Free Chef Demonstration and Tasting

Chef Brian Shannon of Bishop's Lodge will demonstrate how to cook perfect risotto.

As if you needed another excuse to go up to Santa Fe for a day: free gourmet chef tasting.

Have you ever tried to make risotto? Especially at this altitude, where “the boiling point” falls well short of 212°F, and rice takes for-EV-er to cook?

Well, don’t give up. Instead, take a scenic drive up to Bishop’s Lodge, where Chef Brian Shannon offers a cooking demonstration and class every Saturday at 11:00am. This Saturday, July 4 (2009), Chef Shannon will be preparing a wild mushroom and leek risotto. He’ll discuss ingredients (arborio rice, anyone?), steps in preparation, and proper techniques. PLUS, you’ll get to try a sample of the finished producto. (Either that’s Italian for “product,” or else we just made it up.)

While the event is free, reservations are required by calling 505-983-6377. Ask for further instructions on where to meet up, since Bishop’s Lodge is a sprawling place.

Bishop’s Lodge is located in Santa Fe, fittingly enough, on Bishop’s Lodge Road.
