Events y mas
Well, Greg and I have some things planned for the near future that is going to be kind of cool...
Next week, perhaps on Monday we are going to be giving a cooking class for a culinary program sponsored by Second Harvest Food Bank and the Knox Area Ministries---here is a copy of the press release
For Immediate Release (Knoxville):
On July 17th, Chef Michael Hayes of RestaurantEdge.com, accompanied by Chef Gregory Gross will conduct a culinary art exhibition for the students of the Second Harvest Culinary Classes at Knox Area Ministries with Chef Allen Trent in Knoxville, TN.
The program, taught by Chef Trent, instructs low-income families in the Knoxville area in the basics of culinary arts to help them become employable in the industry. Throughout the 16-week program, the students touch base on all of the basics necessary to be able to work in a functioning kitchen which includes a four week internship in a catering kitchen and a ServSafe Certification.
Chef Hayes and Chef Gross will instruct the students in a hands-on demonstration on the differences between marinating, brining and the use of rubs on proteins, the “how’s” and “why’s” of roasting meats, and basic sauce techniques. This day long event will be followed by a question and answer session with all three chefs.
RestaurantEdge.com is constantly searching for avenues to help the less fortunate, both inside and outside of the foodservice industry. From the free cooking classes for low-income families offered by Chef Hayes to our Katrina Hurricane Relief Fund as well as hosting past, present and future charitable projects.
Also, I have been working on getting a sushi class together with some members of Vickie's family and some of the women from my bank, I just don't have a place large enough to host the class yet...will keep you informed.
