These days, anyone can be famous. (Just takes a skirt, no panties, and YouTube.)
But going from Regular Joe to rock star still requires a few legitimate skills. Like walking (supermodel), sketching (starchitect), or working miracles with an onion (celebrichef).
So step away from the camera and sign up for Culinary Communion’s new Famous Chefs series. The hands-on cooking classes impart the secrets of a different culinary genius every month.
From the cozy kitchen of his West Seattle home, chef/co-owner Gabriel Claycamp walks you through signature dishes by the likes of The French Laundry’s Thomas Keller and Le Bernardin’s Eric Ripert. No slouch himself (he’s associated with underground restaurant Gypsy), Claycamp also explains each chef’s philosophy and influence on modern cooking.
After graduation, you can move on to the school’s zillions of other classes (wine seminars, cooking tours in France).
But, of course, you’ll never forget your roots.
First class Friday, March 23, 6-10 p.m. Culinary Communion (206-284-8687 or culinarycommunion.com).
