Kitchen Window offers a Thanksgiving cooking class with Italian flair
The typical Thanksgiving dinner is a tradition for a reason, but there's always room to add a little spice and variety. The Kitchen Window can help you do just that with its Italian Thanksgiving class tomorrow at 6 p.m.
Kitchen Window Sarah Burt, of Saucy Burt's food cart, teaches the four-course feast tomorrow night
Sarah Burt, who owns downtown Italian-American food cart Saucy Burt's (and has worked at both Haute Dish and La Belle Vie), will teach class participants how to make a four-course dinner.
Classes at the Kitchen Window are open to all ability levels, says class coordinator Alexia Pettersen. "We get a wide range, between people who don't really know a whole lot and receive hands-on experience working with the recipe, which helps them re-create it at home, to people who are more experienced and just really love to cook." Participants actually prepare all the courses during class. "Throughout the night, they will sit down in intervals here and there and enjoy the fruits of their labor," Pettersen says. "They then take home the recipes so they can re-create that at home."
What's on the menu? Maneghi in thyme-infused brown butter and autumn spices; a green salad with toasted walnuts and prosciutto with apple cider vinaigrette; a turkey and leek risotto with white wine, herbs and turkey confit; and, for dessert, acorn squash baked with apples, candied ginger, pear, and cardamom.
The class costs $70 and runs from 6 to 9:30 p.m at Kitchen Window in Calhoun Square at 3001 Hennepin Avenue. Register online , or by calling 612.824.4417.
