Cooking the Market-Midtown Global Market
The Midtown Global Market Cooking in the Market has been voted "Best Cooking Class" by Minnesota Montly Magazine in 2011.
Cooking the Market is a completely-hands-on, inspired-by-the-season cooking class. We'll determine the menu on the spot based on what's fresh, new and interesting at the Midtown Global Market. This unique, high-energy class is perfect for meeting new people, bringing together a group of friends, celebrating special events...even group team building!
Join Chef Molly Herrmann of Tastebud Catering on this culinary adventure! Great for cooks of all levels of experience and knowledge - we please beginners and gourmets alike.
We'll start with a local cheese tasting course led by Grassroots Gourmet's Vicky Potts. Then we'll tour the Midtown Global Market, pointing out many great finds and ideas to spark inspiration for our creative meal. Then we cook. And, of course...eat!
