In this whole hog butchery class, LON's Executive Chef Jeremy Pacheco and his culinary team will take portions of a whole hog and describe the differences of cuts, where they come from, how to use them, and recipes exemplifying the age-old craft of butchery. As one of the oldest cooking techniques, this class will cover everything from grilling and smoking to curing, charcuterie, and salumi, in addition to tastings throughout class. Saturday, February 13, 2016 from 12-2pm: The lover's grill. Learn how to prepare a meal on the grill for that special someone at this Valentine's-themed cooking class. Featured dishes will include Chateaubriand, lobster, grilled bruschetta and grilled oysters, in addition to some decadent sweets to enjoy throughout the class. Saturday, March 12, 2016 from 12-2pm: Eating whole grains is an integral part of a healthy lifestyle, and specialty supermarkets are stocking their shelves with a greater variety than ever before. In this class, enjoy the healthier side of food as LON's chefs provide an overview of some of the most popular grains, including quinoa and bulgur wheat, millet farro, and rice, in addition to teaching various cooking methods, techniques, recipes and benefits of these grains. Saturday, April 9, 2016 from 12-2pm: The summer heat has a tendency to affect one's appetite, and this class will demonstrate how to counteract that with light and refreshing summer dishes. From salads, granitas and gazpacho, to chilled appetizers and entrees, guests will leave this class prepared for their next summer gathering.
