June 1st Celebrate Father’s Day and the Grill! Since the first spark was captured
and tamed by the first people, food has been cooked over fire. While modern technology allows for all kinds of gadgets like air-conditioned workspaces, chilled countertops, and sterile cooking environments, grilling is the only way to capture the goodness of food cooked outdoors. The grill occupies such an important spot in our culture. Learn tips and techniques for grilling meats, seafood and grilled vegetables for dad while enjoying Chef Bakers famous grilled recipes and artisan beers!
November 9th – Get ready for the holidays! Chef Baker will teach you how to
make gifts for your favorite foodie while Bella Brancato from Bella’s Studio will be offering artisan wrapping ideas and Montrio’s Mixologist will show you how to craft holiday cocktails! Ring in the holidays at Montrio Bistro’s final artisan class of 2013.
