Photos From the 2014 SCYPA Cooking Class

Last night (April 15th, 2014), the Simcoe County Young Professionals Association participated in our annual cooking class at Liberty North with Chef Rich. Approximately 30 people attended the event where we learned & watched Chef Rich prepare a variety of dishes including Goat Cheese Brule, Homemade Gravlox, Steak Tartare and Sesame-Crusted Seared Ahi Tuna. Needless to say, the food was amazing, and the event was, again, one of the best SCYPA events of the year.

Browse through the images above to check out some of the dishes we sampled. The feedback on the event was so good, we’re going to try to put together a 2nd cooking class this year in the fall with a Thanksgiving/Christmas turkey dinner theme. We’ll let you know as soon as we have the details.
