COOKING CLASSES WITH CHEF FRANK BRIGTSEN & CHEF DANA D’ANZI TUOHY
When people tour NOCCA, their first response is usually, “I wish I could’ve gone to school here.” Well, now they can – at least for two very special afternoons! Join NOCCA’s outstanding Culinary Arts faculty for some hands-on work in NOCCA’s new Emeril Lagasse Foundation Culinary Arts Studio.
October 15, 1:00pm – 5:00pm
“Gourmet Gifts from the Kitchen” with Chef Dana D’Anzi Tuohy and Caroline Robert

Master five fantastic gifts for the holidays – or anytime! Gifts include:
• Three Cheese Straws (Bleu, Parmesan, and Cheddar)

You’ll work alongside Chef Dana — former Chef de Cuisine at Emeril’s Delmonico in Las Vegas and former Pastry Chef at NOLA — to create each of these dishes, then watch as Caroline demonstrates some unique ideas to package your edible gifts, courtesy of Perch. Best of all, you’ll come home withsamples of the goodies you’ve made, as well as the recipes necessary to re-create them in your own kitchen.
