In this hands-on class, you’re going to learn how to cook over an open fire. But what you’ll really learn are the primal cooking skills that will make you a better cook in your daily life.
Together we'll prepare a Sunday brunch entirely on an open fire. We'll make yeast-risen waffles; apple-cornmeal pancakes with real maple syrup; apple compote; coal-seared steak; grilled eggs and doughnuts.
No previous experience is necessary and advanced fire cooking students will also learn something new.
Class is held at the Old Stone House on Fifth Ave and 3rd Street in Park Slope!
