Mastering Bistro Burgers & Frites!
Chef Jeff King of A to Z Cooking school and Chef Amy Baer Robinson of EpicureanSB are joining forces to demonstrate a most delicious evening of Bistro style hamburgers, and crispy French Fries (aka frites). Up your burger game with the skills to make the perfect, juiciest burger and crispiest, tastiest fries at home!
Learn the secrets to building a truly delicious burger…From choosing the cuts of beef, to the quality, grade, and even grind. (Fyi- We’ll be featuring local grass-fed beef from The Larder Meat Co….Because your burger is only as good as your beef).Then we’ll learn how to season and sear, and most importantly, how to know the perfect time to flip that patty to ensure a perfectly cooked burger every time. Guests will have the opportunity to cook burgers in small groups, and then top them with brioche buns, a variety of classic toppings, sauces, and of course – cheeses!
Enjoy our burgers with burger friendly wines and beers, hot off the fryer French fries, and a refreshing salad…and of course, something sweet to end the evening!
Chef Amy Baer Robinson, a burger lover herself has honed her burger making skills through her time working at Pico with Chef Drew Terp, her culinary travels through France, and through NYC’s ever changing burger scene. She often hosts Burger cook-offs with friends, constantly playing with different burger blends, techniques, and burger toppings; and therefore has tried just about everything…From sous vide burgers, to fried Mac and cheese patties, to the perfecting her own “special sauce”.
Jeff King is one of the creative directors and educators at A to Z Cooking School, as well as an avid baker. He has consulted with local restaurants, including The Daisy, on their bread program, and has mastered sourdoughs and naturally leavened bread to the point at which he mills his own grains, and lovingly cares for his 30 year old Sourdough starter. Growing up he cooked alongside his grandmother; baking bread, making fresh pasta, and following Julia Child, and now is eager to share his passion for healthful, delicious cooking with ESB!
