Hand’s On Class,  The Complete EGG Experience with Chef Amanda Egidio
How to cook a complete meal from start to finish on your Big Green Egg
Tuesday, 20 September, 6:00pm-8:30pm

Have you been struggling with how to cook your whole meal on your EGG? Then this is the perfect class for you! We will break up into small teams and each team will draw a card from a hat. On that card is a menu for a complete meal. Each team will cook the meal from start to finish and each team gets to cook on their own team EGG.

An example meal might be Steak with grilled romaine salad and corn, or shrimp fajitas, including tortillas and grilled peppers.

After the work, each team will present their dinner to the others and explain the ins and outs of cooking that particular meal on the EGG. Then everyone will enjoy the dinners family style!

Come join us for a wonderful evening of food and fun!
