Gastro-Pub Night : Thursday, May 14th 7:00 PM

Gastro-pubs are the best of both worlds: bar food and high-quality dining

experiences. We’re going to show you the ins and outs of elevating bar food into fine

dining. We’ll start off with 100% Angus beef sliders on pretzel buns, then up is fried

chicken and honey butter sliders on biscuits, and potato croquettes stuffed with

asiago cheese and prosciutto. Bring your favorite beer or wine to have in between

passion fruit bubble shots, blending in the culinary science movement known as

molecular gastronomy. Alcohol, bar food, what could possibly be better?

Spring Rolls and Dumplings; a complete guide : Friday, May 22nd 7:00 PM

This is your opportunity to work with guest chef Graciel Caces. Graciel is a 2 time James Beard nominee

food stylist. She has worked along side Bobby Flay, Buddy Valastro and Rachel Ray to   Guest Chef Series

name a few. This is your chance to work along side a renowned chef in a small class setting.  

You will hand make pork and chicken dumplings, vegetable spring rolls and a banana spring

roll for dessert just to name a few.

Him versus Her: Thursday, May 28th 7:00PM

The endless struggle: what to make for dinner? Your wife is sick of red meat and

your husband’s next bite of salmon over mixed greens will surely kill him. You love

each other, but you just crave different things. Well, we’re bringing this ultimate

culinary battle to our kitchens: Girl Food versus Guy Food. We’ll start off gender-

neutral, combining the best of both worlds: Chicken Caesar salad quesadillas! For

the men we’ll be making a pan-seared shortrib steak with a pancetta crust and killer

roasted garlic potatoes with bacon bits. For the ladies? A grilled mahi mahi taco with

a light slaw, and, more importantly, decadent chocolate mousse. Who will win? Who

cares? With food this good, nobody will be complaining!

Carnival Food Happy Hour : Thursday, June 4th 5:00 PM

It’s that time of year! Your kids are begging to go to the carnival, ride the ferris

wheel, and play enough games to have an entire stuffed animal zoo in their bed. You

don’t mind though, because secretly, you’re in it for the food. Nothing tastes better

than that deep-fried, crispy goodness that reminds you of your childhood. Let’s

recreate those memories of corn dogs, fried dough, deep-fried Twinkies and Oreos,

cheesy nachos on homemade tortilla chips, and soft pretzels the size of your head.

Can’t you just hear that boardwalk breeze and laughter?

Surf and Turf : Thursday, June 11th 7:00 PM

The beach is great, but so is the country. No matter where you choose to spend your

summer, you will love combining surf and turf foods. First off is a pan-seared

shortrib steak with Sriracha-honey sauce. Continuing the sweet-savory-spicy theme

will be perfectly seared scallops in a sweet chili lime sauce. Follow it all up with

lobster mac and cheese topped with bacon crumble for the perfect pairing of land

and sea.

Thirsty Thursday (a Night of Wine pairings) Thursday, June 18th 7:00 PM

Cinch will provide the wines for you to taste as we pair wines with artisanal cheeses, Spanish cured hams, (they’re really

the best hams) We’ll then make a classic soufflé and finish with crepes suzette . This

will be an educational night with fabulous food.

Beat the Heat Happy Hour Class: Friday, July 10th 5:00 PM

It’s HOT. The last thing you want to do right now is turn on your oven. So don’t.

Come join us for some light, oven-free summer food that will appease both your

bikini body and your AC bill. How about a fajita steak salad with roasted corn and

lime vinaigrette?  Grilled romaine Caesar salad.  Pan seared cod with pineapple salsa,

a classic summer gazpacho. Bring your own wine, beer, or favorite summer mixed

drink. There’s nothing wrong with that!

Little Italy (AGES 11-15) WEDNESDAY JULY 15TH 4:00 PM

School was out weeks ago, camp ends at 3, your kids are boooooored with a capital

B. There’s NOTHING to do. Give them the chance to travel the world this summer!

Italy’s fantastic cuisine is the perfect place to start. Homemade ravioli, lasagna, and

caramel gelato? They’ll be talking about this for weeks. Drop your 11-15 year old off

with us, and fight off those summer blahs.

Fiesta! (Ages 11-15) WEDNESDAY, JULY 29TH 4:00 PM

That Italian class was SO MUCH FUN, we just can’t help extending the party! Let’s fly

on over to Mexico and have a little fiesta. We’ll explore the favorites: chicken and

cheese quesadillas, pork enchiladas, and churros! Your kids will be blown away by

how much fun cooking can be, and how talented their tastebuds are.

Hors d’ oeuvre and Entertaining : Thursday July 30th 7:00 PM

With this selection of delectable bites, you are sure to capture the hearts and minds

of your family and friends.  Whether you’re hosting an intimate cocktail party or a

dinner for 20, these tiny dishes will bring smiles and raves. You’ll learn to prepare

from simple, yet authentic salsas and guacamole to sophisticated pork belly with candied bacon and cherry reduction. Let’s not forget a classic bite size fish taco.
