Cooking classes at The Corner Pantry – the perfect holiday gift

0 Written by: | Wednesday, Nov 26, 2014 2:05pm

IMG_8854-300x296

I’ve written about The Corner Pantry before. They opened in February 2014 and have been a hit in their North Baltimore neighborhood ever since. It’s a great spot for breakfast, lunch, take out, coffee and more. Chef Neill Howard and his wife Emily have created such a lovely little place – their Friday fish + chips is a lot of fun!

The Corner Pantry offers a great series of monthly cooking classes on Wednesday nights. The topics include knife skills, soups, Indian cuisine and more. These classes are fun and affordable and would make great holiday gifts! (I know I’m taking a few!)

JAN 15 • SOUPS & STEWS

Learn about our soups and stews, so popular for their flavor, simplicity and diet conscious ingredients.

FEB 19 • KNIFE SKILLS

Due to popular demand: learn how the professional chef chops, dices, and juliennes so fast without losing a finger. (Details on knife sharpening to come)

MAR 19 • ASIAN & INDIAN FLAVOR

Neill will share his favorite bold flavors of these regions and how to incorporate them into your everyday cooking.

APR 16 • BITES

Back by popular demand: entertain this Spring & Summer with quick and easy one bite appetizers and desserts sure to impress your guests.

MAY 21 • FISH

Everyone loves to eat fish, but cooking it can be difficult. Neill will demonstrate how to prepare delicious summer seafood.

JUNE 18 • QUICK SUMMER DINNERS

Summer evenings are best spent outdoors, not in the kitchen. Learn some easy, flavorful meals the whole family will enjoy.

JULY 9 • GRILLING

It’s never too late to learn how to grill. From meats to vegetables, you will be confident over the coals at the next summer BBQ.

$35 per class, $30 for 4 classes or more

(Classes are approx 1-1.5hrs in length beginning at 7:30pm. You may bring your own alcohol. Students will enjoy a taste of each dish and will take recipes home. Minimum of 4 people per class. No refunds unless class is cancelled by The Corner Pantry)
