If you’ve always wanted to attend an interactive cooking show, Pearson School of Culinary Arts (PSCA) has a Master Class for you. Initially developed as an enrichment activity for the Market Fresh Cuisine program, Master Class is changing its focus this year. The class will be offered in the evening. This will allow more guests to attend the unique event.
Chef instructor Michel Ross explains that the objective of the Master Class “is to promote the teaching, sharing and collaboration found in our trade, as well as our department's work with our industry partners.”
7 chefs, 7 Mondays, at 7 pm
The Master Class will give local foodies the opportunity to mingle with some of the city’s top chefs. Over the course of the school year, seven chefs will visit PSCA and share their expertise and passion with local foodies and budding chefs. Each Master Class will have a different theme. Set up like an interactive cooking show, participants will have an opportunity to watch a chef demonstrate his/her dish, ask questions, and taste the evening’s culinary creation. Chef instructor Nancy Gagnon explains that each class “will introduce guests to a very established and talented Montreal chef. It is for people who are interested in ingredients (information, preparation, professional techniques/tips) as well as food’s sensory properties (presentation, tastes, textures).”
Classes will be held on Monday evenings in Le Saucier, the school’s gourmet-class dining room. The cost of each Master Class will vary, depending on the dish being prepared.
The year’s first class will be held on Monday, October 29 at 7 pm. Theo Lerikos, chef/owner of Tuck Shop restaurant, will demonstrate how to create autumn bounty quick meals. Mr. Lerikos is a graduate of the Professional Cooking program at PSCA.
The first class costs $20. Participants need to call 514-363-6213 to reserve their place. Cash payment is made at the door.
