I also wanted to say that we had the first of the classes last week at PS 7's. Peter and his sous chef Will were fantastic in their instruction and the food was phenomenal. Take a look at the photos to see making brats.

Alex Making Brats!

Um, so that's me getting schooled by one Peter Smith in the delicate art of stuffing seasoned ground pork into a hog intestine.

The class was a blast, though clearly geared to people who aren't too handy in the kitchen. For me, the highlights were using reduced-until-brown-sludge orange juice (never seen that before) as a base for the chanterelle sauce, watching Peter Smith casually break down a strip loin and, of course, sucking down an absinthe-laced Sazerac with my lunch.

Good times. I'll be back on September 12 for the pink salt class.
