SUMMER FUN ICE CREAM CONE CAKE

 

Here's an ice cream cake that won't melt in Florida's summer heat! Staff Instructor Charla Tatom, owner of Celebrate with Cake, will show you how to make this fun ice cream-themed cake that is sure to be the hit at any summertime get-together.  

In this class, you will prepare and ice the cake, construct a 3-D, gravity-defying, quadruple-scoop ice cream cone cake topper, and finish it off with a fondant cherry.  Learning how to create the internal support structure for this cake is something that can be applied to many other cake designs.

Taking the Intro to Cake Decorating class prior to this class is recommended but not required.



Unlike other cake decorating classes, WE supply the cake and all tools needed to successfully complete this class.  You do not need to invest in any of the tools BEFORE you attend the class.  All you need is the will to learn and the desire to decorate.  If you decide you want to get into cake decorating, we do sell all of the tools and ingredients in our retail store.  Remember, students get a 10% off ALL retail items the day of class. 


This is a HANDS-ON style class

Wine, beer, sparkling water, and soft drinks are included with this class.

Presents

CHARLESTON STEAKHOUSE CUISINE


The food of Charleston, SC is often referred to as "low-country cuisine."  It is traditionally associated with the South and coastal areas.  While it shares features with Southern cooking, its geography, economics, demographics, and culture pushed its culinary identity in a different direction from regions above the fall line. With its rich diversity of seafood from the coastal estuaries, its concentration of wealth in Charleston and Savannah, and a vibrant Caribbean cuisine and African cuisine influence, low-country cooking has strong parallels with New Orleans and Cajun cuisine.


Charleston is a FAVORITE food city in the US.  Come join Chef Barb in a night of steak and seafood that pays special tribute to the roots of the south. 


Tonight's Menu:

Southern Shrimp Salad with Arugula and Lemon

Sous Vide and Grilled Filet of Beef with Shrimp Butter

Charleston Stone Ground Grits with Cheddar Cheese (we'll call them Polenta, if you like)

WINE 101
AN INTRODUCTION TO WINE
 


Join Rolling Pin’s resident wine guy, Marc Wagner, for a one hour guided tour of different aspects of the wine world.  Learning about wine is no different than learning to really appreciate music or art in that the pleasure you receive is proportionate to the effort you make. The more you fine-tune your sensory abilities, the better you’re able to understand and enjoy the nuances and details that great wines express. The time and effort invested is very rewarding—and a whole lot of fun!


This course offers an enjoyable, clearly marked journey through the delightful, sometimes baffling, world of wine. In this class, novices to longtime wine lovers will gain a better understanding of the many varieties and styles of wine, the principal wine-growing regions of the world, and the tastes, flavors, and tactile sensations that define a wine. Participants will better understand their own wine preferences and develop their personal skills for selecting and savoring wine. We will taste three great examples of a red, white, and a sparkling wine along with 2 cheeses chosen for comparison and contrast.


Here at Rolling Pin Wine 101, we hope to introduce you to many of these basics about wine so that you can start off on the right foot and not feel daunted. With a little experience, you can start down the road to being a true wine aficionado.

Presents

CULINARY TOUR OF FRANCE SERIES

CUISINE OF THE CHAMPAGNE REGION

Chef Gui is back from France and ready to create classic French dishes for you here in the Culinary Center.  He is classically trained, restaurant experienced, private chef motivated, and entrepreneurial driven, and a cookbook author to boot! In addition to his varied culinary background, Chef Gui now teaches young people in the culinary and pastry arts.  He is an amazing chef, instructor, and communicator.  Oh, his food is to die for too!

No need to introduce Champagne... or maybe we should! Champagne’s cuisine is definitely overshadowed by its renowned, sophisticated wines, which may very well be France’s most famous export. We may thank the Benedictine monk Dom Perignon for the development of Champagne, but we can thank Chef Gui for bringing the cuisine of Champagne to Tampa Bay. Here, we’ll take a walk on a path less traveled, one of souffle’, fricassee, and the charming madeleine.

So, dust off your beret and join us tonight as we take a culinary tour of France with Chef Gui. Tonight we travel to the Champagne region of France!  

Tonight's Menu:


Traditional Chaource Cheese Souffle’

Veal Fricassee with Champagne Sauce

Classic French Madeleines

 

This is a DEMONSTRATION style class

House wine, beer, sparkling water, and soft drinks are included. Other wines by the bottle and by the glass are available at an additional charge.

CHEF DEVIN DAVIS

Presents

"SCRATCH MADE ITALIAN DINNER"



Chef Dave, Karen, and the Rolling Pin staff are proud to welcome Chef Devin Davis to the RP Culinary Center for his FIRST EVER cooking class!  Devin was a champion baker and good cook before he ever came across the Rolling Pin.  He had numerous pie and baking prizes to his name, so he was no stranger to the kitchen.  His family have all long been supporters of his dream of being a chef.  He has been cooking for them for years.


FOX 13 APPEARANCE BEFORE NYC

Devin's mom Tina sought out Chef Dave and asked him to allow Devin and his sister to attend their first RP class, Knife Skills, back in June 2010.  She assured him  they were capable of holding their own and were there to hone their skills.  Devin attended many more classes with Chef Dave and the other in-house chefs.  He picked up new skills from each and made them his own.  He attended classes with Top Chef contestants, watching their every move and asking a MILLION questions.  Soon he become one of the first RP Assistants under the age of 18 and then to sous chef with Chef Dave.  The rest is history. 

Earlier this year, Devin found out about the Nationwide Scholarship Competition hosted by Food Network's Chopped and the Art Institute.  He decided to take a chance and apply.  He breezed through several entry levels and then won the Tampa Competition where he represented The Art Institute of Tampa.  Then he got the news: he would be one of 4 finalists out of 84 around the US to compete in NYC, all based on his performance at the Florida Competition.  It was exciting and tense.  He knew he had the skills and the desire, but that the others must have them, too.  So it was off to NYC and the Food Network Studios.  After a full day of competition, lots of waiting, and a bit of sightseeing, Devin was declared the 2014 Food Network Chopped Scholarship Challenge WINNER! 

CONGRATS CHEF DEVIN!  We are so proud of you and your accomplishments. 

ABC ACTION NEWS AFTER NYC (Food Network Chopped Scholarship Competition)

CHEF DEVIN'S WEBSITE and Summary of the Food Network Chopped Scholarship Competition

Chef Devin grew up in a half Italian family.  He was raised on traditional Italian food passed on from his great-grandmother. Tonight he pays tribute to some of the flavors of old world Italian cuisine.  He has decided during his first class at the Rolling Pin to show how easy it is to elevate traditional Italian classical dishes and how to do it from scratch.

We hope you can join Chef Devin in his First Ever Cooking Class.
