Boy do I wish I had a Sur La Table around these parts like the one I visit in NJ with their full teaching kitchen, but I have to be sated with taking technique classes/demonstrations at Williams Sonoma. They just sent out the schedule yesterday and this is what is on their “Menu”*
SUNDAY, JUNE 1 All-American Backyard Party
Everything tastes better when it’s cooked out back. We’ll help you get ready for the season of outdoor eating. You’ll learn how to grill juicy burgers, classic barbecue chicken and other delicious foods that are sure to make your backyard barbecue the hit of the block.
SUNDAY, JUNE 8 Grilling: Favorite Summer Sides
Burgers, franks and chicken may get top billing, but we’ll show you how to grill veggies that’ll steal the show. Learn simple ways to get the most flavor out of summer produce as we demonstrate some of our favorite summer sides from the grill and from the garden.
SUNDAY, JUNE 29 Extreme Ice Cream
Learn a few basics, and they’ll all be screaming for ice cream! We’ll show you how to make your own ice cream at home that you can enjoy all summer long. You’ll learn how to take basic ice cream flavors and transform them into delicious, decadent, “extreme” ice cream flavors that are uniquely yours.
SUNDAY, JULY 13 Pizza
Not all pizza comes in a box. We’ll show you how to make a pie from scratch in the kitchen and on the grill and how to get family and friends in on the fun. You’ll learn how to make a pizza dough in minutes, how to bake it to perfection and how to wow them with toppings.
SUNDAY, JULY 27 Summer Fruits & Vegetables
Make the most of summer’s bounty as we guide you through our fruit and vegetable garden. Learn the basics of fruit and vegetable handling and storage, and take away exciting recipes that showcase our summer produce.
