Clean Eating 101 

Paleo, Keto, Whole30...What does it all mean?!?! It’s actually all quite simple when we focus on the food we eat. Chef Ross will help demystify all of the hype with the latest trends in eating “habits”, “diets” or “lifestyles.”What it really boils down to is actually finding, preparing and cooking real food. Fresh fruits, vegetables and clean proteins.

Fool Proof Risotto 

Chef Purple shares some tips while making Risotto that will help you avoid the epic Risotto fail...gummy Risotto! Like so many great dishes, Risotto is a labor of love. It’s a commitment...not as big as marriage...but it’s this commitment that will make or break your Risotto. Patience is the most important piece of the puzzle! The reason so many people end up with a gummy Risotto is because they lose patience...they add the liquid too quickly...it’s the intermittent addition of the broth that releases the starch from the rice and the result is creamy Risotto!

Jan. 22nd - (5:30-8:30pm)
