Here’s the class that will de-mystify the cooking of the ole’ holiday bird! Whether you plan to oven roast, grill, smoke, or fry your turkey, Chef Richard McPeake, an amazingly seasoned culinary instructor and chef of 30+ years, will explain absolutely everything you need to know.   Learn the “do’s and don’ts” of cooking the PERFECT (yes, I said it!) turkey, including choosing, thawing, fresh vs. frozen, injecting, brining, roasting techniques, proper cooking temperature, safe internal temperature, proper carving techniques, and so much more.  Ever heard of the “slow-chill thawing method” or a “turkey cannon?”  You will after this class!  And, if that’s not enough, he’ll cover making a turkey stock, and how make an amazing holiday dressing.  Recipes learned in this class include:  Roasted Maple Brined Turkey, Shiitake Mushroom Gravy, Brussels Sprouts in Browned Butter (Soooo good!), Scalloped Cheesy Corn With Bell Peppers, and a creamy Pumpkin Crème Brulee. Whew! After this class, cooking Thanksgiving dinner will be a breeze!  There will be plenty of Tastings in this Limited Hands-On class.
