The Field Kitchen Holiday Boot Camp: Everything But the Bird

Date/Time
11/05/2016
11:00 am – 2:30 pm


Believe it or not, its rapidly approaching: Holiday Season 2016! Is it your turn to host Thanksgiving dinner or the annual neighborhood cocktail party? Dont panic, our special four-course series will help you win the holidays this year with creative recipes, do-ahead techniques, and tips to take the stress out of holiday cooking and baking. Each class is $130, or $470 if you sign up for the entire series.

Lets face it; the best part of Thanksgiving dinner is the sides. Who doesnt love stuffing and mashed potatoes? Although traditional family recipes are great, this class will inspire you with some new favorite accompaniments to the bird (and we will roast a chicken so we can teach you how to make a delicious cider-herb gravy too). We will also discuss the timeline for do-ahead prep, and strategy for the big day. Learn to prepare recipes such as:

Sourdough, Fennel and Sweet Sausage Stuffing
Fresh Cranberry Ginger Chutney
Cream of Chestnut Soup
Sweet and Russet Potato Gratin
Gingerbread Cake with Molasses Cream (even if you are a diehard pie traditionalist, we guarantee this one will become a staple in your holiday repertoire!)

Feel free to bring wine or beer to enjoy with the meal.
