A Thanksgiving Feast

Monday, October 9, 2017

Featuring: Executive Chef Kamal Silva, Executive Sous Chef Mike Reid and H2 Restaurant Chef Caitlin Mark

Description: Our H2 Cooking Class series kicks off with a Thanksgiving-themed dinner featuring a holiday spinach salad; roast turkey with all the fixings; and pumpkin chiffon pie for a sweet reward.

Since turkeys can take up to 6 hours to cook, H2’s expert chefs will teach attendees the basics of prepping a turkey but will also have some roasting ahead of time. This will ensure that turkey can be enjoyed during the dining portion of the evening, alongside the fixings that will be prepared from scratch. Whip up a classic cranberry stuffing, gravy, maple yams, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, and roasted brussels sprouts with bacon and parmesan.

Bring the whole clan for Thanksgiving Monday, on October 9th, starting at 5:00 PM with dinner served at 7:00 PM. Class capacity is 12 people maximum, with a cost of $85 per person. Add wine pairings for an additional $18 by the glass or $56 by the bottle. To book, please call the restaurant at 604-691-6966.
