STRATFORD, ON, April 9, 2013 /CNW/ - Savour Stratford presents The GE Café Chefs Series with great Ontario chefs in Stratford. Stratford Chefs School graduate Ryan Crawford, Gastrohomestead, Niagara returns to Stratford Sunday, April 14 with lamb dishes to welcome spring.
Engaging and fun, here's a chance to sharpen your culinary techniques as chefs take you into the kitchen and guide you through a hands-on class. Combine your love of food, the social interaction with other food lovers of wine and great conversation with Ontario's leading chefs. With a focus on the importance of sustainability and animal husbandry, Chef Ryan uses the entire lamb in several preparations during the 3-hour class. The 4-course menu features vineyard raised lamb carpaccio, sausage, pickled tongue, chops and marinated leg and is paired with wines from Niagara's acclaimed Tawse Winery.
The GE Café Chefs Series features top chefs from Stratford, Toronto, Waterloo, Cambridge and Niagara on selected Sundays through until June. Each chef brings their own individual philosophy, skills and creative approaches - with some inside tips that will impress your circle of family and friends - to each session. Focusing on the hands-on, you will easily transfer the experiences to your own kitchen and take the recipes home with you. Think of it as tasty homework!
Classes are $75 per person (+ HST), or even better, register for three classes for $210 (+HST) and really build up a cooking portfolio. Prices including beverages, food and take home recipes. We can't think of a better way to prepare for the upcoming summer bounty of local produce. Great menus really need great skills!
Classes are held at the Local Community Food Centre, 612 Erie Street, Stratford from 11:00am - 2:00pm. For more information, menus and to reserve your place at the table go to www.visitstratford.ca/gechefs .
