CHEF KEITH WILLIAMSON

Presents

"FARM TO FORK"


Originally from Philadelphia, Executive Chef Keith Williamson was lured into the culinary world when his passion for this industry was recognized at an early age. Keith went on to study at The Restaurant School of Walnut Street in downtown Philadelphia and then soon headed to San Francisco to hone his skills at Enotecca Lanzone in Opera Plaza, then to Ca'Peo in Liguria, Italy, a two-Michelin Star restaurant.

Over the years, Keith owned and operated Baci Italian Grill and Basque Mediterranean Tapas. Chef Keith worked under influential leaders in the Cameron Mitchell Group at Ocean Prime as Executive Chef shaping his style and depth of knowledge. He balances his culinary career with his love for Sicilian food at his vacation home " Think Tank " in Caccamo, near Palermo.

Chef Keith's culinary philosophy and passion reflects the growing trend towards a healthier and down-to-earth lifestyle, decreasing the distance between farm and dinner table by sourcing locally and using sustainable items in his kitchens.

In addition to cooking, Chef Keith's passion is to teach and develop up-and-coming chefs, helping to discover their talents in the same way his mentor Modesto Lanzone encouraged him. Chef Keith also believes in a continuously evolving mentality and in constantly satisfying his thirst for knowledge. His motto: "Cook with your heart, feed people with love."

                        
Tonight we shorten the distance between the farm and the dinner table. Sourcing locally is sustainable and better for the planet. Come meet the farmer and enjoy the harvest.

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.

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.

CHEF DEVIN DAVIS

Presents

"FALL COMFORT FOOD"





Chef Dave, Karen, and the Rolling Pin staff are proud to welcome back Chef Devin Davis to the RP Culinary Center.  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 has 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.

DOUGHNUT WORKSHOP
 

Chef Dave Presents

NEW CLASS
DOUGHNUT WORKSHOP



A doughnut - or donut - is a type of fried or baked dough confectionery or dessert food. The doughnut is popular in many countries and prepared in various forms as a sweet snack that can be homemade and embellished with ease. They are usually deep-fried from a flour dough, and typically either ring-shaped or without a hole and often filled. Other types of batters can also be used, and various toppings and flavorings are used for different types, such as sugar, chocolate, or maple glazing.

The two most common types are the toroidal ring doughnut and the filled doughnut, which is injected with fruit preserves, cream, custard, or other sweet fillings. A small spherical piece of dough may be cooked as a doughnut hole. Other shapes include rings, balls, and flattened spheres, as well as ear shapes, twists, and other forms. Doughnut varieties are also divided into cake and risen type doughnuts.

Now that we have the proper definition, we can now get into the real deal.  Let's fry and bake these babies and start eating amazing homemade creations. 

Hope you can join in the making of sweet treats! 


Today's Menu:

Classic French Cruller with Maple Sugar Glace

Baked Cake Doughnut with Chocolate Ganache Icing

Sweet Potato and Carrot Doughnut with Butter Cream Frosting

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.

GOURMET CUPCAKE BAKING
*NEW FLAVORS*


You’ve been asking, we heard you, and here it is! In this hands-on class, Staff Instructor Charla Tatom, owner of Celebrate with Cake, will coach you to success as we bake SIX delicious cupcake recipes.   



Red Velvet with Cream Cheese Icing
Amazing Chocolate with Vanilla Buttercream
Apple Pie Cupcakes with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Icing
Tender Coconut Cupcakes with Almond Buttercream
Carrot Cake Supreme with Cream Cheese Icing
Lemon Cupcakes with Lemon Buttercream



To accomplish all this in one class, students will divide into baking teams and make two different recipes. Every student will take home one of each of the six different cupcakes. Three of the cupcakes will be extensively doctored cake mix recipes (semi-homemade). The other three recipes are completely from scratch. All are delicious. You decide your favorites.




Unlike other decorating classes, WE supply everything you need 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 bake.  If you decide you want to get into cupcake baking and 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. 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 cupcake baking class, there is no meal included.  Please make appropriate arrangements.
