2014 CHRISTMAS DESIGNS
 
Staff Instructor

Charla Tatom
 
Presents

COOKIE CRAFTING

2014 CHRISTMAS DESIGNS

 

New 2014 Christmas designs and two rolled cookie recipes: traditional sugar cookies and gingerbread cookies.

The decorated cookie is one of the sweetest gifts you can give. Who wouldn’t feel loved and appreciated by someone who took the time and effort to make them a special cookie that was just as beautiful as it tasted?
 
In this class, staff instructor Charla Tatom, owner of Celebrate with Cake, you will teach you a variety of techniques to decorate sugar cookies, several of which have been borrowed from the art of paper crafting.  One of the mediums we will use is glacé icing which is made with corn syrup and powdered sugar. Glacé icing is easy to work with, super forgiving, and tastes great. Like royal icing, it will dry to a solid sheen, making the cookies stackable and packable – perfect for giving away. But unlike royal icing, glacé icing keeps the cookie moist and is soft to eat.
 
Another technique that will be taught is how to cover your cookies with textured fondant embellished with edible luster color.  And finally, you will get to try some new stenciling and stamping techniques that will produce amazing and professional results!  Charla will also demonstrate several tips and tricks for rolling out your dough, baking your cookies, and filling and storing your icing bags. Plus she will teach you a fail-proof way to make cookie bouquets.  When you finish this class you will not only leave with some fabulous cookies, but a couple of the tools will be yours to keep.



Unlike other cake decorating classes, WE supply the ingredients 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 COOKIE CRAFTING, 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. Please wear closed-toe shoes and restrain shoulder-length or longer hair.

Wine, beer, sparkling water, and soft drinks are included with this class.
Other wines by the bottle and the glass are available at an additional charge.

Given this is a decorating class, there is no meal included.  Please make appropriate arrangements.

A GRAPE EDUCATION



Pinot Noir "Heartbreak Grape" Tasting


Join Rolling Pin’s resident wine guy, Marc Wagner, for a mini guided tour of different aspects of the wine world on Saturday afternoons.  In this class, we will be featuring three Pinot Noirs, from producers from the wine regions of Santa Maria Valley, California, Willamette Valley, Oregon, and Burgundy, France along with 2 cheeses chosen for comparison and contrast.  Although it is a fickle vine to tend, the payoff of its grapes is tremendous, producing a fruit-forward, silky-smooth wine that leaves a lasting impression on the palate. We will learn the distinct flavors of the same grapes grown in these different regions.  From the established to the new kids on the block, we'll present to you some of the finest producers of the "Heartbreak Grape."

COOKIE CRAFTING
2014 CHRISTMAS DESIGNS
 

Chef Lynnette

 
Presents

COOKIE CRAFTING

2014 CHRISTMAS DESIGNS

 

New 2014 Christmas designs and two rolled cookie recipes: traditional sugar cookies and gingerbread cookies.

The decorated cookie is one of the sweetest gifts you can give. Who wouldn’t feel loved and appreciated by someone who took the time and effort to make them a special cookie that was just as beautiful as it tasted?
 
In this class, Chef Lynnette you will teach you a variety of techniques to decorate sugar cookies, several of which have been borrowed from the art of paper crafting.  One of the mediums we will use is glacé icing which is made with corn syrup and powdered sugar. Glacé icing is easy to work with, super forgiving, and tastes great. Like royal icing, it will dry to a solid sheen, making the cookies stackable and packable – perfect for giving away. But unlike royal icing, glacé icing keeps the cookie moist and is soft to eat.
 
Another technique that will be taught is how to cover your cookies with textured fondant embellished with edible luster color.  And finally, you will get to try some new stenciling and stamping techniques that will produce amazing and professional results!  Charla will also demonstrate several tips and tricks for rolling out your dough, baking your cookies, and filling and storing your icing bags. Plus she will teach you a fail-proof way to make cookie bouquets.  When you finish this class you will not only leave with some fabulous cookies, but a couple of the tools will be yours to keep.



Unlike other cake decorating classes, WE supply the ingredients 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 COOKIE CRAFTING, 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. Please wear closed-toe shoes and restrain shoulder-length or longer hair.

Wine, beer, sparkling water, and soft drinks are included with this class.
Other wines by the bottle and the glass are available at an additional charge.

Given this is a decorating class, there is no meal included.  Please make appropriate arrangements.

EASY ENTERTAINING ON A DIME


Rolling Pin proudly welcomes Celebrity Chef Whitney Miller to the Culinary Center for the first of many cooking classes. 



Inspired by the hospitality of her 97 year-old great-grandmother and creativity of her mother, Whitney Miller’s passion for the art of cooking began at an early age. At twenty two, she won the show “Masterchef,” gaining the title of Fox’s 1st U. S. Masterchef. Soon afterward, Whitney obtained her degree, with an emphasis in nutrition, from The University of Southern Mississippi.

Whitney conducted cooking demonstrations at the 2011 Chicago Home and Housewares Show with celebrity chefs such as Guy Fieri and Curtis Stone, 2012 Cape Town’s Good Food and Wine Show in South Africa with chefs such as “Cake Boss” Buddy Valastro, UK’s “The Spice Prince” Reza Mahammad, and Italian Michelin Star chef Giorgio Locatelli,  2012 Women’s Health magazine’s Chicago and New York City “Are You Game?”, and 2013 Chicago Home and Housewares Show in addition to numerous private and corporate health symposiums for Southern Power in Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, and Georgia, and Blue Cross Blue Shield. Her cooking demonstrations have also been featured in the Masterchef app. As the youngest contestant and winner of Fox’s first America’s Masterchef, Whitney continues to inspire children, youth, and young adults, through cooking demonstrations and speaking events at public and private schools, culinary classes and colleges, and children’s museum events across the United States.

Whitney has been featured across the globe in Southern cuisine cooking promotions, the latest being The St. Regis Tianjin in China. In January, Whitney was featured as the opening night chef (the first Southern chef) at Chefdance 2013 within the Sundance film festival, cooking for celebrities such as Kenny Loggins and photographer to the stars, Norman Seeff.

The very versatile and trendy peacock design has appeared on cakes for weddings, birthdays, and even baby showers.

Then you will work with fondant to create the peacock and fancy feathers that cascade down the side. You will leave the class with one gorgeous cake!

*EXCLUSIVE EVENT*
SOUTHERN CHEF
VIRGINIA WILLIS
UPTOWN DOWN-HOME COMFORT FOOD
 

**EXCLUSIVE EVENT**

Southern Chef and Cookbook Author

CHEF VIRGINIA WILLIS
Presents

"LIGHTEN UP Y'ALL"
Featuring Recipes From Her NEWEST Cookbook JUST RELEASED!


As the daughter and granddaughter of consummate Southern cooks and a classically trained French chef, Virginia has a gift for giving French recipes a down-home Southern feel. Her acclaimed first book,  Bon Appetite, Y’all , is a passionate homage to her culinary roots. In her demonstration of these recipes from her new book,  Basic to Brilliant, Y’all , Virginia will show you how to take a tasty basic recipe and transform it, via a technique, garnish, additional step, or short recipe, into a show stopper.


Georgia-born French-trained Chef Virginia Willis has cooked Lapin Normandie with Julia Child in France, prepared lunch for President Clinton, catered a bowling party for Jane Fonda, and harvested capers in the shadow of a smoldering volcano in Sicily -- but it all started in her grandmother’s country kitchen. 

The Chicago Tribune praised her as one of "Seven Food Writers You Need to Know." She is the author of a number of cookbooks in addition to those mentioned previously. Her legion of fans love her knack for giving classic French cooking a down-home feel and reimagining Southern recipes en Français. She writes the popular comfort food blog called Down-Home Comfort that celebrates comfort food cooking for Food Network and the Cooking Channel. Her eponymous food blog receives rave reviews for her recipes and stories celebrating her unique culinary niche.

She is a contributing editor for Southern Living and her articles have appeared nationally including Food52 and CNN.com as well as Country Living, Fine Cooking, All-Recipes, and Eating Well. As a nationally recognized Southern food and beverage expert she has been featured in the Washington Post and USA Today as well as quoted in the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal.

She is the former TV kitchen director for Martha Stewart Living, Bobby Flay, and Nathalie Dupree. Virginia has appeared on Food Network's Chopped, Fox Family and Friends, Martha Stewart Living, Paula Deen's Best Dishes, and as a judge on Throwdown with Bobby Flay.



She is a member of the International Association of Culinary Professionals, Les Dames d'Escoffier, Georgia Organics, and the Southern Foodways Alliance. Virginia is on the advisory boards for the Atlanta Community Food Bank and the Monterey Bay Aquarium's Seafood Watch Blue Ribbon Task Force. She participates in Chef's Move to Schools and is also part of the No Kid Hungry Blogger Program for Share our Strength.

The dishes she prepares for you tonight will leave you ready to put on an apron and run to your stove.  Virginia is a best-selling author for a reason - she knows her way around the kitchen like no one else.  Don't miss out on this valuable lesson from a world-class teacher.
