What you'll do
Learn to cook delicious and seasonal cuisine with a top chef right in Chicago. Chef Jared will be your local food guide and teach you how to bring your cooking to the next level. We'll start by sourcing ingredients to learn how to understand what's fresh and seasonal. We'll then create a delicious meal in our home kitchen. Make dishes such as fresh vegetable gnocchi, New England oyster shooters, local meat and fish and much much more. Every lesson is hand crafted specifically for what your dietary needs are and what the farmers brought in that day. After learning the basics, Chef Jared will help you master the techniques behind the full meal. Free yourself from traditional recipes by learning the science behind techniques. With your new culinary skills, you'll be the envy of your friends when hosting dinner parties! We accommodate all dietary restrictions -- just let us know! If you have a specific allergy or if you're a vegan, we'll craft a unique experience. Just make sure you mention it to us- we can't accommodate you if we don't know your restrictions ahead of time. Get ready to eat and make some delicious local food! Feel free to bring something stronger if you prefer and you're over 21.
