Stone Fruit and Organic Chicken
The class explores the possibilities of what you can do with stone fruits other than just eating them raw or making them into jam or jelly. Chef Tanaka will demonstrate how they are perfect for relishes, pickling, purees and gelees. During the class, Chef Tanaka will also demonstrate how to roast the perfect chicken and show guests just how easy it really is to have the chicken come out with a nice crisp skin and perfectly moist meat every time.
"Try making a chicken salad with leftover roasted chicken and adding diced peaches or cherries," explained Tanaka. "The sweetness from stone fruit pairs perfectly with the roasted chicken," he added.
