Description

When both a head distiller and an executive chef team up to lead a cooking class, the experience is bound to take shape differently. At Washington DC’s only urban distillery and restaurant, the synergy between food + drink is the focus at ‘The Spirit of Cooking,’ a new series of cooking classes in which head distiller, Matt Strickland, and Executive Chef, Justin Bittner, team up to present an intimate, interactive cooking class at the Chef’s Counter, an annex built into Bittner’s kitchen.

Spirit of Cooking Class #3: Corn & Whiskey

The versatile corn is the focus of the August 28th Spirit of Cooking class. Chef Bittner will demonstrate an array of techniques he uses in the preparation of some of his favorite dishes incorporating corn in each one. Attendees will learn about various uses for corn and why it's such an important part of our food culture. Students will also learn how to prepare various appetizers and entrees featuring the almighty corn and enjoy a full dinner and accompaniments, all paired with District Distilling cocktails.
