About This Class

Learn the secrets of cooking over live fire! Join Zakary Pelaccio — 2016 James Beard Winner for "Best Chef in the Northeast" — to master fire, cook chicken, and plate a delicious meal for your next gathering.

This 50-minute class is a visual stunner that's packed with insights for every culinary level. Even if you're already cooking chicken on a regular basis, you'll learn some new ways to make the most of this humble meat, plus ways of bringing the great outdoors into your current cooking skills.

Key lessons cover:

  • Building your fire 
  • Separating your chicken 
  • Seasoning your chicken for the grill 
  • Timings and techniques for grilling your chicken 
  • Preparing a flame-kissed veggie salad on the side 

Plus, for those who want to go out and actually build a fire, you’ll learn best practices for which types of wood are best and other cooking safety tips. 

You’ll walk away from this class with the confidence you need to tackle a whole bird over the grill, and hopefully light a spark of your own to go out and cook!
