Support the independent voice of South Florida and help keep the future of New Times free.
When dinner and a movie night just doesn't cut it anymore, why not try something new?
Something like, oh -- say -- strapping on an apron and cook alongside Chef Hugh from Hugh's Culinary in Fort Lauderdale.
Whether you want to sauté and simmer or you'd rather just sit back and enjoy, Hugh's Culinary Cooking Experience is a great way to try something new.
Each month, Hugh's Culinary
in Fort Lauderdale hosts its special Culinary Cooking Experience, an interactive cooking class where attendees can sit and watch -- or get in on the action -- all while enjoying some fabulous food and drink.
The culinary experience walks you through the creation of a three-course meal, complete with appetizer, entrée, and dessert. The evening wouldn't be complete without a few specially paired drinks as well, including cocktails, beer, or wine meant to complement each dish.
Today only, you have the chance to try helping out Chef Hugh with our Deal of the Day
: $36 for a session regularly priced at $80.
Themes rotate monthly, so be sure to pick a class that's to your liking. Hugh's upcoming culinary experience is set to take place September 15 and will be offering a wine pairing theme. But don't wait: Classes, which usually have anywhere from 40 to 50 people, fill up quickly.
So what are you waiting for? Strap on an apron, and get up there and cook.
