Event Overview

Cooking Class + Book Club = Cooking the Books!

Join us for the next in a series of cooking classes based on cookbooks! Hosted by cookbook aficionados Maribeth Heeran and Jennifer Berman, we’ll be exploring a different cookbook each month. This month we’re excited to welcome guest cookbook author Gary Wiviott of Low & Slow 2: The Art Of BBQ, Smoke Roasting, and Basic Curing.

With pit master Gary Wiviott’s don’t over-think it philosophy, you’ll be ready to flaunt your charcoal mastery and hone your barbecue skills just in time to show them off to your friends this summer. In this demo class, you’ll learn how to make mouthwatering barbecue and smoke-roasted meats without fail. Gary will demonstrate and sample a few recipes from his book, such as Brisket with Texas BBQ Sauce and Lexington Red Slaw.
