Event description


The word roast carries a lot of significance, conjuring images of juicy, well-seared meats, deliciously browned vegetables, caramelized drippings, crisp nubbins of goodness, and concentrated flavors. Few foods whet our appetites more, and mastering this essential technique is a cornerstone of developing kitchen confidence. Join award winning cookbook author Molly Stevens as she unravels the “why” behind the “how” of roasting and takes us through everything from high-heat roasting to slow-and-low to something in between. She’ll also cover topics of brining (wet vs. dry), gravy making, carving and resting. Note: this is a demonstration class.


  • Roasted Fennel, Onion and Orange Salad

  • Herb-Roasted Turkey Breast

  • Sauerkraut & Rye Bread Stuffing

  • Roasted Carrots with Pistachios, Sumac and Lime-Yogurt Sauce
