Experience Saturday @ The Kitchen Shop

June 29 @ 8:00 am - 6:00 pm


Experience Saturdays in our Kitchen Shop at The Culinary Center of Kansas City
Touch, Try, Learn, Smell, Taste & A Whole Lot More!

Here’s what we have planned for Saturday, June 29, 2019.
Come experience The Kitchen Shop, 8 a.m. – 6 p.m.

FREE Cooking Demonstrations with Rachel Van Stratton
9 a.m. - 12 p.m. (on-going demos, so stop by anytime)
Rachel will be in the kitchen decorating cookies with a Star Spangled Summer theme! Stop by to try them - there may even be some here for sale! - and learn tips & techniques for cookie decorating. Snap a pic of Rachel's Royal Icing recipe and try it at home!  No need to register - just stop by between 9 a.m. and Noon.

Meet Vegetable Butcher™
CCKC Executive Chef Jill Garcia Schmidt

9 a.m. - 12 p.m.
Chef Jill will be happy to clean and cut your market produce... and entertain you at the same time. And it's FREE!! Heck, she may even have a few knife skills to teach you and recipes for you to try with your market treasures. (Ok, she will for sure.) Bring your market produce purchases and get them cut by our Vegetable Butcher!

Knife Sharpening
The Edge Doctor™ will be on duty in our Kitchen Shop! Bring your knives to be sharpened. We’ll do it on the spot, if possible – or drop them off, if you like. We can sharpen your Standard Knives (also called American or Western – e.g. chef, paring & boning knives) as well as your Contemporary Asian Knives (e.g., Santoku) for $3 each. Have questions about your knives and knife sharpening? Stop by and talk with The Edge Doctor.

FREE Food & Wine Tastings & More...
Come on in and nibble on some tasty foods and drinks, including dishes from our Dinners on Demand™ menu. You’ll know you’re here when you pick up the intoxicating smells wafting from our door.

Shonna Walker with One Hope Wine will be here from 9 a.m. - Noon, and you'll get to try some gourmet popcorn from local maker Popculture and wine from @OneHope.  The flavors are a surprise!  (btw >> 10% of all qualified sales of One Hope Wine are donated to charity.)

Live Art
10 a.m. - 12 p.m.
Artist Marcia Streepy will take a blank canvas and make it art Saturday morning in The Kitchen Shop, as she paints colorful market produce. Watch art happen and talk with the artist!

Interactive Stations
Experience interactive displays throughout the shop and get some hands-on culinary education. Find out more about fresh vs. dried Herbs. Learn to identify different types of Pasta… and more!

We’re keeping a few fun surprises a secret for now.  You’ll just have to stop by to find out what else we have up our chef coat sleeve!
