The Japanese Pantry: Turkey the Japanese Way

Sun | Nov 18, 2018 | 3–7P

Teacher Greg Dunmore

“Turkey and all the trimmings” takes on new meaning in this Japanese-inspired class from chef Greg Dunmore. You’ll learn why yakitori is not just for chicken, how to crisp up that glorious turkey skin, and the secrets to making the crave-worthy “Japanese” (thank you, Portugal/Spain/North Africa!) dish nanban-zuke.
Delicious fall vegetables and a perfect-for-Thanksgiving miso soup will round out the meal we will sit down to share after the cooking is done.
