Daily Candy: The Main Course

If your cooking has been described as being from Hell's Kitchen (and not the right HK), you're just in time for the holiday cooking class juggernaut. Robert Gerstenecker, executive chef of The Four Seasons Atlanta, is taking you to town (or the grocery store) for a little Shop and Chop. Read my piece, sharpen your knives, and dig in.

The Main Course
chop! chop!

Bravo, Mother Hubbard. You’ve been so busy climbing the corporate ladder that your cupboard really has gone bare. True, the freshest thing in your fridge is green — just in a very, very bad way.

Sounds like it’s time to enroll in Shop and Chop, a new interactive cooking class with Four Seasons Hotel Atlanta head chef Robert Gerstenecker.

Over four hours, he’ll escort you to a nearby grocery store (we hear the first stop’s Whole Foods) for a crash course in selecting produce, meats, and prime ingredients like a pro. Then a hotel driver whisks you to the restaurant to prepare a killer meal, which you’ll eat alongside Gerstenecker, exec chef-style, in the Park 75 kitchen.

When all’s said and done, you take home what you’ve learned (doggie bag, bones, and all) to put in that pantry of yours. As a sweet bonus, $25 of the $100 class fee goes toward a Park 75 gift certificate for future use.

As for Mother Hubbard, well, she’s sure to be eating her heart out already.

Shop and Chop debuts Tuesday, September 19, 5:30-9:30 p.m., at Four Seasons Hotel Atlanta, 75 14th Street, Midtown. To sign up, call 404-253-3840.
