Instructed by Culinary Department Chair Kevin Quinn of the Texas Culinary Academy, TEAM CUISINE offers a hands-on, in-kitchen opportunity to cook in a fun, small group setting. In honor of Valentine’s Day, Chef Quinn will take a few cues from Cupid, helping participants prepare a few recipes that are perfect for this romantic holiday. Chef Quinn will be joined by TCA Wine Instructor Jane Nickles, who will discuss a few featured wines that are guaranteed to get you in the mood for romance. The class will be divided into teams of two, each cooperating to create several recipes from start to finish. Chef Quinn will provide expert instruction and guidance throughout. Upon completion of the dishes, students will enjoy the fruits of their labor. A question and answer session will follow.
*Classes run approximately two hours, but can go longer depending on the menu. This is a hands-on cooking class.

February is Heart Month and in honor of your ticker, we are teaming up with the Heart Hospital of Austin and Twin Liquors for a session on how red wine benefits your heart. Cardiologist Dr. Earl Dixon will discuss what has come to be known at the French Paradox – why do some Europeans have lower rates of heart-related disease and illness? – and lead guests through a presentation on the links between good heart health and wine drinking. This event will include wine and a few light hors d'ouevres.
