In August and September, Chef Kaytlin Dangaran and her culinary team will be giving cooking classes at the Sarasota Art Museum. Dangaran is the head of The Bistro, the museum’s restaurant, which emphasizes the use of Florida ingredients in dishes inspired by cuisines from around the world. The Bistro’s summer cooking demonstrations will begin with a Greek cooking class on Thursday August 26, then continue with India (Thursday September 16) and Thailand (Thursday September 30).
“Food is my passion and sharing it with others makes me really happy,” says Dangaran. “I really love teaching and trying to make cooking less scary. I want people to come and learn all the tricks of the trade so they can factor that into their lives and feed more people.”
During classes, guests will be seated around the chef’s counter to watch and learn how to prepare simple and tasty dishes and to enjoy the end product. Classes will typically have around 18 guests, allowing people to ask questions and learn.
Not only will attendees learn to cook, but each meal will be accompanied by a classic spirit, wine, or other drink. Each class runs from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. and costs $ 120 per person. Menus for each course are available in line.
The Sarasota Art Museum is located at 1001 S. Tamiami Trail, Sarasota. For more information call (941) 309-4300 or visit the museum website.
