March Madness in our Cooking School

Explore a variety of cuisines, enjoy wine dinners and get grillin' with help from our team of experts in the Central Market Cooking School.

We've got a wealth of culinary talent visiting our Cooking Schools this month, here is a taste:
  • Aida Mollenkamp, host of FoodCrafters on the Cooking Channel and author of the newly released Keys to the Kitchen, will show attendees in Ft. Worth Austin North Lamar and San Antonio how to become more accomplished, adventurous cooks by relying on fresh, seasonal, whole ingredients accented with ethnic flavors.
  • Sebastien Rouxel, Executive Pastry Chef for the Thomas Keller Group and co-author of Bouchon Bakery will give tips on making some of their incredible pastries. He'll demonstrate the proper techniques for making a cream filled French crepe cake, a prune tart and one of Thomas Keller's favorite cookies, along with a tender scone and parfait with fresh, seasonal fruit. The Houston class is sold out but there are a few seats available in Dallas on Wednesday night (3/6).
  • Fans of Pati Jinich, host of Pati's Mexican Table on PBS, won't want to miss this opportunity to spend time with this dynamic proponent of Mexican home cooking. Dallas, Austin North Lamar and San Antonio registrants will be enticed by her menu and intrigued by her time saving updates that deliver traditional flavors. In Houston, you'll have a chance to have her sign a copy of her newly released book from 5 - 6:30 PM in the Cafe on Saturday, March 9.
  • I first heard about Lucinda Scala Quinn from a colleague, a former line cook, who raved about her first book, Mad Hungry, Feeding Men & Boys. She'll teach you to replicate the food that your family craves (but make it tastier, more cost-effective and more nutritious). This mother of three boys is not only the Executive Director of Food & Entertaining at Martha Stewart's Ominimedia, but hosts Mad Hungry on the Hallmark Channel and has authored 4 Cookbooks, most recently, Mad Hungry Cravings. Join her in our Austin North Lamar, Dallas, Ft. Worth and Southlake schools the week of March 19.
  • Pete Seghesio, the man in charge of growing the grapes for Seghesio Family Vineyards, will not only share family recipes with you but offer insight into pairing their delicious Sonoma wines with Italian dishes.
And that's just the beginning. You can celebrate St. Patrick's Day with Irish menus; spend a lunch hour learning quick and easy recipes; join our wine experts for our one hour, Monday evening wine workshops; sign your children up for Spring Break Cooking Camps; and improve your knife skills. We look forward to seeing you in our Cooking Schools soon.
