ABOUT THE ACTIVITY
Wine and cheese are a naturally delicious combination. They’ve been together for 8,000 years that we know of, and our species has been busy figuring out ways to make both of them more and more delicious all the time. The match of wine and cheese is partly natural and automatic, but by applying ourselves, our tastes, our abilities to understand and choose, we can put together pairings that are many times greater than just the sum of the parts.

This class – limited to 24 students – will taste six major wine and cheese combinations together that express the full range of how these foods match up: by style, by texture, by flavor, geography, even temperament.

Take your cooking chops to the next level with The Refined Cook Culinary Series — cooking class social events where you learn to prepare healthy, gourmet dinners and meet cool folks ... morein the process.

Wife and husband team, Marlene and Jeff, are passionate cooks and dinner hosts extraordinaire. They will show you how to prepare a sophisticated and fun dinner for a small group (you) and let you in on practical tips, shortcuts and plating techniques to elevate everyday meals into extraordinary ones. You can participate as little or as much as you want—think of it as a cooking class where you get to party, or a party where you’ll learn how to cook! In this class, we start with one of our fave apps, crisp cauliflower fritters served with an easy-to-make and flavor-packed tomato dip. Learn to make garam masala from scratch, the primary spice blend we will use in our main course: a yogurt-based Indian Chicken curry Marlene grew up with, typically served in British establishments in Manila with an awesome mango chutney even Major Grey would be proud of! A salad of organic greens cleans the palate and we cap the evening with lip-smacking golden-fried apples with an exotic honey drizzle. 

In this class you will make:

Cauliflower fritters, Indian-style Organic Chicken Curry served with Mango chutney over Basmati rice, Mixed Salad greens , Fried apples drizzled with cardamom and Pistachios honey (Gluten Free)

Many people who are allergic or intolerant to gluten presume that they cannot enjoy authentic Italian food. This is simply not true, and this class will prove it! In this class, we ... morewill put that rumor to rest once and for all, as you will learn how to make pasta that is both delicious and gluten-free! This healthy cooking class begins with a salad made with fresh mozzarella and, of course, Italian wine before you move on to the main course, creating delicious gluten-free pasta dishes!
This is one of the most intriguing food classes in Boston you will ever find! Not only do you have the opportunity to learn directly from Chef Walker’s experiences and travels, you ... morewill literally learn how to take apart an entire animal!

While most butchering classes will only teach you how to obtain certain cuts of meat, in Chef Walker’s class, absolutely nothing goes to waste. You work with every part of the animal, from head to tail, learning the best preparation methods for each and every cut of meat you obtain.

The whole butchery not only promotes a greater respect for the animal you are utilizing, it encourages creativity, as you will be working with cuts of meat that may not be familiar to you! In this class, Chef Walker brings people together for incredible moments of education mixed with information and of course, fun.
