Come to an Evening of Classy Cooking

Allen and PetersenWant to play Iron Chef with me?

I thought so--because I have a great treat to give away this week.

A year or so ago I wrote about two cooking classes I attended where I learned how to cook Indian and Thai food (though not together, talk about your fusion cuisine!) The Thai night was especially great, with six or seven other students I learned how to make spring rolls and banana-wrapped halibut and more tasty food that we could eat (and they let us eat everything we fixed). I went home with recipes, a stuffed stomach and the thrill of learning lots of things that made my family very, very happy.

Well how would you like to go too? Allen and Peterson Cooking and Appliance Center is offering one of you a chance to attend one of their cooking classes with me next week where we'll be doing some Italian grilling. Yes indeed, a gorgeous, full Italian meal made entirely on the grill including:

  • Grilled Pizza with Tomatoes and Arugula
  • Tuscan-Style Porterhouse for Two (Bistecca alla Fiorentina)
  • Grilled Radicchio and Endive Salad
  • Grilled Seasonal Fruit with Amaretto Sauce
  • Sample Recipe: Grilled Antipasto with Caper Sauce
Have I got you drooling yet? Summer is all about easy ways to cook and grilling is a perfect way to learn the nuances of Italian food. You can read more about it here at the AP Home site. I'll be writing more about what I learn and sharing all sorts of great tips.

It will be held on July 15th from 6-9pm at the Allen and Petersen Viking Cooking School kitchen (make sure you have that date available) and if you're up for a fun night out I'd love to have you join me. I'll be taking entries all week long until Sunday and will post the winner next Monday morning. Good luck and good eating!

Here's how to win:

Before 12 am Sunday morning go to the giveaway entry form on this page and enter your name and email. I will pick one of the names at random, contact the winner via their email and publish the winner's first name and home town in next Tuesday's post. See the bottom of the entry form for more details.

This giveaway is open to all Anchorage residents. Good luck!
