Kitchen Skills that Help you Enjoy Your Own Party, with Josephine Proul of Local 111

January 20 @ 11:00 am - 1:30 pm


The quest for a delicious dinner party menu is something we all aspire to, but the trick is how to do it with make-ahead preparations so you aren’t stressed as guests arrive. Join Executive Chef Josephine Proul of Local 111 in Philmont, NY, as she walks you through each step and shares her professional tips and secrets.

When great flavors come together it’s magic, and Josephine has that gift in spades. But what sets this class apart is not just the dishes, but the preparation. The carrots, green beans, pickled shallots, shaved Brussels sprouts, rice and sauces are all preparations that can happen in advance, and Josephine will show you how. At the end you’ll enjoy the delicious results. Oh, and BTW, Josephine Proul is not only highly skilled but enormously entertaining. This class will be anything but stuffy!

  • Lamb Meat Balls with Peruvian Style Green Sauce
  • Warm Basmati Rice Salad with Coriander and Lots of Herbs + Yogurt
  • Carrots + Green Beans with Pickled Shallots + Sunflower Butter or Jazzy Ranch
  • Shaved Brussels Sprout Salad with Radish, Herbs + Lemon Pecorino Vinaigrette
