Time to Channel Your Inner (or Wannabe) Chef!
At the Leaning Ladder, we specialize in selling premium olive oils and vinegars. We love showing our customers the many different ways to use and mix and match our products. And one of the ways we do this in a fun and educating forum is through our monthly cooking classes.
If you haven’t experienced one of our classes, now is the time! The holidays are over, and winter has set in for the next month or two. It’s time to gather your spouse or your friends and learn something new!
Here’s the 4-11 on our classes:
Size — We have intentionally designed our classes to be an interactive and intimate experience for our participants. With this in mind, we limit our classes to a maximum of 12, with a minimum of 8. Participants are seated around our kitchen “island,” allowing them to ask questions of our guest chef and see what he/she is doing up close and personal.
BYOK? (Bring Your Own Knife) — The majority of our cooking classes are instructional verses hands-on. Sometimes, our chefs conduct hands on classes, but all cooking utensils will be provided- no need to bring your own knife.
BYOB? (Bring Your Own Beverage) — Yes! Cooking class guests are invited to bring their beverage of choice. We also have a great selection of wines to purchase that will pair beautifully with that night’s culinary creations. Wine can be purchased at the time of the class, and we even provide the wine glasses!
Chefs — Currently, we have four guest chefs who lead our classes: Personal chef Alan Peterson, Century House Chef Dan Porubiansky, Edible Garden Chef at the Atlanta Botanical Garden Chef Megan McCarthy and cooking contest winner and blogger, Chef Melissa Pelkey—Hass. See here for complete chef bios and credentials.
Cost — The cost of the classes vary with each class. Typically, classes are $35-$50 per person. Participants enjoy the fruits of the chefs’ labor with each class as well as receive copies of every recipe prepared during that class.
Reservations — We do request reservations for our classes. Payment will be taken at the time of the reservation. If you need to cancel, we will provide credit for a future class.
In addition to our scheduled classes, we can schedule a special night for just you and your friends. Perfect for a Girls Night Out, Bachelorette Party or Couples’ date night.
Upcoming classes include “Not Your Mama’s Pot Pie” on January 22 and “By the Sea Redux” on February 5.
Consider this your personal invitation to learn a new recipe and most importantly, have a fun night out!
We look forward to seeing you soon!
