Attend Our Cooking Classes At Euphemia Haye | Best of “Things To Do” In Sarasota, Venice & Bradenton

If you are looking for “things to do” in Sarasota, Venice or Bradenton, Chef Ray’s Cooking Classes at Euphemia Haye should be on the top of your list. We call the cooking classes “Lesson Luncheons” because they are taught in a demonstration style; so what that means is, Chef Ray does all of the cooking and you do the eating and drinking! Each class begins with our freshly-baked banana bread and a bottomless cup of our insanely good imported coffee. There’s no skimping here – each guest will get to enjoy a luxurious lunch that includes three courses and each course includes a paired glass of wine. Guests will watch and interact with Chef Ray as he prepares each of three courses in our main dining room. The food Chef Ray prepares is always amazing but his quick wit and lively personality steal the show. The classes are for anyone who wants to learn something about cooking – whether you’re already a “foodie” or just a kitchen novice, Chef Ray says that everyone will learn some useful tips. Register now because the cooking classes sell out fast!

Friday, January 29th 2016 – Forks & Corks Special Edition Lesson Luncheon

Price: $100.00 SOLD OUT
  • Seafood Rissole
  • Braised Beef Short Ribs
  • Key Lime, Blackberry Tart with Almond Crust

Today, our appetizer is delicious.  Layers of puffed, golden brown dough filled with freshly cooked seafood, then topped with a tarragon cream sauce.

Short ribs are all the rage.  So much so, they are no longer that inexpensive “go to” beef.  Today, we will learn how to braise them perfectly.  Also, we will make a wonderful creamy, cheesy polenta to accompany them.

The key lime silk tart is one of my favorites, and today we are making it gluten free with an almond crust and blackberries.
