Event description
A virtual interactive chef-guided workshop to help you prepare, cook, plate and present an extra special Thanksgiving feast.

About this Event

Breville knows this year is a strange one, and it'll feel especially different around the holidays. Traveling home to family may be "off the table", but that doesn’t mean your meal can’t be just as memorable.

We are excited to team up with hand-selected home chef instructors from Homemade and entertaining & culinary expert Stephanie Nass, aka Chefanie. Together, we'll guide you through preparing, cooking, plating and table presentation for your extra special Thanksgiving feast. Pour a glass of wine and join us as we take away the guesswork and guide you every step of the way.

This is a 2-part workshop series plus VIP donors get access to a bonus session + gift with ticket purchase (Breville Smoking Gun). Breville is hosting this workshop to support you during this very unique Thanksgiving. In addition, ALL ticket proceeds will be donated to our non-profit partner, The Edible Schoolyard Project, that is dedicated to transforming the health of children by designing hands-on educational experiences in the garden, kitchen, and cafeteria, connecting children to food, nature, and to each other. Also in partnership with Imperfect Foods, a food waste-fighting grocery delivery service.

About Homemade

Co-founders Joel Gamoran and Ben Rosenfeld saw a need for people to be able to gather safely with families, friends, and colleagues around food, and so, Homemade was born.

They are committed to being mindful of their food footprint as we all cook together.

MEET THE CHEFS

Chef Joel Gamoran, best known as the host for A&E’s hit series “Scraps,” has become one of the nation’s most well-known sustainability storytellers. Joel is a graduate of both the Culinary Institute of America and the Culinary Institute of Florence. He spent over ten years as a National Chef for Sur La Table. In 2018 Joel put his passion on paper with the release of his book “Cooking Scrappy” (Harper Collins), inspiring home cooks to turn scraps into delicious meals. Joel also makes monthly appearances on NBC’s Today Show, sharing his recipes and sustainability tips to a worldwide viewership. Through entertainment, creativity, humility, and education, Joel brings people together with a common goal of getting good food on the table while being mindful of waste.

Chef Lindsay Leopold knows her way around any kitchen, from her experience working in restaurants, running a culinary program, to her own home kitchen. Lindsay, a graduate of L’Academie de Cuisine in Gaithersburg, Maryland, honed her culinary skills by focusing on classic French cooking and baking techniques. Her Haitian background adds dimension to her French and American style cooking. She’s all about bold, bright, colorful, and yummy food. Chef Lindsay has done several media appearances on local radio, television programs, including a demo of Soul Food in celebration of MLK Day at the Smithsonian's American History Museum. Lindsay believes that when her students, family, and friends walk away from her meals and her kitchen, they always walk away with a piece of her heart.

Chef Ben Leonard is a private chef and cooking teacher in Los Angeles, California. After earning a Bachelor's Degree in English for Analytical Writing, he realized cooking was where his future lied. Ben went on to work for celebrated restaurants in his home state of Maine, and then Los Angeles. Four years ago he began exclusively teaching cooking classes at Sur La Table in Woodland Hills, California. During that time, in addition to running the cooking classes, he made numerous television and live cooking appearances. His appearances include hosting a charity dinner for the local community rescue mission, teaching a community kids class, and running events bringing awareness to local restaurants. Ben believes that each of us individually, as well as connections to our friends, families and loved ones, can be improved through cooking. Everyone deserves to feel comfortable and have fun cooking fresh, delicious, healthy food every single day.

Chef Renée Gabbett makes you feel that every meal you share should be celebrated. Exceedingly Midwestern, peppered with Korean and European roots, her style and approach to cooking could be described as New American Comfort Food. Teaching was a very organic and natural transition after working closely with families as a private chef in Chicago and New York. These experiences helped plant a seed for cooking meals that are beautiful and special yet easily created at home. Fifteen years of professional cooking have led to many wonderful and unique experiences. Renée worked as the chef and director of culinary school operations of an International school for pizzaioli based in Venice, Italy. She also designed classes for Goose Island Brewery’s global education in beer and food program. Aside from teaching and consulting on cooking with beer, you can find her at Paulie Gee’s Logan Square, running catering and private events, and occasionally slinging slices out of the New York slice window.

Chef Ryan Ross is a native of Warrenton, Virginia. She, along with her husband and daughter, have recently moved back to Fauqier county after living in Brooklyn, NY and in Washington State. Ryan has been in the realm of bespoke dining and food–centric events for the last 10 years. She grew up in her Mother’s organic health food store, The Natural Marketplace, in Warrenton. Ryan attended the Natural Gourmet Institute of NYC, as well as the Institute for Integrative Nutrition.

Who is Edible Schoolyard

The Edible Schoolyard Project is dedicated to transforming the health of children by designing hands-on educational experiences in the garden, kitchen, and cafeteria that connect children to food, nature, and to each other. An Edible Education places the child at the center of their learning and uses food to engage all aspects of the child’s education. Through growing, processing, cooking, eating, studying, talking, and thinking about food, students develop skills, knowledge, and behaviors that enrich their academic and nonacademic lives, bolster their growth as individuals and in relationships, and cultivate meaningful engagement with their own health, the health of their communities, and the health of the planet. At the heart of an Edible Education is a just and joyful learning experience for every child. Find out more at edibleschoolyard.org.
