Cooking Class Update!

Some of the greatest memories of my time at the Black Sheep Bistro was the cooking classes we offered on Saturdays. Hours spent just destroying my kitchen, then sitting down and eating everything we made, getting to know our customers and their friends from a whole new perspective was beyond words and emotions.

Through the Black Sheep Cooking Club, we started offering our cooking classes in January and from my experience they surpass what I was able to do at the restaurant. Why? Well let's just say most people were somewhat intimidated by being in a professional kitchen. Not that they didn't like it, they did, but most were a little apprehensive about diving in and giving it all they got. Not only that but I kind of got the impression that, "yeah I can do that here, in a kitchen like this, but I couldn't do this at home." That is not what we're finding now that we're doing the classes in your homes. Most of the classes are set up to be more of a "participation party" where some cook and some are served the results. Not only do we find most everyone is not only excited to participate, sometimes it's a round robin as to who gets to cook and who's being served!

We've just begun!

We are just beginning to get samples of the classes up on the Black Sheep Cooking Club website in both picture and video form. Take a moment and check them out and then use this Contact Form if you'd like to book your own class with us.

Long time customer Dave Plotkin and family!

Dave loved the Roli Roti truck in San Francisco so much he'd fly his family up there for Porchetta sandwiches. He finally decided to design his own rotisserie and signed us up for Porchetta class!

You can see the fun on our You Tube Channel. Here's some pictures;

Sooo good and way too much family fun!

Here's a few samples of currently available classes!

                                                                                       (the ultimate in grilling!)

And I love giving them the bill at the end of the night, and watch as they survey all the did, all they ate and they calculate how may were served what, and they say, "is that all, and you did the dishes too?"

I never dreamed not owning a restaurant would be so satisfying and fun!
