Under Pressure!
Gizmo: pressure cooker, rice cooker

Stuffed endive goat cheese canoes, Chinese Five-spice Pork Shoulder with leeks served over red rice, Roasted organic squash with sage butter sauce, Mango flambé (gluten-free)

Freddie and David may have had a different kind of pressure in mind, but we agree that we can give love, especially when we taste the results! The East-West flavor fusion came to fruition for Marlene and Jeff’s anniversary dinner. We featured a house favorite, pork shoulder, pressure-cooked to tenderness with leeks and Chinese spices, and paired it with the New England flavors of sweet roasted squash and sage. We’re replicating the menu because we love it, and know you will too. Capping the meal on either end are Stuffed endive goat cheese canoes and Mango flambé for starter and dessert.

Set It and Forget It
Gizmo: rotisserie

Three- Cheese Fig pizza, Spice-rubbed rotisserie Organic Chicken with Steamed broccoli, Pecan Date balls served with Mint tea

On any lazy day, we just might pick up a plump whole organic chicken from our favorite grocery, give it a nice spice rub, pop it in the rotisserie then set it and forget it! And that's exactly what we're doing in class. With some time to kill, we’ll get fancy and roll out home-made dough to make an elegant three-cheese pizza of organic figs as a starter-- an absolute favorite with friends. Maximizing broccoli’s phytonutrients, we’re steaming it to accompany our juicy rotisserie chicken. Pecan Date balls are a sweet finish served with refreshing mint tea.

Craving the rich foods of a traditional French Bistro but can’t make the trip across the pond? Chef Joe Maglio, the former Saucier Chef at Las Vegas’ Palace Court, takes you on a fun-filled ... morejourney of the menu of a classic French Bistro without ever leaving downtown Boston. 

You’ll start your Selfup cooking experience with the traditional Escargot de Bourguignonne - snails sauteed with a homemade compound butter so that the tender, clean flavor of the snails weaves into the savory bite of garlic butter, the tang of perfectly selected white wine, and the gentle snap of shallots. To elevate it further, you’ll work your sinfully rich snails into a puff pastry, complete with a richly complex gorgonzola cream sauce. 

Your next course - the Filet au Poivre - is certain to spoil your taste buds with a spicy demi glace made from the filet drippings, Brandy, and green peppercorns. A prime cut of meat expertly paired with a sauce so delicious you’re sure to be sopping it up with a baguette makes an impeccable main course. 

The only dish that could follow a meal like this is the classic Bananas Foster. You’ll learn how to recreate this flambeed tableside classic in your own kitchen as you caramelize bananas until their natural sugars crystalize, and then are served warm over vanilla ice cream. 

This cooking class is a perfect romantic night out for couples, or fun adventure for friends or coworkers. After your au revoir, you’ll be able to recreate these French Bistro classics in your own kitchen.
