Donna Nordin, one of the PBS network’s “Great Chefs of the West” and famed restaurateur, will bring Southwestern cuisine with a French twist to Carson City Friday and Saturday.
The classes will take place at Molly’s Gourmet Catering and Take Out, 220 West John Street. All skill levels are welcome, from the novice to the gourmet. Locals will remember Molly as Molly Olson, who was born and grew up in South Lake Tahoe.
Classic French Cuisine of Soufflé and Salmon is scheduled from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Friday; Southwestern Flair of Chile and Shrimp will be from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Saturday; and The Finest of France’s Salads and Tortes is from 5:30 to 8 p.m. Saturday. The cost is $125 per class or $300 or all three classes. To register and for more information call Molly at (775) 841-5511.
Participants will learn how to bring flavorful, imaginative, contemporary pizzazz to their own kitchen as they watch Nordin work her magic. Everyone will have an opportunity to ask questions and enjoy a sumptuous meal prepared right before their eyes. Each class includes hand-on instruction and preparation for a four-course meal. Selecting the right beverage can be tricky and Nordin will share her insights for serving the perfect alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks to complement each meal.
