Craigie's Road Less Traveled CLass announced: may 6th
When you visit Craigie on Main, do you salivate over the bone marrow? Wonder how we cook it to meat-buttery perfection? Ask for "funky" stuff on your tasting menus? Find yourself wishing you could cook some of this stuff at home?
If this rings a bell, we have the perfect class for you!!! On Saturday, May 6, Chef Tony Maws will teach a class on food and drink from "The Road Less Traveled". He will demonstrate how delicious the lesser-known parts of animals can be, and he'll teach you how to prepare and cook them. Tongue, liver, bone marrow, and oxtail will all be covered in our hands-on cooking class. Of course, it will not just be new food dishes that you encounter on "The Road Less Traveled". As an added bonus, Craigie on Main Wine Guru Carl York will introduce you to some of the funkier wines out there, many of which are, indeed, quite literally, reached only by a road less travelled.
Included in this roll-up-your-sleeves learning experience will be a offally-good Four-Course Lunch with wine pairings included.
A big part of true sustainability comes from not wasting anything and using all parts of everything we grow. It's a practice many don't follow today, but one to which we at Craigie are committed. ( And, just by the way, it's the same one that Grandmothers have practiced for centuries.) British Chef Fergus Henderson (who ought to know) summed it up well. "Once you knock an animal on the head, it is only polite to eat the whole animal."
