Sneak Preview: April At COOK

It’s that time again, folks. The new schedule of COOK classes is going live tomorrow afternoon, but because you are wise and loyal fans of Foobooz, you get to sneak a peek at it early and thereby plan out your assault for tomorrow.

There’s a lot of cool and interesting stuff happening at COOK in April–like an evening with Lee Styer of Fond, “Breakfast of Champions”with Scott Schroeder and George Costa, a shellfish class with Joncarl Lachman of Noord (which, if I’m not mistaken, is probably the first time he’ll be cooking in Philly in any kind of public way), and our own Foobooz Open Stove night to start the month off right.

Check out the full schedule after the jump.

  • April 3: Foobooz Open Stove XII. You ever watched Iron Chef? Yeah, our event is just like that–only with more drinking, cursing and Gummy Bears
  • April 4: A Very Vegan Feast with Rachel Klein of Miss Rachel’s Pantry
  • April 5: Perfect Pairings: Beer and Cheese with Gene Muller of Flying Fish Brewing Co Emilio Mignucci of DiBruno Bros
  • April 9: The Classic Sixties Dinner Party with Daniela D’Ambrosio and Todd Braley of The Pickled Heron, which is TOTALLY not going to be a key party. Really.
