Lola's Offers Cooking Classes
Cook your way around the country without ever leaving Hollywood at the "regional American cooking series" at Michael Wagner's witty contemporary American Lola's on Harrison.
The third in the six-part series features the cuisines of the Gulf Coast--Louisiana, Alabama and Mississippi (Florida will get its own session later)--and takes place at the restaurant from 5 to 7 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 20. At the session, Wagner will demo a three-course meal in his home-made "kitchen stadium," made possible by a recent expansion into the business next door that comes complete with mobile mini-kitchen and big-screen TV to focus on the chef's hands at work.
The menu begins with shrimp and grits, then moves on to thyme-mustard catfish with black-eyed pea cakes and pecan butter, then finishes with chocolate truffle cake. Cost is $50 per person, and you get to eat the result. Recipes too.
Upcoming sessions are on the cuisine of the Southwest (Jan. 31), Pacific Northwest (Feb. 28) and American Southeast (March 28). You need to make rezzies by calling the restaurant at 954-927-9851.
