer weather with some amazing grilled eats!

COVID 19 UPDATE: At this time we are asking all students to wear a mask to class. We will be taking temperatures at the door, as well as providing hand sanitizer 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. 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. 

Our classes are popular and often sell out!  You must cancel your registration at least 7 days in advance to receive a  refund for this class.  There will be a processing fee to cancel your ticket per person no matter when you cancel. You can cancel by calling the school at 309-263-6020 or by emailing us your request to cancel at thecookeryinc@gmail.com.  Tickets canceled the day before or on the day of class will not receive a refund or rain check for any reason (even Covid related).  You may gift or sell your tickets to someone else if you are not able to come but we cannot forward them to another class.

If you have a cardboard gift card with a 3-digit number and want to redeem it for this class, you must call or email to reserve your class spot prior to the class selling out.  If you reserve your spot with a gift card and do not show, you will forfeit the amount owed for the class from your gift card. To cash in your cardboard gift card, contact Amanda at thecookeryinc@gmail.com

If your gift card has a 16-digit code, you can cash it in online when you purchase your ticket.  Codes are case sensitive and require the dash marks to be entered to process the code.
