You look peckish. How about you sit down and let Lee Hillson, executive sous-chef at The Phoenician, fix you a nosh -- maybe the pasta carbonara from his competition with Iron Chef Cat Cora, back when he was still at T. Cook’s? He’ll start us off gently, pulling some newborn mozzarella for a caprese starter and sharing funny stories. Have a glass of wine. Feel free to ask questions. Later, he’ll walk us through a panna cotta. Not an evening for the dairy-averse, but yummy and educational: Next time, you do the cooking.
Hackett House’s Dinner Party Cooking Class, a relaxing, hands-off way to learn, features Hillson on Tuesday, March 11, from 6 to 9 p.m. at 95 West Fourth Street in Tempe. The $50 admission includes three courses in a festive, climate-controlled tent and benefits Tempe’s Sister Cities program. Hurry up and reserve your spot at www.hacketthouse.org or 480-350-8181.
Tue., March 11, 6-9 p.m., 2014
