Looking for a fun way to unplug, unwind and learn something new if you like to entertain? Savvy and sophisticated successful women in business might enjoy the opportunity to improve culinary technique, become immersed in another culture, and impress friends and family this holiday season with Four Seasons Hotel Baltimore Executive Chef Oliver Beckert’s Cooking Classes. More than just a cooking class, these interactive experiences will provide guests the opportunity to learn new techniques and recipes while enjoying the fruits of their labor over an afternoon of delicious food, perfectly paired drinks and animated discussion around cooking.
Drawing on his German heritage and decades of experience with Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts around the world, each three hour class will feature Chef Oliver demonstrating a variety of cooking techniques and at-home entertaining tips along with a sampling of the featured food and drink pairings. With three distinct classes to choose from, guests can really expand their culinary repertoire; from perfecting grilling techniques in time for tailgating season and learning how to create authentic German recipes in honor of Oktoberfest, to mastering the art of roasting a turkey and preparing other holiday classics friends and family will be most thankful for come November. The classes are a great opportunity to learn more about cooking, connect with fellow gourmands, or even purchase as a gift for a foodie friend. Our CCO and Founder is looking forward to the Holiday entertaining class particularly – sign up soon as we have it on good authority that they fill up quickly. The first class this past weekend was a hit, and filled up right away.
Graduates of chef’s culinary classes will receive a specially embroidered Four Seasons apron “Today I am the Chef!” and recipe booklet to take home. The classes are limited to 12 guests, and the cost to attend each class is $60 per person. Reservations can be made by contacting Vaughn Allen at Vaughn.Allen@fourseasons.com, or (410) 223-1333.
