Family Night: Sheet Pan Chicken Thighs with Roasted Root Vegetables

November 27, 2022
Sunday, November 27th 5:00PM - 7:30PM | $80 / 2 seats

Family Night Hands-On Class

Sheet-pan recipes are popular for good reason—minimal prep and easy cleanup! You'll be delighted to learn how the combination of protein, vegetables, and starch turns into a fabulous, complete dish. Chicken thighs are one of our favorites for sheet pan meals because they remain moist and flavor all other ingredients on the pan. An overnight marinade makes this dish even more delicious. Mary Cooney's menu includes: Sheet Pan Chicken Thighs With Roasted Root Vegetables, Angel Hair Pasta With Garlic and Olive Oil, Green Salad With Homemade Buttermilk Ranch Dressing, and Sheet Pan Chocolate Cake With Italian Meringue Buttercream Icing. Registration is for two people.

Homemade Spaghetti With Three Classic Sauces

December 09, 2022
Rescheduled to Friday, December 09th 6:00PM - 8:00PM | $90
(Previously: Monday, October 24th 2022 6:00PM - 8:00PM)

Hands-On Class

Pasta should be worthy of its sauce and vice-versa, so we're making Homemade Fresh Spaghetti for three delicious sauces. Mary Cooney will guide you through making fresh pasta dough for spaghetti. The three sauces don't require a lot of ingredients, but you'll discover how using high-quality ingredients and certain cooking techniques result in incredible dishes. Cacio e Pepe means 'cheese and pepper', and when perfectly executed is mouthwateringly good. Amatriciana is a classic Italian favorite with a rich tomato sauce made with smoky guanciale, a hint of chili (flakes), and freshly grated Pecorino Romano. Al Limone is luscious and generously cheesy, but the brightness of fresh lemon juice and zest makes this dish light and fresh.
