Holiday Boot Camp: Everything But the Bird

Holiday Boot Camp Believe it or not, it’s rapidly approaching: Holiday Season 2016! Is it your turn to host Thanksgiving dinner or the annual neighborhood cocktail party? Don’t panic, our special four-course series will help you win the holidays this year with creative recipes, do-ahead techniques, and tips to take the stress out of holiday cooking and baking. Each class is $130, or $470 if you sign up for the entire series. Classes are held at Rocket Restaurant Resource, 2940 7th Street, Berkeley.

Let’s face it; the best part of Thanksgiving dinner is the sides. Who doesn’t love stuffing and mashed potatoes? Although traditional family recipes are great, this class will inspire you with some new favorite accompaniments to the bird (and we will roast a chicken so we can teach you how to make a delicious cider-herb gravy too). We will also discuss the timeline for do-ahead prep, and strategy for the big day. Learn to prepare recipes such as:

·      Sourdough, Fennel and Sweet Sausage Stuffing

·      Fresh Cranberry Ginger Chutney

·      Cream of Chestnut Soup

·      Sweet and Russet Potato Gratin

·      Gingerbread Cake with Molasses Cream (even if you are a diehard pie traditionalist, we guarantee this one will become a staple in your holiday repertoire!)
