Are you tired of cooking the same things? Are you ready to add some spice to your life with delicious recipe ideas? If so, join the group Cooking With the CIA to learn from talented Stefan Frandorfer, “Chef Stef,” professionally trained chef and graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, as he shares his cooking secrets.
The next class will be “Under the Sea and to Your Plate,” in which participants will learn how to make baked and pan-seared crab cakes and pan-seared lobster cakes along with sauces and salsas to go with them. Afterward, participants can enjoy the fruits of their labor and sit down for a taste of each item they prepared.
Two sessions will take place Monday, July 8, with a morning class at 11:30 a.m. and an evening class at 7:15 p.m. Classes take place in the kitchen of the Parish Hall at St. Mary’s Episcopal Church, 1 Chestnut St. (at the corner of Routes 9D and 301) in Cold Spring.
Each class is limited due to space restrictions. To reserve a space in the class, visit the group’s website at meetup.com/Cooking-with-the-CIA. The cost for this class will be $30, payable on the day of the class (and is more expensive than the usual fee due to the expense of the ingredients). Each class runs from one and a half to two hours. If enough people are interested in the class, a third session will be added for the afternoon.
