Wednesday, February 10
$25 per person (includes chef demonstration, tasting, two cocktails and recipe cards)
Join Sabor Saveur owner and executive chef Yanitzin Sanchez for a decadent evening of culinary instruction to celebrate Valentine’s Day. The Mexican-born and French-trained toque will walk guests through two dishes – one savory, and one sweet.
Guests will learn how to prepare two of Sabor Saveur’s signature dishes – an entree of lobster enchiladas with hazelnuts and tropical chutney, and figs-and-coconut ante served with lemon, blueberry cream and glace sauce as dessert. The class will then get to sample the items, paired with two champagne cocktails per person. Recipe cards detailing both dishes will be sent home with participants to re-create the experience at home.
Class participants will also receive 25 percent off of their bill if they choose to stay at Sabor Saveur for dinner after the demonstration. (Remember: The restaurant is BYOB, so be sure to bring your own bubbly if staying for dinner.)
To reserve your spot in Sabor Saveur’s Valentine’s cooking class and to make dinner reservations, call 773.235.7310.
