Ann Arbor Cooks! Kids' Workshop: Grill Master.

  community member   < less Ann Arbor Cooks Logo

Get fired up! This isn't your dad's BBQ, it's your turn to learn how to safely grill. This is one of the simplest ways to put dinner on the table during the summer and we're rolling out the jumbo gas grill for these two classes. Everything from romaine to bananas will go on the grill in these classes. First we'll mix up some classic dry rubs for you to take home and use later this summer. After that we'll learn about grill safety and cleaning. Next we'll gather up the ingredients, tongs, spatulas, oven mitts, and hopefully sunglasses as we grill up a meal to enjoy. Day 1-Grilled Caesar & Chicken Salad; Pizza Margherita; Cinnamon Grilled Peaches with Vanilla Ice Cream; All-Purpose Dry Rub. Day 2-Philly Cheese Brats; Sweet Potato Planks with a Yogurt-Herb Dip; Banana Splits with Chocolate Ice Cream, Caramel Sauce, and a Cherry on Top; Memphis Dry Rub. This summer workshop is for kids ages 8 and up. Full participation. Register online 48 hours in advance at www.annarborcooks.com
