Kitchen expertise at Foster Harris
If you love to cook and are looking to learn a few new techniques to try with all those great summer veggies, or discover the joys of making your own pasta, a new series of hands-on cooking classes with chef John MacPherson of Foster Harris House are for you.
With MacPherson as guide in Foster Harris House’s new kitchen, you’ll chop, knead and stir while talking about food and enjoying a glass of wine or two. Classes are limited to eight participants and open to all skill levels. Each session concludes with a sit-down meal paired with wines.
The series of Sunday classes, all running from 3 to 6 p.m., starts with a Farm-to-Table primer June 15, using all-local ingredients to make simple and delicious meals, and continues with Rustic Italian Cooking (June 22); Chef’s Tips and Plating Techniques (Aug. 3); and Duck, Duck, Goose (taking the mystery out of foie gras, duck confit and goose liver pate, Aug. 10). Call Foster Harris House at 540-675-3757 to reserve.
