Simple and Spectacular Summer Grilling with Alexandra Stafford

August 19, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 1:30 pm



‘Tis the season of food meeting fire. In this class, we’ll turn the oven off and take the cooking outside:

  • We’ll grill skewered cubes of chicken and make souvlaki sandwiches with tzatziki and quick-pickled onions.
  • We’ll briefly marinate salmon before grilling it atop cedar planks.
  • We’ll quickly grill slabs of flavorful skirt steak, which we’ll brush with a spicy, herby chimichurri.

As the meats marinate, cook, and rest, we’ll prepare cooling salads, sides and pickles to accompany the charred and burnished foods emerging from the grill.

About Alexandra Stafford

Ali Stafford, author of the hit food blog “Alexandra’s Kitchen” (www.alexandracooks.com), grew up eating her mother’s peasant bread at nearly every meal — the recipe for which was a closely guarded family secret. When her website began to grow in popularity, readers began asking how to make the bread they had heard so much about. Alexandra’s mother acquiesced, and the recipe got shared, and has since inspired many who had deemed bread-baking an impossibility to give it a try, and their results have exceeded expectations.
