The Houston based non-profit, Friends for Good, will host a cooking class at Central Market in Houston featuring chefs from Green Beans and Guacamole, a cookbook for-a-cause supported by exceptional Houston restaurants, on Tuesday, April 10, 2012.
Guests attending the Central Market cooking class will watch as a star-studded lineup of Houston chefs, including Chef Dominic of Masraff’s, Chef David of Le Mistral, and Chef Jamie from Zelko Bistro, demonstrate their own recipes from the Green Beans and Guacamole cookbook.
The coffee-table style cookbook is a culmination of recipes from more than 45 Houston chefs and restaurants. Attending guests will receive first-hand expertise on how to make these delicious recipes and, as an added bonus, will take home their own copy of Green Beans and Guacamole.
Cooking Class Menu:
David Denis will demo the Tomato Tartar & Tomato Basil Sorbet
Jamie Zelko will demo the Texas Brown Bay Shrimp & Grits
Dominic Juarez will demo the Bosc Pear Crème Brulee
The cooking class costs $70 per person, which includes a copy of Green Beans and Guacamole. Attending chefs will be available to sign copies of the cookbook after the class, and additional copies of the cookbook will be available for purchase for $49.95. All proceeds from the sale of Green Beans and Guacamole benefit The Arc, an organization dedicated to helping people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
“The Central Market cooking class is a great way to offer Houstonians a live, interactive experience with the chefs of the amazing recipes found in Green Beans and Guacamole,” said Belinda Hillhouse, founder of Friends for Good.
