Still have a few last-minute Christmas gifts to pick up for the food nerds in your life? Then we have the perfect solution. The January schedule of classes at COOK is going live at 2pm today, but because you’re a Foobooz fan, you’re getting to check out the goods a couple hours early.
And January is going to be a good month, too, with lots of cool stuff to choose from. Between Peter Woolsey doing classic French bistro fare, a bread making class with Jonathan Petruce and two chances at hanging out with local Top Chefs (Jason Cichonski and Jen Carroll, each doing a one-night-only class at the end of the month), how can you go wrong? Oh, and if you miss out on those two Top Chef classes (or if you’re looking for something a bit more in-your-face), January’s Foobooz Open Stove night features cooks from both of Top Chef winner Kevin Sbraga‘s restaurants–Aaron Gottesman from The Fat Ham and Greg Garbacz from Sbraga. What’s more, that Open Stove competition is a little bit of a grudge match, seeing as both Greg and Aaron have stepped up to the stoves before. Greg won. Aaron lost. And now both of them have something to prove.
So check out the full preview after the jump. And get ready to make with the clicky-clicky right at 2pm today, because these things are going to sell out fast.
